“For Khan, who feels that there were garage punk bands even back in the ’60s, his mission has more to do with the present than the past: “I don’t think of it as revivalism. I think of it as carrying on a tradition of rock ‘n’ roll, without being purist, because I think rock ‘n’ roll is very important, like, for NOW. It’s sad when I see kids who have no idea who Chuck Berry is.””
My friend wrote a love letter to garage punk. Give it a read.
