Additional Information

Dubbed ‘America’s Garage Rock Band’ and ‘The Kings Of Garage Rock’, the Fleshtones have been the subject of books (Sweat by Joe Bonomo, Continuum Press 2007) and movies (Pardon Us For Living But The Graveyard’s Full, 2009) as well as amazement from fans and detractors alike. Carelessly (to the purists) tossing together the fuzz-guitar and Farfisa organ riffs of so-called ‘garage rock’ with rockabilly, soul, and surf, The Fleshtones are well into their fifth decade of making believers out of the most jaded nay-sayers with their mongrel stew known as “Super Rock”. Why? After years of messing around, the group finally formed in 1976 when vocalist/keyboardist Peter Zaremba, guitarist Keith Streng, and bassist Jan Marek Pukulski, picked up a bunch of cheap Japanese musical instruments they found abandoned in the basement of the Whitestone, Queens house they were renting. Aiming to return rock and roll to the simplicity and unselfconsciousness of it’s pre-arena rock days, and make sure their friends would have as much fun listening to rock & roll as they had enjoying the music they loved (as well as increase their popularity), the group launched a series of outrageous house parties, coming to the attention of neighbors and the NYPD alike, before debuting at CBGBs in May of that year. They have been earnestly rocking ever since, a record not held by any other group from those heady days
