Garage rock USA 1966. Discografia minore (parte 1.)

in Rubriche

CALEIDOSCOPIO ROCK USA ANNI 60/ Il 1966 fu “annus mirabilis” del rock americano anni ‘60, l’incrocio tra influsso della “British Invasion”, forme di garage crudo precorritrici del punk (“protopunk”) e una lenta evoluzione (dalla seconda metà dell’anno) verso i primi pionierismi psichedelici.

 

In buona sostanza un crogiolo di novità e un’ondata musicale che coinvolse tantissimi giovani statunitensi negli anni tra la “high school” ed il “college”. Si apre qui una discografia a puntate che andrà a sondare tutta quell’area del rock USA “minore” composto da bands ed etichette “meteora”, di quel garage rock di nicchia ingiustamente dimenticato ma fortunatamente riemerso nella storia a partire dagli anni ‘80, in primis grazie alle raccolte “Nuggets” e “Pebbles”:
