  • Meanwhile, back at the Raunch– Here’s a cache of summa da less cash-generating but brilliantly moronic Garage 45s and some occasionally insightful outasite outtakes. . . .

    ‘Far and Away’ by Wm. Penn is the far and away my favoritie garage rock song that shoulda been a real live 45 but that never really happened since it didn’t get released on vinyl. I had a shitty dub on a reel to reel, but the master sat in the Fantasy vaults until sixties Rock ‘n’ Roll paleontologist Alec ‘Paleo’ Palao groked the importance of this audio fossil find and had the sense to put it out in middle-digital Seedy Quality, but at least you could hear it.

    Lead Guitarist Mike Shapiro told me that Herb Caen wrote about the lyrics in one of his columns around 1966. (Somebody please find it and send it to us to post!). Greg Shaw and I are both of the opinion that Wm. Penn and his Pals were the greatest garage band, like ever and I saw them live dozens of times because I went to high school with 4 of them. Gregg Rolie played Vox Continental organ and later a B3 in the Santana Blues Band. He added some mambo-jambo to the gumbo that became the Santana who wowed ’em at Woodstock.
