Everyone should have a group of people they share music with. By that I mean, get turned on, and turn on in return. The "you gotta hear this" friends, the humble ones. Not the "I can top that" types, but someone who genuinely wants others to hear this or that. We should all have those friends. Ray, "The Guy Who Always Finds Good Shit On YouTube" is one of those guys. He just did it again. Today he posted an audio only YouTube clip of Zakary Thaks' "Bad Girl". That's all it took.
Zakary Thaks is textbook garage band, capable of greatness on vinyl, but in reality not all that mind blowing, at least not in the live video I just viewed. It's good, just not the riot one would expect. It's nine songs, twenty nine minutes, ample time to put it in gear. Alas, they show themselves as merely good; albeit with great records to their name. That's what makes them so textbook. They had to have been really, really, good at times. They did open for the Yardbirds and the 13th Floor Elevators. But you'd never know it by the video. A handful of songs and a short video don't add up to a comprehensive overview, I know that. Whatever, these three are awesome, and the video, at the very least, has an anthropological coolness to it.
