I’ve become intrigued by The Remains, a ’60s group that opened for the Beatles, appeared on Ed Sullivan, put out one album and then broke up.
There’s a Remains documentary called America’s Lost Band that I would love to see. Meanwhile, I’m definitely getting Ticket to Ride, a book about that 1966 tour with the Beatles, by Remains member Barry Tashian. If you want to check out one of the band’s songs, go to The Remains website and click “listen now.” Enjoy! Just don’t get the Remains confused with “cremains.” Cremains are something else entirely.

Very cool – will check them out, WB! Hope you’re having a fab weekend 🙂
I love the word cremains, weird as that sounds.
I love bands like this. And if they sound garage-y, that’s even better.
I had no idea what cremains were before now. You learn something new everyday.
I will def check them out.
Ok why have I never seen your blog before, I’m always late. Now that I’m broke I find your jewelry. 🙁

love the garage band boys.
My hubby likes these guys. Do you have the “Nuggets” box sets? If you like the garage sound, go buy some Nuggets!
Their sound is a bit edgy…I am liking them.

Ooh I love The Remains, I’ve got some of their music somewhere amongst my stash of 60s gems. I need to watch that documentary!
Uh…what? How is a band this cool possibly a secret? Why were the 60's so &&#%%#&* AWESOME!!!

I’ve been on a crazy Beatles kick lately. I will check these guys out if they’re on iTunes.
Just came across your post about the Remains and the new documentary about them. I was the sound mixer on the movie. So far, it’s been shown at festivals in Boston and England. It’s just been accepted in to four more festivals in Chicago, Nashville, New Orleans and New England. Hopefully, we’ll get a DVD release. They’re great guys and play some unbelievable rock and roll.
Great to hear from you, CKman. I wish the Remains and you much success!
