If you're a fan of garage rock (particularly of the San Francisco variety), then Sonny Smith, of Sonny & the Sunsets, is releasing a compilation you'll adore. I Need You Bad chronicles the San Fran garage rock scene as it exists today, and features many artists you already enjoy and some you'll be sure to fall in love with. Shannon & the Clams' Sharon Shaw provided the killer artwork for the compilation, which is due out on November 29th on Polyvinyl Records.

It will see a digital release as well as both cassette (limited to 300 copies) and slime green coloured vinyl (limited to 1000 copies). It's already available for pre-order over on Polyvinyl's website. More information on the compilation, including some hilarious descriptions of the songs on the it, can be found here.
