“Of all the Nuggetarian bands that came to psychedelic light in the Gar Age, The Seeds brought rock back to its most hypnotic elementals,” proclaimed writer, musician, Patti Smith group member, and Nuggets box compiler/producer, Lenny Kaye in March 2015. “This docu-drama provides a heartfelt insight into the band’s inner universe, their time and place, a behind-the-scenarios look at a group whose impact would resonate throughout the coming of punk and beyond.

A bit about Vicky and the Vengents:
Born in the Summer of 2008, Vicky and the Vengents are a self-proclaimed “Maltshop Punk” group hailing from sunny Southern California.
With two full-lengths and a single under their belt, their latest bundle of tunes can be found under the Burger/Wiener Records banner!
On their newest single, entitled You Used To Be My Baby, Vicky and the gang flex their genre-bending ways on three new tunes resulting in some “Punk Wop” nuggets that really show off the groups’ love for the Ramones, Doo Wop, and those wonderful 60’s girl groups.
‘You Used To Be My Baby’ was released on Wiener/Burger Records on May 27th.
