Garage Discoveries # 9 - The Loved Ones

Wow! Just wow! Truly one of the great garage singles and surely where The Triffids and Nick Cave came from. Just heard this following a tip off from Courtney Barnett. Always listen to what that woman tells me to. Just a remarkable record. The group were named after the Evelyn Waugh novel, another point in their favour. This reached the Top 20 in Australia, their home country in 1967 and it has since been covered by Nick Cave, INXS, Ed Kuepper and probably every other Australian artist of note.
I'm off to investigate a bit more!
