I caught this band The Sparkomatics about a month back open for the Big Fat Combo to virtually an empty room at the Outer Space in Hamden, Connecticut. I went on an invite from a friend at work who knew guys in the BFC. And the club was about a five minute drive from my house. I have never been to this venue but understand its quite hip and gets a lot of bands come through.
The band ran through a set of great 60s Garage Rock classics while throwing in a couple originals. The band was a bit rough around the edges but had a fun time.
This single “Draggin’ Me Down” captures a good old basement Rock’n’Roll band doing their thing. I look forward to hearing more.
