GS, I Love You (1996)

This is another one of those lovely compilations of garage rock songs that gives a glimpse into what the scene in a particular place was up to. Specifically, what those Japanese rockers were up to in the late 1960s. It does remind me of the 4-Wheels compilation of Michigan garage rock from the 60s, excepting the obvious linguistic differences, namely the Japanese lyrics and accented English. However, while the songs are commonly covers or reinterpretations of Western numbers, they didn't do much to rough of the style at all. Instead it seems they were okay with keeping the bubblegum pop sort of garage that came over in the British Invasion. There's naturally a good deal of difference just in the way these bands tried to imitate music they hear from the West, which totally makes it worth hearing. Anyhow, at least I hope you find it as interesting as I did.
