The Standells are a Los Angeles punk/garage rock group that was formed in 1962. The original line-up was Larry Tamblyn (organ/vocals), Tony Valentino (guitar), Gary Lane (bass) and Gary Leeds (drums). Leeds was later replaced by former Mouseketeer Dick Dodd, who not only played drums but also handled lead vocal chores as well.

The band began its career doing gigs in various L.A. clubs in the early 1960s. They recorded albums and singles for such labels as Liberty, Vee Jay and MGM, and popped up in the silly Get Yourself a College Girl (1964). Read more...
