Revolution Rock (Revisited) The Haunted & Show # 484

This week's program was a repeat of a show that originally aired back in February 2013. The show focused on Canadian Garage Rock bands focusing primarily on bands from the 60s and 80s; The post that originally coincided with this program was on the Toronto band The Ugly Ducklings and their single "Nothin’" originally released in 1966. You can check out my original post on “Nothin’” by clicking this link. There were numerous other bands featured on the program. One of the bands featured was The Haunted:

The Haunted formed in Montreal, Quebec in 1965. The band was formed by guitarist Jurgan Peter and after winning a battle of the bands contest at the Montreal Forum, the band recorded their debut single. The first prize for this contest was recording time, which resulted in the single “1-2-5” backed with “Eight O’Clock This Morning”. The song was one of the first in a string of singles and releases from the band. This song, which is often viewed as a cult classic is seen as one of the first successful singles in the Canadian Garage genre. This song, like The Ugly Ducklings “Nothin” (mentioned here), both emphasize elements of Punk, Garage and Blues. “1-2-5” specifically features infectious harmonica and struck a chord with Canadians and eventually Americans alike.
