Corpus Christie, Texas 1967 – the town is a hotbed for young music groups. One of the local bands to cause attention are The Zulus. They are playing local gigs, have a certain popularity and a record deal is overdue. Carl Becker, co–owner of J–Beck Records, who had already managed the Zakary Thaks, offers the band a contract for his newly established Cee–Bee Label. On Beckers suggestion, the band changes their name to LIBERTY BELL and in 1967 their debut 45 „The Nazz Are Blue“ b/w „Big Boss Men“ gets released. The name Liberty Bell is indissoluble wedded with other self penned devasting garage recordings such as „That’s How It Will Be“, „For What You Lack“ or the unreleased „I Can See“.
In 1968 lead singer Ronnie Tanner leaves the band and gets replaced by former Zakary Thaks lead singer Chris Gerniottis. The change in line–up and the arising spirit of time gives a more psychedelic edge to the bands sound and leads to another load of classic Gerniottis written scorching fuzz recordings such as „Reality Is The Only Answer“, „Recognition“ or „Look For Tomorrow“. For the first time in 25 years, the music of the Liberty Bell is available again on vinyl. Brillant Texas–Garage–Punk!.
