17. Hypnos 69 - The Great Work

Over the past 15 years, Hypnos 69 acquired a loyal following wherever they appeared live and one of the band's greatest thrills to date has been the number of venues which immediately request their return and the new fans who instantly fall in love with the band. Hypnos 69 played hundreds of gigs in Belgium and around, visited some of Europe's finest rock clubs and outdoor & indoor rock festivals.

Legacy tells the tale of the Apple of Eden, the Philosophers Stone, the Egyptian mfkt, or the Biblical Manna and how it got lost on the Dark Rivers of Time. Symbolic for this journey are the writings of Isaac Newton and the intriguing insight he had on the Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus. The artwork by Italian graphic artists Malleus illustrates the concept of the Apple and the Snake of Eden, the oldest reference to Hermeticism and ancient Alchemy and our legacy of a higher knowledge.

24. The Chocolate Watch Band - I Don't Need No Doctor

The Chocolate Watch Band is an American garage rock band that was based in San Jose, California. The band, formed in 1965, went through several lineup changes during its existence, but developed a sound heavily influenced by The Small Faces & The Rolling Stones. Combining typical psychedelic and garage rock components, the band's sound was marked by David Aguilar's lead vocals, and experimental intensity of an early protopunk band. The band's rebellious musical posture, combine with psychedelic-inspired guitar distortions and keyboards, made them one of the harder-edged groups of the period. And the name originated from: Bob Anderson & Lee Donnelly, close friends of Jo Kemling who he grew up with.

I Don't Need No Doctor is on their 1969 LP One Step Beyond was later covered by New Riders and the Purple Sage in 1972 and peaked at #73 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

26. The Chocolate Tunnel - Ostrich People

The Chocolate Tunnel from Bakersfield, CA. Very Little is known about this band. In 1967, they released the single “The Highly Successful Young Rupert White”/“Ostrich People.” “The Highly Successful Rupert White” features tambourine flourishes and an organ break along with trippy vocals. “Ostrich People” is a phenomenal piece of psych music, with its bass heavy production and what sounds like a backwards string mix. The song also features trippy vocals and some fantastic fuzz guitar at the end of the song. Both songs are written by Kenny Johnson and Jerry Ritchie, and Bob Hopps is credited on the A-side. The single was released on the small In-Sound label. Enough copies were sold that the single was later released on Era Records, a label that was mostly known for releasing soul 45s.

Label: Era Records ‎3185 45 RPM
Released: 1967

   
27. The Endd - Out Of My Hands

From Sea Port, Indiana 1966.This was their first release after adding the extra "D" to the endd of their name, to help distinguish them from all the other groups with the same name. Perhaps a little forethought before they chose the name in the first place might have saved them some trouble? They were a great garage band in any event. "Project Blue" is mid-fast garage with guitar, bass and fuzz throughout. The other side is fairly heavy, mid-tempo rock with guitar, a fuzz riff, and a fuzz break.

Label: Seascape Records ‎SS-501 45 RPM
Released: 1966

   
28. The Groupies - Hog (I'm A Hog For You Baby)

At one time, the Groupies were the number two band in New York --bad boys with a hard musical edge. This is unusual because the Groupies did not have a hit record. Their reputation was built solely on their live performances. Everybody figured they had a big career ahead, but the Groupies kept screwing up. They were only sixteen or seventeen and had no handle on responsibility. Hog (I'm A Hog For You Baby) written by Mike Stoller and Jerry Leiber released 1966.

Label: ATCO Records ‎45-6393 45 RPM
Released: January 1966

From the album: The Open Mind
Released: July 1969

   
   
32. Weird Owl - Like 100.000 Sunsets

Formed in 2004, Brooklyn's Weird Owl have a sound that falls somewhere between the overblown excursions of fellow Brooklynites Oneida and the spacy, exploratory riffing of Black Mountain. The band has carved out a sound of its own, combining the influence of psych rock pioneers 13th Floor Elevators and the introspective vocal style of Neil Young. The result is a sound that layers warm fuzz and laconic, swirling synthesizers to create neo-psych that manages to feel experimental while harking back to a time when album-oriented rock was king and monolithic riffs roamed the Earth. In February of 2009 Weird Owl released Ever the Silver Cord Be Loosed on TeePee Records. Two years later the band returned with Build Your Beast a Fire, a slow-burning set recorded with Dinosaur Jr. producer Justin Pizzoferrato. For 2013's mini album Healing, Weird Owl adopted a lighter, more spacious approach, as well as a new label (A Recordings, the imprint of Brian Jonestown Massacre's Anton Newcombe). Continuing with their gentler psych approach, they returned in 2015 with the full-length Interstellar Skeletal.

Released: February 12, 2007

   
   
   
   
   

Tunes on the Horizon
The Enfields - I'm For Things You Do

The Enfields were an American garage rock and psychedelic band from Wilmington, Delaware who were active in the 1960s. They were led by guitarist and songwriter Ted Munda, and their style was highly influenced by the British Invasion and folk rock.

Label: Richie 670 45 RPM
Released: May 1966

   
Danny and the Counts - Ode To The Wind

Both sides of the 45 have a lo-fi sound (not uncommon for garage bands of course and often prized!). The recordings were made in one take for $75 in a downtown El Paso studio. The fee paid for an hour of studio time with a less than enthusiastic audio engineer and a master tape of the songs at the end.

‘Ode To The Wind’ is a moody and brooding down-tempo number with a plaintive melody and judicious use of fuzz guitar.

The single was released in August 1966 on the Coronado label and was the band’s second release. By the way, the ‘For Your Love’ on their debut is in fact a ballad rather a cover of the The Yardbirds’ classic.

Label: Coronado 136 45 RPM
Released: August 1966

 

   
The Open Mind - Cast A Spell

The Open Mind was an English psychedelic rock band formed in London, and active in the 1960s and 1970s.

The Alarm Clocks - No Reason To Complain

Formed in 1965 in Parma, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, The Alarm Clocks really seemed to exemplify the qualities and characteristics of the archetypal suburban 60s Garage Punk group. The original three members bassist and vocalist "Mike Pierce", guitarist "Bruce Boehm" and drummer "Bill Schwark" were students at Parma Senior High School when they started playing together as "The Alarm Clocks" in 1965.

The single "Yeah! / "No Reason To Complain" (Awake Records 107, 1966) were pressed in 200 copies. "The Alarm Clocks" were essentially a cover band with soft spots for "The Rolling Stones" and "The Kinks".

Label: Awake Records 107 45 RPM
Released: 1966

   
The Cave Men - It's Trash

These particular Cave Men (easy to distinguish from other 60s bands of the same name as they separated the two words rather than adopting the more common Cavemen) were from Key West, Florida. Their one moment of vinyl glory came out on the Chelle label in August 1966, tucked away on the b-side of a ballad.

From the moment the words “It’s trash” are shrieked out at the start of the song you know you are in safe hands. The heavy use of reverb and echo on the vocals certainly gives the singer an even more demented quality, backed by raw fuzz chords that are later augmented by a simple two-note figure on guitar. There is a stinging guitar break, and the whole thing is topped off with a short rave-up finish. It’s a monster and no mistake!

Label: Chelle PH 148B 45RPM
Released: August 1966

   
The Sacred Mushroom - Catatonic Lover

The Sacred Mushroom was a blues rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio, active in the late 1960s. The band was focused on guitarist, singer and songwriter Larry Goshorn and his brother, vocalist Danny. They recorded one album in 1969 which included original material and the covers of T-Bone Walker's "Mean Old World" and Ray Davies' "I'm Not Like Everybody Else". Larry Goshorn later joined Pure Prairie League.

From the album: The Sacred Mushroom
Released: 1969

   
US69 - I Hear You Talkin'

This Connecticut based band was made up of Bill Cartier (drums), Bill Durso (vocals, guitar), Bob DePalma (saxophone), Don DePalma (piano, trumpet), and Gil Nelson (bass, flute). Previously called the Mustard Family, the band changed their name to US ’69 before the release of any of their material.

Signing with the Buddah label, US ’69’s album Yesterdays Folks from 1969 is said to be the best album ever released by the label. The band combines a great mix of eastern-influence music with sitar along with psychedelic, jazz, rock, soul, and funk. The album is strong from start to finish, opening with the excellent “I’m On My Way (A Patch Of Blue)” and closing with “2069: A Spaced Oddity”. Yesterdays Folks has become a highly sought after record among collectors.

From the album: Yesterdays Folks
Released: March 1969

The group, with influences spanning from R&B standards, the British Invasion, to early psychedelia, released five singles in their brief recording career. Despite never breaking out nationally, the band's music has been revived, thanks, in large part, to its inclusion on several compilation albums, most notably Where the Action Is! Los Angeles Nuggets: 1965–1968.
