Can you believe this performance is from 1965?!
The thing I’m most shocked about is how contemporary they sound. Even more so, how this band totally predicted the Punk movement in the 80’s, and this was 15 years before that!
On top of that, the drummer. His technique is the exact opposite of today’s punk and rock drummers. That and he’s playing traditional. Looks like he comes more from the Jazz world than anything else. It’s beautiful when a drummer does his homework. That or maybe I’m partial to technique that comes from the wrist and elbows, versus the shoulder and the core.
How amazing is the short guitar solo right around 1:15?? So much energy and attitude. It would be great to hear these things become fashionable in pop music again.
