Day 5

July 11th 2017

Today we’re lis­ten­ing to The Wig’s ‘Crackin’ Up’, simul­ta­ne­ous­ly fran­tic and poignant. Such songs used to be mis­named Garage Rock. Wrong!!! The exper­tise of the rhythm sec­tion, the deft tem­po changes, the dex­trous and mov­ing organ lines, and most of all the sen­si­tiv­i­ty of the lead gui­tar as it mir­rors the singer’s despair? Garage Rock? Hard­ly! The Wig here­in reveal them­selves to have been noth­ing less than young musi­cal aces at the peak of their young lives.
