Release Date:03/29/2019;Notes:Past & Present presents Girls In The Garage Volume 7, the seventh volume of a series of garage rock compilations focusing on female artists. Prior to Joan Jett, Patti Smith, Courtney Love, there were the girls in the garage. Like their male counterparts had discovered, being in a band was not only cool and alluring, it was sexual and ultimately political. The garage band was a medium that enabled their voices to be heard these girls weren't going to be kept in the kitchen. Like Pebbles did for the boys, Girls In The Garage captures the raw essence of dreams played out through guitars, drums, mics and amplifiers. Prevailing gender roles would be tested as rock'n'roll became someone else's domain: the girls! Although it's been said that it was rare for a girl group to play on their own records in the mid-1960s, they were not alone. On both sides of the Atlantic, cynical producers largely employed session musicians, afraid of any conceivable faults at the hands of inexperienced groups, male and female. The ones who didn't were visionaries that believed in a new generation's ambitions and capabilities. As the rise of a female presence in rock 'n' roll rose through the appearance of figures such as The Vejtables's Jan Errico, The Honeycombs's Honey Lantree, and the Maureen Tucker (whose deliberately primal technique is such an undervalued part of the Velvet Underground's sound), so too did the rise of all-female bands. Liverpool's Liverbirds and Hull's Mandy And The Girlfriends gave weight to the idea that it was 'normal' and paved the way for likeminded girls to drop the dream boy and pick up the guitar. The prevailing attitude amongst both major and independent record labels was never going to be inspiring or welcoming, but like the wailing blues mamas such as Memphis Minnie or Jessie Mae Hemphill, times were-a-changin' and girls didn't just want to have fun. Emerging groups such as The Pleasure Seekers, White Boots, Ace Of Cups, Bittersweets, and The Luv'd Ones were playing rock 'n' roll on their own terms whilst breaking new ground whether they were trying to or not. Features The Nightingales, Little Frankie, The Lawrence Comp, The Weekends, Tammy & The Bachelors, Nai Bonet, The Uncalled Four, Tremelons, Lori Sanders, The She's, The Pussycats, Gayle Haness, Cidney Sza'vee, Manuela Und Drafi, Jacqueline Taieb, Sunday & The Menn, The Indigos, and The Honeybees. 180 gram green vinyl Edition of 1000 (hand-numbered).
