The Libertines thread surprises me. Of course, these boards have had an anti-Libs bias since the second album came out...and now the ice appears to be melting.
Anyhoots, let's take the opportunity to mention our favorite pub rock bands. (Let's not get caught up on definitions here...yous know what sort of bands/sounds I'm talking about.)
Favorite Garage Rock Albums!
Echo & the Bunnymen - Crocodiles
The Ponys - Celebration Castle
Iggy & the Stooges - Raw Power
The Libertines - Up The Bracket
Honorable Mentions: Hold Steady, The Hives debut, ....shite I know they're a lot more stuff me likes but I'm at work and (as typical) my brain is drawing a blank.
