The Remains

A strong contender for the finest overlooked American band of the mid-'60s, the Remains (led by Barry Tashian) were the most notable Boston group of the era. But they never broke out nationally, despite signing to Epic and copping an opening slot on the Beatles' final American tour in 1966. Sometimes described as a garage band, that designation isn't at all accurate; the Remains shared the same British Invasion influences as many American teen acts, but had a lot of professional finesse to their straight-ahead attack and sharp songwriting, sometimes sounding like a fusion of the Beatles and the Zombies with their energetic harmonies and guitar-electric keyboard blend.

Four fine singles for Epic found little action outside of the Northeast. Frustrated by the disparity they perceived between their studio work and their furious live show, they cut an audition tape for Capitol, although no offer from the label was forthcoming (the session was issued for collectors many years later). An uneven but solid debut album for Epic was released near the end of 1966, but by that time, the Remains were breaking up, dispirited by the stalemate in which their career seemed to have been mired. Remains drummer N.D. Smart II played with Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris; Tashian also played with Harris, and today is a Nashville-based country-folk musician, often recording as a duo with his wife, Holly.

However, despite the various musical activities occupying the bandmembers over the years, Barry & the Remains reunited for the first time in more than two decades when they played at the Mod Fest in Spain in August 1998. Inspired by a tape of Spanish rock bands covering tunes by the Remains that he was given by a promoter of the event, Tashian subsequently considered additional activity by the group -- and in fact, in 2002 the re-formed Remains issued a brand-new long-player, Movin' On. In April 2010 the Remains released a new song, entitled "Monbo Time," to support 1960s Boston Red Sox pitcher Bill Monbouquette in his struggle with leukemia. ~ Richie Unterberger & Craig Harris, Rovi

They sound like a combination of Them with Van Morrison on the vocals and The Seeds. Just enough rawness and edge with some bluesy feeling
Go sloopy
Hang on Sloopy
pretty impressive credentials, too bad they didn't get more exposure. Great looking vintage guitars too !
Please tour; without doubt one of the best bands of this and any era.
like 'em
Like sushi, raw and apparently an acquired taste.
The Remains - a long-time favorite. They so rock. Don't be worried about what smaller minds have to say ...

Barry & the Remains---fr o m another lifetime! I saw these guys multiple times back in the good old days of youth in the greater Beantown area. This group was indeed a very popular venue in the Boston area and despite their local popularity they were overlooked and seriously under-rated at the time. Don't Look Back----grea t tune!
GREAT DRUMS....
Sloopy? -- Who knew?
It sounds like The Kinks, especially since it s originally a Kinks song. Good cover, but prefer The Kinks version.
sounds a little like Mick Jagger with a nasal cold, but awesome upbeat!

OK I have some questions. They toured with the Beatles in '66. What was that like? Were they in awe, and just glad to be in their shadow, or were they resentful of all the attention the Beatles were getting? I think Pete Best should field that question.
Just heard All Day and All of the Night by these guys -- totally great. I'd never heard of them before.
HORRIBLE?? Clean thy ears. Raw, high energy rock n roll. Good stuff
Every bar band in New England covered "Why do I Cry?"

Wow, haven't heard Sloopy in about 40 years.... =D

They are horrible, I love it. This is garage band stuff at it's best/worst. Reminds me of my lousy band. And we weren't this good. I love it.
