al's untouchables Come On Baby / Stick Around (7", £4.50)
In 1965 The Untouchables recorded what turned out to be a double-sided hit in the upper Midwest in 1966 with the songs "Come On Baby" and "Stick Around", both penned by Hankins and Douglas writing under the name of Thomas Richards. "Come on Baby" is now being called "The Holy Grail of Garage Punk". From Iowa City, Iowa. Second of two 45s, this from 1966. Both sides feature screaming punk. "Come on Baby" is full of raw energy and fast trashy ringing guitar. "Stick Around" is an original composition, blues/soul crossover with an intense break. A classic yes, come on baby, crazy drums, wild guitar and fast organ sounds = garage punk.
