Editors’ Notes

Since the mid-1970s NYC’s Fleshtones, regardless of fashion, have delivered solid, unpretentious ‘60s-based garage rock. Thirty years later, they’re still at it, having lost none of their initial firepower. If anything, this 2008 release finds the group in stronger form, as the success of their disciples — the White Stripes, the Mooney Suzuki — and the issuance of Joe Bonomo’s long-awaited band biography Sweat: The Story of the Fleshtones, America’s Garage Band have completely recharged the group’s batteries. Recorded in Detroit and NYC with Stripes/ Suzuki producer Jim Diamond and CBGBs guitar legend Ivan Julian (Richard Hell & the Voidoids), respectively, Good Look is a fuzz-drenched, back to basics garage rock textbook that rattles with hawking harmonica, unrestrained unison vocals and a genuine chaos rallying around songs pegged on strong, solid hooks. “This Time Josephine,” “Feels Good To Feel” and “Down to the Ground” should be in the group’s repertoire for the next thirty years. Twelve solid tunes and no ballads allowed.

Customer Reviews

good as ever

if you don't know the fleshtones - you should know the fleshtones! nothing groundbreakingly new or different on this album - just more awesome, fun ,super rock!

Not only should you take a good look, but take a good listen!

The first time I heard the Fleshtones was right before Roman Gods came out in the early 80's. Here we are 25 years later and they are still cranking out recordings worthy of really enjoying. In fact this particular release is as good as they get, not a single dud in the bunch. However, there are some real gems. My particular favorites are Shiney Hiney and Feels Good to Feel. The Fleshtones simply one of those garagebands that like the Energizer bunny just keep going, and that's a good thing for us as long as they continue producing quality music like that on this recording.

Consider yourself unlucky if you haven't heard of this band!

This album or any of their albums flat out rock! Every time I take a friend to see one of their live shows, it always ends with the friends saying, that was the best show I have seen in maybe EVER! Buy their music!!

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Often tagged as garage rock revivalists, the Fleshtones mix the fuzz guitar and Farfisa organ sounds of that genre with rockabilly, '50s and '60s R&B, and surf into a potent retro stew the group likes to call "super rock." The group formed in 1976 in Queens, New York with vocalist/keyboardist Peter Zaremba, guitarist Keith Streng, bassist Jan Marek Pakulski, and drummer Bill Milhizer and aimed to return rock & roll to the simplicity and unselfconsciousness of the '50s and early '60s.
