(No label)
Rite # 15289/15290

15289 - You’ve Got Another Thing Coming (wr G.Reiter)
15290 ~Cyascoid (L.Burch)

Richland, Washington garage from 1965.

"You’ve Got Another Thing Coming" was compiled on Quagmire Vol. 8: A Further Observance of Sixties Punk.

Probably not related to any of all others bands of the same name. I don't have the title of the flip side. The only tiny bit of information that I can find is courtesy of the Pacific Northwest Bands discography (1954 - 1979 and their later bands 1980 to Present :
Bob Bissell, a member of the Pharos, says :

About 1965, the first Tri-CIties battle of the bands was held in Columbia Park. I played in the group the Pharos from Kennewick, Washington and it was held on three flat bed trucks at the east end of the park. Also in the event were the Pastels from Pasco and the Esquires from Richland.

Three other sixties labels from Richland, Washington, had also their records pressed by RITE :
  • Westland
  • Big Sound
  • Rich Tone
