The Gories-I know you be houserockin' (1994)

So this is a compilation cd of the 2 Gories albums that came out in the late 80s/early 90s. 25 tracks of pure garage rock brilliance. Basically what this band is all about is they were the first of the garage rock revival bands years before there was a garage rock revival. The sound is basically, at the root, a 60s "nuggets" band instilled with a lot of The Cramps and a bit of Pussy Galore. It never gets boring because it is like a little nuggets band that experimented a hell of a lot. Most of the songs are about drinking and hanging out and being drunk while hanging out. It's got a very nice mood about the whole thing, it feels very complete, lots of rockers, lots of ballads, lots of noise, lots of scuzz, this is a dirty record that needs to be recognized. also their cover of Nilsson's "Early In the Morning" is fucking incredible
