It is indeed. What's more, if you're sufficiently interested in this genre to want to hear some of the more lo-fi examples that didn't get picked up on by any of the majors at the time, I'd have to elaborate on George Brigman's brilliant "Jungle Rot", (already listed, but not described, by achuma) and add "Microminiature Love" by the Michael Yonkers Band.

Both have somewhat of a Blue Cheer/Stooges/Groundhogs vibe - the latter being particularly apparent on the George Brigman album - but were both recorded cheaply and - in the case of "Jungle Rot"- self-released, whilst "Microminiature Love" didn't get an official release until the noughties (on SubPop) despite having been recorded in 1968.

In fact, I think the subterranean territory of home releases that didn't get widely distrubuted until decades later probably deserves a seperate thread, but I'm too busy to start one right now. One day...
