The snarling vocals fronting the fuzz 'n' Farfisa-laced sound of 1966 chart-toppers the Standells epitomized the wild in the streets teenage spirit of Sunset Strip-era Los Angeles as much as anyone! Led by the entrancing keyboards of original lead singer Larry Tamblyn, with the the searing guitar of Tony Valentino, and snotty, post-pubescent voice of drummer Dick Dodd, the Standells cut "Dirty Water," then followed it up with a laundry list of mighty, quintessentially American, garage-rock anthems that would one day fuel the eager young minds (and sticky fingers) of the Stooges, Ramones and Green Day, as well as legions of adenoidal punk-rockers yet to come!
