lately, ive dabbled in alot of 1960s garage rock, mostly on the somewaht off the beaten track obscure stuff, to the totally unknown. from the 13th floor elevators, the bubble puppy, the electric prunes. but now im hunting for old local bands from my area, ive already found a few. like we the people. its amasing how much talent there was back in the day that was never really discoverd. what a shame.

I think this was the original. 1962..... Hendrix made it the most popular!

Garage psych rock eventually morphed into progressive rock and lost it's way in the 70's. In the 80's the sound was revived by bands like the Long Riders, Green On Red, and the Rain Parade among others. To a certain extent the Bangles and REM had elements of this style in their music. Overseas their were bands like The Three O Clock and the Dream Academy with the psych style. 80's psychadelia was one of the first big movements in the alternative scene, but it just did not catch on as strong as it should have.

As I stated in another thread BanjoMike started, Susan Hoffs is an icon! Even on the Bangles, she had a jingle jangle Rickenbacker guitar country rock thing on "Where were you when I needed you" and did a lot of great music solo. The Peterson sisters also drifted into country rock in the 90s. Susanna grew up in LA in the 70s and her mom was in showbiz, so she was probably influenced by the Mulholland canyon thing. The Smithereens were a Jersey basic rock band, not sure if "garage"? Los Lobos mentions immigrants banging out traditional music in garages, Waylon also covered this song, "Will the Wolf Survive". It seems to be a metaphor for la cultura surviving in El Norte, but in Waylon's hands it took on a double meaning about whether legit country music could survive. Not sure if this is exactly "garage rock".
