New Weekly Feature: Friday Nuggets - "Psychotic Reaction"

We are starting a new Friday feature at WYMA: Friday Nuggets, featuring a garage rock classic.  Nuggets of course being the title of the absolute must own Lenny Kaye and Jac Holzman compilation of 60's psychedelia and garage rock.  We will at times be broader than those CDs but in that era and vein.

Many of the new bands that Rocksteady and John in particular feature here at WYMA are direct descendants of this great lineage.

We will lead with one of my all-time favorite songs, a certified classic and prototypical garage rocker, "Psychotic Reaction" by the Count Five, from 1965.

The Count Five were from San Jose, CA. "Psychotic Reaction" was a top 5 single, as big in its day as say a Taylor Swift or Maroon 5 hit today.

If you have ideas for songs you'd like to see in this feature, please feel free to include them in comments.

Pretty much anything on 'Uptight Tonight: The Ultimate 60's Garage Collection' is a great place to start. Of course, Psychotic Reaction is on that comp.

If you can find 'em, the 'Back from the Grave' series or 'Fuzz, Flaykes & Shakes' are great and have many of the rarer gems to be found.
