I think that this the only Garage Rock record that has been featured here that comes from New York, more specifically the borough of Queens. The Big Apple wasn't renowned for thrashy guitar music at this time, well until the Velvet Underground came on the scene.
White Ship was the final single by the terribly named "The Denims" and came out on the Mercury label. There is quite a psychedelic feel about the lyrics which is quite unusual for a record out of NYC at this time, 1966, when else.
