Everybody always has a great time at Copycat Cover Song Night, hosted by DJ Xerox and held at Otto’s Shrunken Head in Manhattan. When it pays tribute to the great garage rock compilation Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From the First Psychedelic Era 1965 – 1968 the boss quotient is immeasurably magnified. Such was the case on September 23rd when the third tribute to that great compilation album was held. As per the others, Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus was asked to be guest DJ. Also, at the last two the creator of Nuggets Lenny Kaye was a special guest DJ. However, he couldn’t make the scene this time. In his stead there was someone who many regard as one of Lenny Kaye’s greatest disciples, a man who definitely studied the Nuggets album and used those lessons to create a whole new scene called Super Rock. We are talking about Peter Zaremba of The Fleshtones.

The Unaccounted Four, which was formed just for the occasion, played ALL garage rock and freakbeat favorites, and featured some of our favorite local musicians and personalities…

For his part, Peter Zaremba played a wide variety of garage rock-styled records from Ohio, Detroit, Canada and France. In keeping with the “cover song” theme of the night, he played the fine version of “The Green Slime” by The Fuzztones! Also, our pal Carlos Grasso was in town. Mr. Grasso is a hip video director who we first met when he was the producer of the MTV program The Cutting Edge back in the eighties. At one point, Mr. Grasso grabbed the official Boogaloo Bag camera and took some art shots of Peter Z and The Boog as they spun records and goofed off.
