At the junction between 60's classicism and punk-rock were standing lots of early to mid-70's bands who predated the power pop sound. Tonight we payed tribute to them, especially to their moodier side, reminding the best 60's b-sides.

 

Pony – It’s gonna be so easy

Clap – Get it while you can

News – Loser

Hollins Ferry – Too bad about sorrows

Blue – I wish I could fly

Rockin’ Horse – You say

April Wine – I wouldn’t want to lose your love

Nimbo – Forget her

Creme Soda – Keep it heavy

Zerfas – I need it higher

Donnie & Joe Emerson – Baby

The Boys – I’m not satisfied

The Nerves – When you find out

Shoes – Something I can’t see

Monik – Maybe I know
