Off to the city for a screening of What We Do Is Secret, a bio-pic on the seminal LA punk band The Germs starring Bijou Phillips. Could be a hot one!!!
In the meantime, from 1967, here's the original Youngbloods (with the very cool Jerry Corbett singing lead) on American Bandstand with their almost hit single "Grizzley Bear." As you can see, at this point they were hardly the hippie band they've been painted as (and to an extent became, later); they were instead a snazzy, stylish NYC folk-rock band who were thinking about the pop charts, a la their contemporaries the Lovin' Spoonful. Seriously -- if you've never heard their first two albums, you're the poorer for it. (And the third album has the transcendent "Darkness Darkness," which behooves behearing as well).
As always, a coveted Powerpop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who divines the clip's relevance to tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.
