GARAGE AND BEAT #1: $3.50 ppd., 8 ½ X 11, offset newsprint, 46 pgs.

Jan 22, 2011

I always liked Edwin's column, No Car Garage, in Flipside. He knows so much about music and has a real talent for sharing that knowledge with you without pulling the typical record collector bullshit of making you feel stupid for not knowing about, say, a Japanese garage rock album that went out of print five years before you were born. The premier issue of Garage and Beat reads like an extended Edwin column, with the common Edwin homage to Dionysus Records and the Dave Clark Five, plus a down-to-earth story about his passion for record collecting; interviews with Les Sexareenos and the Bobbyteens; and bunch of record reviews. All in all, it's a good read. -Sean Carswell (P. Edwin Letcher, 2754 Prewitt St., Los Angeles, CA 90031)
