    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:

    This band hailed from Fresno, California. Goodbye, an average folk-punk effort. The debut 45 is a catchy beat-folk-rocker notable for crisp upfront percussion, backed with a melodic beat ballad with some barely audible fuzz.

    Beat Rocket's retrospective album contains one side of (7) studio tracks (3 unreleased) plus 7 live tracks preserved by the band's #1 fan Neil Hopper. The studio material is predominantly Invasion-inspired folk-rock, with a strong Searchers/Beau Brummels influence, occasionally topped off with fuzz. The live material includes their own Goodbye and I'll Make It Up To You, and shows off the band in meaner and rockier mood - especially on a great version of the Animals' Don't Bring Me Down, a rockin' Train Kept A Rollin', and a bluesy take of Baby Please Don't Go.

    Samuelian's story and Hoppers' photos, tied up neatly by Jud Cost's notes, round off a fine package.

    Rhinoceros ~ 1968 ~ Rhinoceros
    genre: heavy soul
    country: us
    quality: mp3 (256k, scans)
    time: 35'51"  size: 67 mb
     
    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    Assembled by Doors/Love producer Paul Rothschild, this Los Angeles outfit was largely composed of ex-members of well known bands and is hence regarded as one of the first 'supergroups'. In fact they evolved out of Elektra Records Project Supergroup, formed between November '67 and February '68. Danny Weis and Jerry Penrod were from the Iron Butterfly, Michael Fonfara the Electric Flag, Billy Mundi the Mothers Of Invention, and Doug Hastings the Daily Flash and (briefly) the Buffalo Springfield.
    As a result of this pedigree and some strong early live performances, expectations amongst the LA cognoscenti were high and Elektra quickly financed the band to the tune of $80,000 (big money in 1968). Recorded in live takes, their debut album garnered favourable reviews in the music press at the time, but tends to get slagged off today as a fairly nondescript blend of blues/jazz/funk/gospel-tinged late '60s rock. One short catchy instrumental Apricot Brandy was a minor hit single, later used by the BBC as a Radio One programme-link. After this debut however, things started to go downhill.
    Jerry Penrod left soon after to be briefly replaced by Danny Weis's brother, Steve, and finally by Peter Hodgson. In fact Hodgson had been the original bass player, but was only with the initial line-up briefly.
    Their second album met with a muted commercial and critical response and Mundi, Gerber, and Hastings soon quit (Gerber releasing a solo album in 1971 on Shelter records.)

    Red Crayola ~ 1967 ~ the Parable of Arable Lands + 1968 ~ God Bless the Red Krayola & All Who Sail on It
    genre: psych

    time: 1:17'09"  size: 376 mb
    misc.: 1998
     
    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    Red Crayola were established in Houston in September 1966. line-up 'A' was very much embryonic. They began playing straight rock numbers like Hey Joe but by December 1966 they had developed the improvised music style - the Freeform Freak-out - that they are best remembered for. All interested parties were invited to perform in their shows and in effect a companion group (known as The Familiar Ugly) was established. When International Artists invited Thompson, Barthelme and Cunningham to record their debut album in March 1967 The Familiar Ugly were featured in the Freeform Freak-outs between each track. Quite aside from the Freak-outs the album included some very strange material - formless and improvised the psychedelia of tracks like Hurricane Fighter Plane (which Roky Erickson played organ on), Transparent Radiation (which Roky played harmonica on) and Pink Stainless Tail was very different to that of other texan bands of the era. On stage, too, the Red Crayola were very much an acquired taste. Lacking natural rhythms and structure their music was practically impossible to dance to. They were once paid ten dollars (to split three ways) and asked to leave a gig at the New Orleans House after 20 minutes! They were, however, invited to play at the Berkeley Folk Festival in the summer of 1967. Once again their performance did not go down well and the band fell apart with Thompson spending time in New York and Los Angeles. One of their live performances was released in the nineties as Coconut Hotel, but it isn't recommended unless you're into avant garde/ambient noises.

    ProgArchives:
    This early 70's Belgian trio is one of the best-kept secrets from Belgium, but I am determined to shed a bit more light on them. This instrumental KB-led trio is completely different from the usual ELP clichés that one might have. They took their name from the 10AM and 2PM breaks that allow kids to roam and play on the school grounds. Jean-Jacques Falaise is clearly the leader of the trio and his KB abilities shine throughout their two albums, but he also plays a competent guitar. Francis Lonneux is the drummer and Jean-Paul Vanden Bossche is the bassist and clearly these guys had decided to include humour in their music, something that is quite common among Belgian bands. As mentioned before the music is not like ELP, but instead draws heavily from Jazz, classics but also many different other sources.
    Their self-titled debut (71) has a superb sleeve artwork depicting human bodies falling through giants KB scales and consist of just six tracks, while the second album Music Or Not Music (72) holds 15 of them, but both albums have a similar feel not far away from Canterbury, jazz-rock and symphonic prog.

    Both albums are excellent soft rock with touches of psychedelia, particularly the first one, which is beginning to become a minor collectable.
