ATTACK OF THE JERSEY TEENS

One of the first 60s garage comps I bought was 'Attack Of The Jersey Teens' in late 1984 or early '85. I would have bought this in the same order from Funhouse Records with other acclaimed garage comps 'Back From The Grave Volumes 1 & 2'.

To say those three comps had an impact on my life is an understatement. I was always fascinated by the picture on the front of the 'Jersey Teens' comp. Look at those young lads. The lead guitarist was 14 years old at the time. His lead guitar breaks on The Young Monkeymen 45s are killer.

I just LOVE this comp and it's been one of my very favourite collections for almost 30 years. Amazing how time flies. When I started collecting 45s in earnest about 10 years ago I decided to focus some of my attention on the discs released by groups from the small State of New Jersey. I've acquired quite a few over the years including most from 'Attack Of The Jersey Teens'.....

There are plenty other cool 45s by the likes of The Satyrs, The Yorkshire Puddin', The Trees, The Bucaneers's, The Abstract Sound, Galaxies IV and The Myddle Class...plus others...

Now that i've completed my MILAN project I've been inspired enough to create an expanded 2CD set of 'Attack Of The Jersey Teens'....It will be my next homemade creation for January 2013.
