The Tamrons, and the Huns, Concord, NC

In honor of some friends of mine from Concord, NC, here's a double-shot of music from the Concord area. Despite being smaller than nearby Charlotte, the town of Concord had a thriving music scene. Several bands emerged from Concord High School,  and several venues popped up to cater to both local and regional acts.

Both the Tamrons and the Huns recorded singles in 1966 for the Pyramid label. Pyramid was owned by Arthur Smith, and operated out of Greensboro, NC. Many of the Pyramid acts recorded at Arthur Smith Studios, in Charlotte. The Tamrons recorded "Wild Man" at Arthur Smith, and there's a good chance that the Huns recorded "Shakedown" there, as well.

You can read more about the Concord scene, and the real Battle Of The Bands that almost happened between the Tamrons and Huns, in There Was A Time. Until then, enjoy these two slices on '60s Garage Rock, Concord style.
