Two of the most famous 80’s garage revival bands in the battle of the garages. Mono Man vs Rudi Protrudi EPs fight. ”Someone Who’ll Treat You Right Now” is Lyres 4 trax ’85 EP on New Rose records with three great originals and cool cover of The Pete Best Combo ”(I’ll Try) Anyway”. ”Bad News” is ’86 a remake of The Fuzztones debut single plus three cover trax, two of which have landed on classic ”Lysergic Emanations” album. I know ya know but anyways… Check this out!
Great sounboard recording of an ’85 live show. Kick ass stuff from your favorite garage gang. Vinyl rip, Dig !!!

I’ve planned this for a long time and now here is a big fat 72 trax collection of songs covered by garage rock heroes the Lyres. As you know Jeff ‘Mono Man’ Conolly is a big fan of 60’s garage/beat especially The Kinks, The Pretty Things, The Sonics, The Standells, Chocolate Watch Band, 13th Floor Elevators, Flamin’ Groovies, The Stooges, Dutch band The Outsiders as well as some obscure ”Pebbles/Back from the grave” kinda stuff. Lyres have that rare ability kinda ‘magic’ to make others tunes sound as their own [somethin’ like The Cramps or Ramones]. Most songs in this collection are from 60’s but there are some R&B/Roll from 50’s and two trax from late 70’s Boston garage-punk acts. Almost every song they covered on their studio albums and live recordings is here, sometime in 2 versions. So, if you’re a fan of Lyres and 60’s garage/beat you should check these Mono Man favorites. Dig !!!

Listen up folks and listen well !!! Here is a total re-up of this legendary Boston garage rock gang fronted by Mono Man [ex DMZ]. If you have no LYRES [which I doubt] you just ain’t livin’. Here you got all of their studio recordings including singles & EP’s, as well as LIVE stuff. They were No.1 80’s garage revival act and for sure a TOP TEN garage band of all times including 60’s. So ya no… This is pretty much A MUST! Don’t give it up now, Dig!!!

THE CUSTOMS were DMZ/Lyres guitar king Peter Greenberg’s Cincinnatti late 70’s garage punk outfit. This here is a re-post of their singles/unreleased/live stuff circa ’79/80. Some real fine 60’s garage influenced punkers for Lyres/DMZ fans. Long Gone!
