Too Much Rock Singles Series Vol 2: Rev Gusto - Still There

Too Much Rock recently released its second volume in its 45 RPM singles series (the first was Landlocked from Schwervon!Bandcamp link). The newest single is from garage pop band Rev Gusto, Still There, released on Record Store Day. It features the title track and a cover of Graham Parker’s “Local Girls.” “Still There” is a fuzzy jam infused with the band’s cool ‘60s California pop style. On the B-side, frontman Jerry Frederick channels Parker’s vocal work, while the band provides an excellent take on the cover.
Too Much Rock is the project of photographer/writer/music enthusiast Sid Sowder; the goal of the singles series is to “marry great songs with great bands all for the love of vinyl.” Each one contains an original song with a cover chosen by TMR. 500 limited edition copies are pressed and given to each band.
Keep up with Sowder at to find out about what shows he’s seeing, and to be updated on the next single in the mix!
“Still There” was recorded with Joel Nanos at Element Recording, and “Local Girls” was recorded with Pat Tomek at Largely Studios. Both songs were mastered by Nanos. The album is also available at Mills Record Company, Vinyl Renaissance, and Love Garden Sounds.
