The garage rock scene that was born in the the early 60’s and has been fortunate to be kept alive by various bands throughout every generation. Throughout the 90’s the scene spawned and influenced the likes of the White Stripes who gained much commercial success and of course a plethora of other acts who whose 7′ records only sold a handful. Most of that scene is covered well in Eric Davidson’s We Never Learn book, documenting the bands that toured shit venues for the love of rock and roll and punk.
If you want more of this we recommend watching the VBS channel’s video documentary on the current US garage rock scene in the naughties.
