? and the Mysterians: An Interview [Side A]
Source:Vorda (Allan) Music History Collection
Side A of interview with ?, founder of Michigan garage band the Mysterians. Talks about origins of the band, possibly being the first Mexican American rock band, the making of their hit "96 Tears," his thoughts on being labelled a garage band and the distribution of their first LP. Sound on original recording begins speeding up to the point of unintelligibility about halfway through the tape, likely from low batteries on original recording. Pub version attempts to correct this, but much of this side remains unintelligible.
