As classic rock 'n' roll reached middle age, teenage musicians sought to retain its raw, primal energy through rough-hewn instrumentals. In the mid-1960s, the Beatles and the British Invasion swept the nation, and soon every neighbourhood had its own garage band. Groups like the Sonics and the 13th Floor Elevators burnt brightly but briefly, only to be rediscovered by a new generation of connoisseurs in the 1970s. Numerous compilation albums followed, spearheaded by Lenny Kaye's seminal Nuggets, which resulted in a garage-rock rebirth during the 1980s and '90s. Be it the White Stripes of the Black Keys, bands have consistently found inspiration in the simplicity and energy of garage rock. It is a revitalizing force, looking back to the past to forge the future. And this, for the first time, is its story"--Back cover."@en ;
