When I was a kid, my mom listened to OLDIES stations so I grew up hearing the sounds of the 50s and 60s. I’ve always loved the music from these decades, particularily in the GARAGE ROCK genre.
PSYCHOTIC REACTION was a 1966 jam by a San Jose, Cali band called COUNT FIVE. They were known for wearing vampire capes during their live performances. While this song was the bands only hit, it reached #5 on the BILLBOARD CHARTS making it a cornerstone of Garage Rock. Below is a clip of the band Lip Synching their hit on some 60s dance party program.
Hopefully by now, you’ve already heard Psychotic Reaction in my TROPICAL TERROR studio mix. If not, I suggest you check it out. Now!
