The Defectors care!
- For girls. For cars. For cigarettes and beer and fuzzed out rock'n'roll...

Having heard their share of 60's next-door-garage-hero records, they have made it a mission in life to take that mixture of innocense and irreverence into the 21st century.

Be sure to catch them if you care, too...
