We're Gonna Change The World!: The 60’s Chicago Garage Sound of Quill Records

During the peak years of the ’60s garage band wave, Pete Wright was one of the nation’s top independent record promotion men. His records were not only hits on Chicago’s crucially important WLS but also in small markets throughout the Midwest. Whether in the Windy City or in these smaller outposts, he was tipped off to tons of untapped local talent. So much so that launching a record label was the next logical step. Thus was born Quill Records, a short-lived but supremely cool label heavily indebted to the garage band sound.

This definitive overview collects only the most rockin’ sides from the label; from the Malibu’s who manage to outdo their idols the Animals, at least in pure unbridled energy, to the Skunks who on their overdriven, fuzzed-out cover of “Do the Duck” could be mistaken for a UK mod/freakbeat act. And that’s just for starters in a set of teen rave-ups from the likes of the Delights, the Commons, Ltd., Chances R, the Riddles and more.

If the appearance of the Don Caron Orchestra in the track listing causes serious head scratching amongst the more discerning of you garage connoisseurs, well, we couldn’t help ourselves. Their “Hot Pastrami” may be the most scorching sax ’n’ reverb instrumental you hear all year.

This set also includes rare photos, label scans and extensive liner notes (with interviews from both Pete Wright and many of ­the bands).
