This vintage playlist, from winter 2013, compiles the 60s and 70s psychedelic, experimental, rock, and garage roots of retrotransmission, much like Lenny Kaye’s Nuggets series documented garage’s influence on punk. The bands on this playlist, such as The Sonics, The Who, ? and the Mysterians, Captain Beefheart. CAN, and Hawkwind, etc. largely influenced people such as Patti Smith, Alan Vega and Martin Rev, and Genesis P-Orridge, respectively,  to make some of the most innovative and influential sounds of the 70s and 80s.
