I'm Timothy Gassen, a filmmaker, music producer, publisher, journalist and longtime screamer with the band THE MARSHMALLOW OVERCOAT, kicking oout the fuzz since 1986. I am also frontman for THE PURPLE MERKINS, with lots of 45s and an album (available now as a CD). I produce other garage-psych groups, and have been an A&R guy for record labels.
I'm also the author of both the print version and DVD version of THE KNIGHTS OF FUZZ, documenting the neo-garage explosion since 1980. (NEW PAPER BOOK EDITION DUE OUT LATE 2013!)
I've also written hundreds of garage-psych features and reviews for newspapers and magazines worldwide. The late Greg Shaw (of Bomp! Records) dubbed me "The Guru of Garage," and for that I am grateful. :)
'66-styled GARAGE & PYCH ROCK, BABY! If you've read any of my garage books or feature columns or reviews (or heard any of my records), you know I'm in LOVE with hundreds of current and classic garage combos. Nothing is as cool as hearing a new cool '66 garage fuzzadelic song FOR THE FIRST TIME!
I'm partial to the ones I write and direct. ;)
THE ELECTRIC MESS
Promo video for the new Electric Mess album, "House on Fire," coming out on Soundflat Records (LP/CD)
So, I was wondering if anyone know about any new music from Ron Ward from Speedball Baby. I am a big fan of that band, but it seems like Ward has just disappeared. Please let me know if you have heard any new developments or news from the Ron Ward front. Thanks.

The Jackets will be releasing their new record "Shadows Of Sound" on Voodoo Rhythm Records later this year. To help promote the record and reach a global audience a video is essential. Together with their friends and video experts from Decoy Collective who shot our 2012 video "Freak Out", The Jackets intend to bring to life an extraordinary new music video Inspired by one of The Jackets new tracks, "Keep Yourself Alive" set in a world where most 'normal' people have turned into brain-dead zombies for the song "Keep Yourself Alive" and you can help! Please check out our Indiegogo campaign for all the info and a list of amazing perks such as our brand new record, an amazing Zombie Package complete with records, posters and more:
