I Got No Reasons To Complain, Yeah...
The Alarm Clocks recorded two raw slices of garage punk, Yeah! and No Reason to Complain, live in a studio in 1966 and released it on their own Wake Up label, and a month or so later recorded a live demo tape of their live set at Sound Ideas Recording Studios. Nothing much came of either venture, and the group disbanded in 1967. Fast forward over 25 years and both tracks appear on the wonderful Crypt Records compilation, Back From The Grave, and all of a sudden The Alarm Clocks are one of the coolest garage bands ever. Bet they never thought that 20 years after they recorded both tracks that Mojo would name it as one of Top 20 garage - rock songs of all time.
