014 - Coachmen and Heart Attacks
The Perpetual Spirits of Turpentine had a peculiar name, that's for sure -- but their music was pure garage pop. And their song "I'm a Lucky Guy" has the distinction of being one of the few true stereo tracks we've played on our podcast!
And we close with the Coachmen, a group that was very active throughout Arkansas in the mid 60's. They opened for many important acts on tour, and even played at the 1965 World's Fair -- and this was while the band members were still in high school!
