The Chessmen Time Machine & Show # 509

This week marked the last Tuesday episode of Revolution Rock to air on CJAM FM. From now on Revolution Rock can be heard every Saturday night from 7-9 PM. Join me this Saturday May 24th to hear the first Saturday edition of the program!

The Chessmen - Time Machine

The following video is for the song “Time Machine” by The Chessmen. The Chessmen were a garage rock band from Hamilton, Ontario (not to be confused with The Chessman from Texas in the 60s). The Hamilton band blended elements of R&B, garage and psychedelic sounds into their music. They only released one full length self titled album in 1989. They have since been featured on numerous garage rock compilations most notably Mister Garager’s Neighbourhood on Og Records, What’s All The Fuzz About through What Wave magazine and the Time Machine compilation out on Stomp! Records in 1996.
