Modcast #425: Garage Rockin' Through the 80s

Hello garage rockers, are you ready to rock and roll? Special delivery to you on this modcast is some great old 80s garage rock. It's loud and brash, with lots of fuzzy guitars and pounding drums. The girls will all be in miniskirts and gogo boots, while the boys will have Prince Valiant hair and lotsa paisley shirts. This show is packed with great music, some of it a little obscure as I've chosen some deeper tracks that maybe don't get played as much. So packed that you won't even hear groups like Gravedigger V, Tell-Tale Hearts, Pandoras, Crawdaddy's, or the Fuzztones. But what you do get is going to blow you away.

The Crawling Walls were actually pretty active in Albuquerque from 1983 to 1985, including opening slots for the Ramones, Plan 9, and The Leaving Trains.
A fairly complete history of the band can be found at www.crawlingwalls.com

Hey Bob, good to hear from you again. You actually sort of corrected me on this away back when I played some Crawling Walls. My memory seems to be lacking of late. Thanks for the link to the page, that's a great rundown of the band history. I'm going to highlight it on Facebook as well. Cheers.
