Thee Faded Pyctures at the Time Out Lounge, Tempe AZ, Saturday Sept 24, 2016

 Melanie and the Midnite Marauders made our first road trip to Phoenix courtesy of Jamie and Thee Faded Pyctures, along with the Time Out Lounge. We had a great time bringing our brand of high energy honky tonk to this part of the desert, seeing plenty of old friends and, of course, diggin' on Thee Faded Pyctures!

Thee Pyctures brought two sets worth of garage/punk rock'n'roll, covering the likes of "Night of the Phantom", "ESP", "You're No Good", "I Can't Tell You", "Soapy", "What a Way to Die" and a slew of their own originals like "Everyone Knows That I'm High", "Tonight You Die", "Leave My House" and their "difficult one" (according to Jamie), "Reading My Mind".

Jamie Told great anecdotes about the tunes as introductions, and played cool licks on his Vox Continental keyboard while guitarist Scott punched out chunky chords and frantic fuzz riffs, Danny kept things moving with his rockin' bass runs and fellow Danny drove it all home on the drums, while singing backup!

So good to know that real garage rock'n'roll continues to thrive throughout the country - and world - now 50 years after some of the originals were recorded! Hoping that these guys put out a recording soon!
