The Mosquitos

Best known to international garage fans for “Darn Well”, the lead track on ROIR’s 1985 Garage Sale tape, the group was more geared towards killer hooks and pop melodies.
In ’86, their EP’s title track was turned into a US Top 20 hit by The Monkees. Darlings of NYC’s legendary 80s garage scene, they packed the city’s biggest clubs.
Here we find every studio recording they ever did: demo tapes from 1982 and 1983, a home PortaStudio demo, better mixes of their 1985 EP, and never-before released studio sessions. Exclusive artwork comes with two page insert, plus digital download.
