? And The Mysterians
Guy Lochhead, 20/05/10
“The world’s greatest garage band”. Best known for their huge 1966 hit ’96 Tears’, the band was fronted by the mysterious Question Mark, who wore sunglasses all the time, claimed he was from Mars, had lived with dinosaurs, and legally changed his name to ‘?’. They faded into obscurity after a few attempts at following such a popular single. They maintain a huge garage band fanbase. ?’s house burned down recently, killing many of his pets. The Mysterians’ website is now selling a special record to raise funds to re-house ? and his family. If I felt like I wanted to include this band, I would definitely choose to incorporate that record, but I don’t.
