The Hypstrz were a Garage Rock band that started in the late 1970s by the Batsons and made one of Minnesota's top five LPs of all-time (“Hypstrization” 1980 Voxx Records, reissued on wax a few years ago). Their self-titled 7″ EP from 1979 on Bogus Records was my portal into '60s garage rock, thanks to the mail man at my parents’ house at the time. I had an early version of a boombox in 1980 and had taped Mike Reiter’s copy of the EP onto a cassette. As I was walking home from high school one day blaring the EP, the mail man came running up to me with an excited look & expression: "THAT SONG! THAT SONG was done a long time ago by a local band called THE LITTER!" I explained to him that THIS version was done by a new local band called The Hypstrz; we proceeded to turn each other onto two unknown local bands from two different eras. Rick the mail man (thanks, wherever you are!) made me cassettes of The C.A. Quintet, The Litter, T.C. Atlantic, and a few local 1960s garage rock singles, with KDWB jingles thrown in between songs for local flavor. He changed my life, and so did The Hypstrz that day. - GJG Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
