One Side Wonders #15: The Tremors – Wondering Why (1967)

Tremors_labelAn absolute stormer from this Urbana, Ohio outfit who released one single on the Catalina label in June 1967. A mournful organ introduction quickly gives way to a frenzied fuzz and keyboard pounder with strong vocals and melody, and excellent reverb-laden lead guitar work.

Missing side: ‘What Have I Done’ (described by Teenbeat Mayhem as a “melodic organ ballad”). A copy sold for $2,300 on eBay in 2012, so I don’t expect to be hearing the flip-side just yet.

Reissues: as there is little or no information about the band, it is fitting that ‘Wondering Why’ is on Garage Punk Unknowns Volume 2.
