It seems about time for another blast from the jukebox, so here are 5 more fun and fuzzy bits of rock's past. Pretty much straight garage fodder this week, heavy on the sneer and completely essential.

[MP3] Thee Midniters - Jump, Jive & Harmonize
L.A. rockers Thee Midniters work their way through the soul-blues maneuvers like old pros. A crash of rhythm and some blues harp wailing in the background all with that heavy fuzz riff holding it all together.

[MP3] The Little Boy Blues - You Don't Love Me
Let's keep the garage-blues train rolling. Little Boy Blues wail and shuffle, scruffy as hell but sneering like the punks they are. This one's a little rougher and truer to heart with some decent leads pulling out in the end there.

[MP3] Original Sinners - You'll Never Know (What Love is All About)
Original Sinners bring the melody with a jaunty swing and even a shake of tambourine in the background. They wrap a tale of caution with the right amount of twang and scuffle then keep it stuck in your head for weeks to come.

[MP3] Lindy Blaskey & The LaVells - You Ain't Tuff
A tentative bass leads into the chugging garage wonder, breaking open into call and response before the smoldering bridge. Blaskey chides and smirks while the band rolls and tumbles behind him. Maybe not enough to sustain them a career but they sound fine here.

[MP3] Sounds Unlimited - Why Doesn't She Believe Me
Some acrobatic vocals and a fast sprint drive this track along. Add to that a simmering organ break and some pitch perfect clanging on the guitars and Sounds Unlimited have cemented themselves into our garage canon.
