Meet west coast garage rockers The Intelligence. Although “Thank You God For Fixing the Tape Machine” will long be my favorite track, there don’t seem to be any good recordings of it yet on YouTube. In the meantime, here is “Dating Cops,” performed live at a record shop in Georgia. I especially love that their drummer is a girl (and I’d sure rather play drums than guitar if only Phil and the neighbors wouldn’t mind the noise). Don’t worry about not being able to hear the lyrics… it basically goes… “Going… going out… going out with you… going out with is… like going out with a cop.” And then change all the you’s to me’s and you’ve got the second verse. It’s high energy nonsense, the best kind of rock n’ roll!
Thanks to the Other AC for introducing me to these guys.
