    I expect participation from Gnarly and Casek in the least.

    I am going to focus on 90's revival because that is the majority of what I listen to. Hopefully someone here is a little more into the 60's stuff, I've just never had the stamina to wade through the plethora of bands from then, and then trying to find the records (and the money) just seems like a really tall order that I have yet to feel like dealing with.

    First up is The Mummies.
    The Kings of Budget Rock.
    [ http://www.themummies.com/ ]
    The Mummies are especially known for their matching, tattered mummy costumes they wore on stage and their impertinent and insulting attitude that they brought with them.[2] They created and promoted the concept of 'Budget Rock', which rejected professionalism and star status in favor of a simplified do-it-yourself aesthetic.[3] As part of this concept they performed and recorded only on outdated and often damaged equipment. For a tour vehicle they used a garishly painted 1963 Pontiac ambulance. As part of their lo-fi manifesto, they released their music only on vinyl for many years, allowing 'official' CD format releases only in the 2000s.
    Pretty much my favorite band of all time. I have never seen them live (they broke up when I was 9) and I was out of town for their surprise reunion show last year (faggots)
    Recommended album: everything. everything. everything.

    Second, The Royal Pendletons
    [no official website that I could find in my brief search]
    [no wiki]
    Out of New Orleans. Great rock and roll. I am actually not even certain if they are still together, I doubt it (seeing as how most of the bands I listen to stay together for no longer than a couple years)
    Recommended album: Oh Yeah, Baby!

    Third, The Church Keys
    The band that formed from several other awesome bands. Only ever put out 1 album but damn is it good. Not a lot on these guys seeing as how they were around for a very short time.
    Unfortunately all I can find is this, which is nowhere near their usual energy. But they weren't around for long enough to have a plethora of videos of them on the interneck.
    Recommended album: Work With It!!
    *From what I recall they do have a website, it is a geocities or lycos website though and it is terrible.

    I'll do more tomorrow, this thread has been waiting for about 2 hours now to be posted. I got side tracked and started ordering records and now it is time to go to the bar.

    Iloveboxcars, i was going to let you start this and I'm glad you did.

    Being that I'm from Memphis, i've grown up on Rock and Roll. That sounds cliche', but I'm surrounded by that and blues. It's unavoidable. I'll probably be focusing on more 00 garage / punk and some 80's - 90's garage, but probably wont be hitting anything prior to that. I'll leave it up to boxcars and casek to contribute that and maybe give me a more solid foundation in the roots of garage. Anyhow.... with all that said-

    Fatso Jetson

    Jack Oblivian

    The Compulsive Gamblers


    The Sonics

    The Electric Bunnies

    The Gories

    King Khan and The BBQ Show

    King Khan and The Shrines ( not really sure if this falls into garage rock or soul or what...)

    Oh, thanks for that Fatso Jetson. I've heard the name but I never bothered to check them out.

    Gnarly already did Jack Oblivian but I'm going to go ahead and do The Oblivians as planned anyway.

    The Oblivians
    The Oblivians were an American garage punk power trio that existed from 1993 to 1998. In the 1990s, their blues-infused brand of bravado, crudely-recorded punk rock made them one of the most popular and prominent bands within the underground garage rock scene.
    Formed in Memphis, Tennessee, the band consisted of three members -- Greg Cartwright, Jack Yarber, and Eric Friedl -- who alternated between instruments on stage and in the studio, each member serving as vocalist, guitarist, and drummer, in turn.

    Los Cincos
    I don't know anything about this band and do not feel like finding anything out, but I like their sound.

    Immortal Lee County Killers
    The Immortal Lee County Killers has been called "Truly the place where punk meets the blues."Weise often referred to punk blues as the "fucked up blues" and the "real punk blues". Taking influence from Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker, Pussy Galore, MC5, Skip James, Bad Brains and The Gun Club, ILCK approached the punk blues genre with reverence and originality, lending credibility to a genre that had sometimes been previously employed as a musically ironic post-punk and garage rock aesthetic. They did not take influence from blues-rock, preferring the older Delta blues and Chicago blues styles

    The Phantom Surfers
    Also contained members of The Mummies at certain times.
    Aside from releases this is the only information on their wiki:
    The Phantom Surfers are a surf rock band formed in 1988.

    more to come.

    I have a lot of this stuff, so I'm not really sure where to begin.

    Black Diamond Heavies are good. They're about as lo-fi as it gets. And I liked the first two Black Keys albums. The Make-Up was good, Ian Svenonius has always been into lo-fi.

    I'll have to look through my compilations and see what's good.
