Children Of Nuggets

Children Of Nuggets is the title of a 4 CDs' box set compiled by Rhino Records, that tries untidily to focus on the so called "second psychedelic era", that is from the mid-seventies to the mid-nineties. The real explosion of neo-psych and neo-garage sounds came all over the world in the eightes. I was a teenager fan of that scene, that also helped me to discover many more sixties' music. It's not easy to find some clips, because these bands never really emerged from the underground, anyway here is a couple.
The Fuzztones were the prime movers of the New York scene, they soon became a legend thanks also to their exciting live shows. The leader Rudi Protrudi embodies very well the archetype of the forever-teenager-rock-n-roll-rebel!
Hoodoo Gurus were part of the rich and brilliant Australian scene, I hope many of you remember names like Died Pretty, New Christs, Church, Moffs... They played a powerful and attractive blend of garage-punk and power -pop. This song is included in the album Mars Needs Guitars, a good sequel of the beautiful debut work Stonage Romeos.

I'll probably play Fuzztones 'till the end of my days ... I'll never get tired of them.
