Garage rock and those who park in that garage have come and gone, blasting out in full revival mode here, exacting its influence there. It's no longer a mop-top throwback; hasn't been for years. Within its ebb and flow remains one constant: The Fleshtones, baby. I first caught the band at Scorgies and it changed my life. With a discography that goes back to cassette-only release days, the band just rolled out its newest record, "Wheel of Talent," in February on Yep Roc Records. It's more of the organ and guitar-driven drive and mayhem we've all come to love. This NYC powerhouse promises and delivers. It's borderline chaos and a goddamn riot. One of the most righteous live bands ever.
The Fleshtones play Thursday March 6, 9 p.m., at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. $12-$15. abilenebarandlounge.com.
