    Shag ~ 1969 ~ Shaggenre: heavy psych

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    From Milwaukee, Wisconsin this band were originally known as The Shags. On December 30th 1965 they appeared at the Milwaukee Auditorium amongst a dozen local outfits for the Milwaukee Sentinel Rock'n'Roll Revue. Captured on the lo-fi compilation LP of that name (Century 23214, 1966) is their version of the Stones' Get Off Of My Cloud. Their Stop And Listen was an above average punk song with a catchy guitar riff and lyrics that were indicative of the times: - "Everybody's goin'
    Everybody's tripping,
    Everybody tells you what you've been missing."

    Borderline (our Great Bible forever): Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    A garage band from Chicago, formed in 1964 by Warren Rodgers, Norm Gotsch and Wayne Pursell, who went to Prospect High School in Mt. Prospect, Illinois. They took their name after the UK act The Shadows, adding the "Knight" reference from their high school mascot and recruited Jim Sohns. Strongly influenced by the Brit-Invasion sounds, they even started a teen-club The Cellar, named in honour of The Cavern Club.
    The original line-up was discovered playing a showcase concert at the Cellar Club in Chicago's Arlington Heights which was being staged to attract talent spotters from record companies. Bill Traut and George Badonsky of Dunwich Records bit the bait and the band was signed up and went on to give this hitherto obscure label its major national success.
    Before the release of their debut 45, however, Wayne Pursell was replaced by Joe Kelley (ex-The Vectors) in September 1965, and in December, Norm Gotsch was also replaced by Jerry McGeorge.
    Their restrained version of Van Morrison's classic song with Them, Gloria, was chosen for their debut 45 because it was the band's showstopper. It made No. 10 in the charts, giving them their only Top 20 hit. Tom Schiffour's machine-gun drumming over the final choruses perhaps gave it a distinctive edge. By contrast the flip, Dark Side was a haunting melodic piece, in contrast to the bands other material... it turns out that this track was written by Wayne Pursell, but copyrighted in Warren Roger and Jim Sohns names, after Wayne had left the band. Shortly after the 45s release, Warren Rogers and Jerry McGeorge swapped bass/lead guitar roles.

    Seventh Wave ~ 1974 ~ Things to Comegenre: synth pop, prog related, psych related
    state: uk
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, covers, 517 mb)
    time: 79:18

    Seventh Wave was a British psychedelic and progressive rock duo formed in the mid-1970s.
    The band was formed by Ken Elliot (keyboards, vocals) and Kieran O'Connor (percussion), both of whom had been members of earlier progressive rock groups, Second Hand and Chillum.
    Produced by future Motörhead producer Neil Richmond, and signed to the UK based label, Gull, distributed by Motown in the US, together with other UK bands of the day such as If and Judas Priest, Seventh Wave released their first album, Things to Come, in 1974.
    Joined by other musicians, including Pete Lemer, Hugh Banton (organist of Van der Graaf Generator), Steve Cook, Brian Gould, Tony Elliott, Pepi Lemer, Rob Elliott, for their second album, Psi-Fi (1975), the band enjoyed a brief success, but broke up after the USA tour to promote that album. Kieran O'Connor continued to perform in blues-rock bands, but died in the 1980s. Ken Elliot went on to write the theme tunes to ITV's lunchtime news bulletin First Report and BBC2's Out of Court.

    the Seventh Dawn ~ 1976 ~ Sunrisegenre: folk, psych
    state: us
    quality: lossless (flac, cue, log, 296 mb)
    time: 52:17

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    The tracks comprising this Virginia album date from 1970 thru' 1976. It varies from very soft female-vocal 'folk-psych' to melodic keyboard dominated proggy-rock with flowing guitar. Nothing heavy at all about this quartet. File in the 'hippie-rock' genre because of its gently drifting feel and odes to nature (The Snail and Robin), not necessarily as a put-down.
    Their album was recorded as a project for an electronic music course at Virginia Commonwealth College. A second album called Dreams was recorded but not released. This was a more progressive effort.
    The band soldiered on until the early eighties, playing their farewell gig at a college for the deaf! ~ (Max Waller / Vernon Joynson / John Stanton)
