"Skeletons in the Garage" is an 18-song retrospective from a less-than-fashionable psychedelic band who stake a claim in territory tread by garage-rock labels like Estrus and groups like Orlando's The Hate Bombs. Pennsylvania's The Original Sins play the music of bandleader John Terlesky when they aren't dissembling "Help Me Rhonda" or Wilson Pickett's "Making Time."

Terlesky and company don't indulge all their fuzzbox and organ fetishes on every song. "The Other Day" tugs the heartstrings with strummed guitar and female backing vocals as it touches on lost friendship and acid trips. Outtakes, B-sides and remixes from The Original Sins' 12-year career steer clear of Terlesky's side project, Brother J.T. -- with the exception of "Atom Bomb Song."

The Original Sins' homage to volume and distortion is a rare opportunity to explore the development of a band that may soon to be lost to garage-rock history.
