Muck and the Mires started off in 2001, but I would have sworn they've been around at least two decades longer than that. The Boston garage rock staples just have that timeless feel and sound much more like a band from the early 80's punk/rock scene than the early 00's. They've just released a new single, "Beat Revolution," that sounds like it would pre-date the 80's by about fifteen years. This is the kind of garage rock that was made in the 60's, or at least at the height of 60's nostalgia during the 80's. It's the kind of song that sounds like it was from a Nuggets compilation. "Beat Revolution" is pure classic early garage rock 'n' roll, and who doesn't need that sound more often?
You can watch the video for "Beat Revolution" below. The song is available as a single via Dirty Water Records in Europe and Rum Bar Records in the US. For more on Muck and the Mires, check out the band's website.
