A band's influence is usually determined in hindsight, and a lot of bands were huge big name artists during their time and they disappeared in the memory hole. I didn't live at the time but I'm sure without Ted Nugent's solo career, we wouldn't know or care about the Amboy Dukes.
they are much more than psychotic reacion, the LP that contains all their material of estudio (PSYCHOTIC REVELATION) is one of the best albums i listened always in my top, this band was missplaced in the timeline maybe...at the time they rock, greatest bands of all the time reached their highest spot...
v The Yardbirds stole their "rave up" from both the Sonics ("The Witch" 1964) and more accurately from Paul Revere and the Raiders ("Steppin Out", early 65,) at least Count Five wrote SOME original songs, the only reason the Yardbirds are famous and respected is because of hindsight, Clapton and Page going on to become household names, in actuality they were bland and derivative, just being honest. Double Dekker Bus in contrast is frickin intense garage rock
i hate to say it... these guys were a one hit wonder. Wow tho, great song... sure it sounds a bit like the yardbirds version of "i'm a man", but these guys were still in high school at the time... i think

Eran unos adelantados a su tiempo. Suenan tan atronadores que nunca dirias que el LP es del 66. Este disco (no tienen mas verdad?) me dejo sin habla. Creo que tuvieron que disolverse porque no vendieron casi nada
