New England Teen Spotlight: And the winner is...

The legendary Executive Committee of On The Flip-Side has meticulously gone through the 10 nominations for "the best 1960s garage record out of New England" and have come to a unanimous decision.

The winner is Connecticut's The Squires with their double sided gem on Atco Records, Going All The Way/Go Ahead. That can be heard here. Congratulations go out to Michael Boyeau who composed both sides, sings lead and plays drums.

Here are the top five finalists:

1. The Squires - Going All The Way
2. The Bold - Gotta Get Some
3. The Others - I Can’t Stand This Love Goodbye
4. The Shames - My World Is Upside Down
5. The Rockin’ Ramrods - She Lied

The Squires will now move on to the next round as they await their counterparts from other parts of the country.

Next up in our regional Battle of The Bands will be the states of New York and New Jersey. Until then, click dreamy pic below (which, contrary to public opinion, is NOT the much vaunted Executive Committee of On The Flip-Side relaxing at our offices high atop Mount Garagemore) to "like" us on Facebook. Yep, you can get On The Flip-Side right there in your news feed.
Until next time, we'll see you On The Flip-Side!
