And now class, all together, what is the purpose of starting a garage band?
All: To pick up girls!
Correct. And if you want to attract cool babes and not geeky girls with orthopedic shoes and scabby elbows, what is the first important thing you need to do?
All: Choose a cool band name!
Granted, the members of Schibbinz were between the ages of 15 and 17 when "Livin' Free" was recorded--American kids who inexplicably recorded this in Argentina. Along with a local guitarist who went on to direct the Symphonic Orchestra of Cordoba. Or at least that's what comes up when I hit the "translate" button on this Garage Latino blog entry, for all I know it may actually say they were snacking on lead paint chips in the recording studio, which might account for band name, as well as why they did a cover version of the song only grandpas like, "Ghost Riders in the Sky".
