Question Mark & The Mysterians @ the Bell House
Question Mark & The Mysterians

ABKCO Records, in conjuction with Real Gone Music, is proud to present the two albums released by Question Mark & the Mysterians on the Cameo label, pressed on 180-gram vinyl with the original artwork intact! Hailing from Saginaw, Michigan, this group of Mexican-American teenagers will forever be anointed as the garage band's garage band with all the bonafides collectors of '60s cool cherish--the name, derived from a Japanese horror film; the sound, an insistent, three chord beat powered by that unmistakable Vox organ tone; and, of course, the sunglasses-shod Question Mark himself, who claims to have been born on Mars and lived among the dinosaurs in a past life. Though their signature hit, "96 Tears," ranks as one of the most recognizable and beloved songs of the '60s, their two original albums have never come out on LP in this country since their original re- lease...till now!

• The Two Original Albums Released by the Legendary Garage Band on the Cameo Label

• Reissued on 180-Gram Vinyl, Remastered from the Original Tape Sources by Bob Ludwig and Lacquer Cutting by Carl Rowatti of TruTone Mastering

• Mastered at 45 rpm for Maximum Fidelity.

• First Time Available on LP in America Since Their Original LP Release

"96 Tears" and "action" are available, as of 11/15, via Real Gone Music

Question Mark & The Mysterians, who are probably best known for their classic "96 Tears", headlined the third night of the Norton Records 25th Anniversary at the Bell House on Saturday (11/12). Pictures and a video from their set are in this post and it all continues below...

That's not a picture of Question Mark on the Main page under the title 'Question Mark & The Mysterians @ the Bell House'.

That is a picture of La La Brooks of the Crystals who came out as a special guest for one song.

Forget Chad Ochocinco or that Metta World Peace bullshit, changing your name to Question Mark (or just ?) is where it's at!

I think that was the caption for the full set, not that specific picture.

Too bad ABKCO Records hasn't and isn't paying Que and M a dime of the money from these records....
Que, as you said yourself, you ARE the template for being cool ... I am learning from you how not to become a victim <3
