The surface noise here is an essential part of the listening experience & I, for one, appreciate it. And you :-)

No, Evil did not form out of the ashes of the Montells! They were both going strong in 1965 and 1966. When drummer Jeff Allen left the Montells, he joined Evil, and with a few other personnel changes, the band recorded their classic "Whatcha Gonna Do About It". But the core of Evil (Doyle, Kinchen) were not Montells members, and the core of the Montells (Ragsdale-Weatherford-et al) were never Evil members. Jeff

Neither of these versions of Don't Put Me Down where they say fuck and it's bleeped out. It's on the All Cops in Delirium comp though.

Great post! "I'm Movin' On" is a garage / protopunk classic.

John Doyle, lead singer of The Evil, has this to say about it:

"...'I'm Movin' On' had been a couple of cords, and a title, nothing more. On the way to the studio we realized we need another song, and it was written on the way to the studio. I had a terrible cold that day, and that could account for the attitude on it. But yes, it was written in about 5-10 minutes, and you can hear the mistakes in the words as I was reading them... 'I'm Movin' On' and a few others sat in my closet for years as scratchy old demo's until I gave them to Rock Historian Jeff Lemlich to keep in his collection. I never thought they'd be released..."

Love your blog -- keep up the good work!

Andras, former guitarist / singer for the garage revivalist project THEE DIRTYBEATS
