Deep 6 - Garage D'or (1986, Coyote)

There's not a plethora of info to be had on Deep 6, a New York City trio who had an album on Coyote Records the same year another trio, Athens, GA's Dreams So Real, released their first LP on the very same label.  Brothers John and Dan Braun had played in Live Skull and the Del-Byzantines prior to turning in this platter of gimmick-free modern rock that slots in comfortably with its era while not getting mired in '80s indulgences.  The post-punk sway of "Stay Right Here" and "Open Mind" vaguely recall the Lucy Show and Comsat Angels, and in the process turn out to be Garage D'ors most charismatic offerings.  The remainder is respectable, but not always moving left-of-the-dial fare.  Side one ends with an untitled track threading together lines from a bevy of recognizable classic rock tunes and oldies that would've probably been more useful as a b-side.  Go figure.

The above, dear readers, is what I can only refer to as writing that draws attention to itself.

The Go Away Garage is a real garage in Wichita Kansas. Mitch Willis started out building custom hot rods on West Street and now builds motorcycles at the joint on Commerce St.,

An additional concern for RBR was that the last garage was so close to the white line marking the pit exit that
its drivers were not able to accelerate up to the speed limit before crossing it, which created a small disadvantage at each stop.

where the garage has been for more than a dozen years. When Willis needed privacy to devote to his projects, he’d put up a 4-foot-by-8-foot sign that said “Go Away." The name stuck. Thus the Go Away Garage.
