The Pur' swa' der...s - You're Mine
I pulled this little New Jersey gem out of a box of shit recently. A nice little garage number. Nothing to punky or wild but cool non-the-less. I'm always on the look out for shitz from my home state. Don't ask me why. I was happy to leave that over run w/ Jersey Shore type scum bags, bennies, old people & half a police state in the dust, yet i still feel the need to collect all things Jer-Z....
As for the Pur' swa' der...s here is some info i lifted: Winners of the 1967 New Jersey Battle of the Bands, The Pur'Swa'Der...s would later compete in the National Battle and finish in a very respectable sixth place. A very successful regional band, The Pur'Swa'Der...s toured for three years as part of a traveling auto show, and recorded a couple of original singles. The band would later morph into The Strimbling Blimbles and record a very successful single before calling it quits in 1971.
You can read a pretty keen interview w/ band member Jim Corbett HERE:
