    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:

    A San Francisco-based heavy rock group who specialised in high volume rock. They were popular around the Bay Area but never caught on nationally or internationally. Their debut album is best remembered for its heavy electrified version of Eddie Cochran's Summertime Blues, which became a No. 14 U.S. hit in the summer of 1968. It also contained a powerful version of Rock Me Baby and four other compositions all played with characteristic energy and volume. For many their second album with Paul Whaley's excellent heavy rock drumming was their best, but Original Human Being was their most psychedelic, particularly on songs like Babaji. The band operated originally between 1967-71 but reformed in 1975, 1978 and 1985. On the final occasion they recorded an album comprised of new recordings and reworks of old classics like Summertime Blues, Babylon, Parchment Farm and Out Of Focus.

    Prior to Blue Cheer, Paul Whaley's phenomenal drumming had ventured forth with The Oxford Circle, whose stunning 45 pointed towards the sonic-assault territory that Blue Cheer would claim. Whaley's fellow pioneers included pre-Kak members Dehner Patten and Gary Yoder (the latter would feature in the 1970 Blue Cheer line-up). Whaley's circle of influence did not end there. He inspired cousin Randy Hammon to start his own garage band ventures, whose trail led to the Savage Resurrection. Dick Peterson had recorded a brace of 45s before Blue Cheer - with brother Jerri and Danny Mihm, later of the Flamin' Groovies, in Sacramento's Group "B".

    Band offshots included Pilot (with Bruce and Leigh Stephens, Micky Waller and Martin Quittenton (ex Steamhamer)), Silver Metre and Mint Tattoo. After Pilot, Bruce Stephens recorded two solo albums: Bruce Stephens (World ) 1978 and Watch That First Step (Strawberry ) 1981.

    Leigh Stephens also recorded a solo album entitled Red Weather (Phillips PHS 600.294) 1969 R1. It's an excellent psychedelic record in the vein of Quicksilver and was recorded at London's Trident studios with help of such notables as Nicky Hopkins, Kevin Westlake, Micky Waller and Eric Albrona. It also had a U.K. release (Philips SBL 7897) 1969 R2, and has recently been counterfeited on CD. Leigh also recorded a rare promo-only 45, Red Weather/Saki Zwadoo (Philips 40628) 1969, which may have been a promotional-only release and had a non-album 'B' side. He recorded a second solo album in 1971, And A Cast Of Thousands (Philips / Charisma CAS 1040), however, despite a cover of Jumpin' Jack Flash it is marred by too many background singers and horns.

    Norman Mayell had previously played with Sopwith Camel.
