Dreams Fantasies & Nighmares:
This progressive blues outfit operated out of Toronto, Ontario, between 1968-70. They were formed when Mike McKenna placed an advert in a local paper announcing that he wanted to start a blues band. Guitar and banjo player Joe Mendelson answered the ad and became the band's creative member writing all their original material. Nolasco and Harrison were recruited on drums and bass respectively to complement Mendelson's vocals and McKenna's driving guitar. The original bassist was Denny Gerrard, formerly of The Paupers, but he left after just three months.
McKenna had previously played with Luke and The Apostles (1963) and The Ugly Ducklings (1967-68).
Having established themselves in Toronto, Ontario, the band switched bases to England in 1968, where they aroused quite a lot of interest. Whilst there, they toured several European countries and at the Utrecht Pop Festival in Holland were the only band to receive a standing ovation.
They recorded their album Stink during their stay in England and upon their return to Canada in 1969 enjoyed a Top 50 hit with Better Watch Out, which was culled from the album. The inclusion of another cut, T.B. Blues, on the budget-priced Son Of Gutbucket sampler over in England, introduced their blues-rock to a much wider audience.
In mid-1971 they shortened their name to Mainline and further details of their career appear in that entry.
