* Prefix catches up with Daniel Pujol and Jonas Stein to talk about Turbo Time Records, which released its first two records last week, by PUJOL and Turbo Fruits, naturally. I'm not sure why they say "garage scene" when they mean "house show scene," but I suppose the former sounds snappier and aligns with the equally dubious term "garage rock," which is almost as descriptive, stripped of context, as "house-show rock." Anyway:

The connecting tissue for Turbo Time, Stein and Pujol, of course, is Nashville, a city whose rock community, according to Stein, resembles the Detroit's in the 1960s, the seedbed for bands like MC5 and the Stooges. A thriving garage scene has emerged in the city in recent years, buoyed by labels like White’s Third Man and Infinity Cat, where Pujol has recorded next to bands like JEFF the Brotherhood, Natural Child and Heavy Cream. Like any small punk scene, Nashville's is close-knit. “We’re all family and in bands with each other,” Stein says.
