Lockstep with Billy Miller and Miriam Linna's KICKS fanzine, Doug Hanner took a deep-dive into the proto-punk scene by celebrating the 1960s three-chord masters of garage rock. In his instance, it was all about Texan bands; the state performed well in producing some vital combos. In this issue he looks at the history of Mouse and the Traps, the Bad Seeds, Zakary Thaks, and the incomparable Larry and the Blue Notes, among others.
