Best garage-rock cran (2008)

J.D. MARTIGNON

KFamous Midnight Records entrepreneur J.D. MARTIGNON, of the cigarettes and rattail, has been all up on New York garage since the late 1970s, and does not hesitate to get all Frenchman-bitchy on your ass (a good thing, since he's fighting a legal battle with the federal government over a totally bullshit charge). Try to visit him in person—his storefront space is now closed, but he's still selling his obscure records—and find out for yourself.
