    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    Formed in Portland, Oregon in 1964 when Don Gallucci was forced to leave The Kingsmen because he was still in high school and unable to tour. Gallucei drafted in Bob Holden, a good friend of his, on drums and Holden brought with him Don McKinney, who had played sax with him in a band called The Imperials. With the bass and guitar slots filled by Dave Childs and (ex-Paul Revere & The Raiders) Pierre Oulette, The Goodtimes started out playing at The Chase in Portland, Oregon but soon became a popular regional attraction. Their debut recording in 1964 was Turn On Song, an instrumental which featured McKinney's wailing sax and Oulette's superb guitar. It became a big regional hit. However, in 1965 Oulette left to join Aesop and The Fables and was replaced by Jim Valley on guitar. As well as being one of the region's finest guitarists he was a talented songwriter and his songwriting opened up new opportunities for the group. For example, he wrote Little Sally Tease for the band, which became a gigantic regional hit and was recorded by several national acts such as The Standells and The Kingsmen. The 45 was picked up by Dunhill and the band went to L.A. to record Sweets For My Sweet and Mary Mae with P.F. Sloan and Steve Berry handling the arrangements. Whilst there they appeared on several Top TV shows. Indeed L.A. became their base until their demise.

    On New Years Day, 1966, they shared the bill with Mr. Lucky and The Gamblers at Portland's Oriental Theatre and Don and the lads were so impressed they helped get them a record deal with Jerry Dennon's Panorama label and wrote and produced a couple of songs for them.Sweets For My Sweet went on to become a huge hit in the Northwest, but whilst they were working on a new single, Blue Turns To Grey Jim Valley left to join Paul Revere and The Raiders, with whom in late 1966 they appeared as regulars on 'Where The Action Is'. They also signed for Epic in 1966 bringing them two national hits, I Could Be So Good To You and Happy And Me in 1967. Just when they seemed to be at the pinnacle of their career their world fell in around them - 'Where The Action Is' was cancelled, two members quit and their next single bombed. By 1968 the band had fallen apart. Their most successful album, in commercial terms, had been So Good, which rose to No 109 in the U.S. charts. Produced by Jack Nitzsche and Stu Phillips, it's very pop oriented, with several english covers (Troggs' With A Girl Like You, Beatles's Good Day Sunshine andn Spencer Davis' Gimme Somme Lovin'), two Nitzsche selections and four Ron Overman compositions. It hasn't aged well and sounds a bit naive now.
    Newman had earlier played in The Liberty Party and Galluci, Newman and Hawks went on to form Touch, an acid rock outfit. Don McKinney went into personnel management and record production and Bob Holden became a recording engineer. Later still Galluci became a producer/engineer for Elektra records. Don Galluci was last reported working in Real Estate, Ron Overman is a pastor in Arkansas, Jim Valley works in education with gifted children, Dave Child is a machinist, Pete Oulefte works in advertising, Charlie Coe (who had joined them from Paul Revere and The Raiders) is in food sales, Joey Newman is a studio musician and has also recorded two gospel albums, Jeff Hawks is a hair stylist in L.A. and Bob Holden works as a recording engineer in Seattle. Interestingly, McKinney, Child and Holden are all active with Christian music in some way and Galluci is active in the Christian ministry. ~ (Vernon Joynson / Max Waller / Stephane Rebeschini)
