Fogerty's? guitar on that is great.

That's his original too isn't it? The only version I have of that song is what must be a cover by The Fantastic Dee Jays

We The People (Orlando, Florida)




"In The Past"

"You Burn Me Up And Down"

"When I Arrive"





ETA: In the comments for "In the Past" Wayne Proctor of We The People shows up. He mentions how another act recently took WTP's backing track on "In The Past", wiped the vocal, and added their own singer. He says it isn't worth the cost/aggravation of fighting.

The Pride of Bunkie

This is a list of the 100 rarest garage punk singles of the 1960s.

The Barracudas - "Baby Get Lost" (1965)

According to the above list, only 4 copies of this single are known to exist.



This raucous screamer from Bunkie high school students is considered a classic by collectors. It sounds kinda odd b/c the record was accidentally speeded up during pressing (a not uncommon occurrence for startup record companies that could not afford a repressing). This version has been slowed down and probably sounds more like originally intended.

Band members:

John Haas (vocals)
Terry Fontanille (lead guitar)
Alex Haas (drums)
Tommy McNabb (bass)

The Barracudas of Bunkie:





John Haas would go on to the fondly-remembered Isosceles Popsicle.

Anybody know any of these guys? Or anything about them? Or the Zandak label of Alexandria? Something tells me there is an interesting story here...

I still have that Golliwogs 45 of Fight Fire and a couple of others. Would love to get a Blue Velvets 45, which of course, was CCR while still in high school in Calif...

The first heavy metal record?

Bitter Creek - "Plastic Thunder" (1967)




Virtually nothing is known about the band. Some sources claim they were from Georgia. This was their only record.

The New Tweedy Brothers

Moby Grape fans on the board (both of you) should check out this Portland Oregon band, whose one obscure album was released (just barely) in 1968.




"I Can See It"

"Somebody's Peepin'"

"Lazy Livin'"

Was punk rock born in Peru?

Los Saicos - "Demolición"

This screamer was released in 1965 (not 1964 as the video link claims). Los Saicos (The Psychos?) remind me of a surf band trying to play hard like the new groups The Kinks and The Who, while keeping to the surf beat instead of power chording. Thus they sound both archaic and ahead of their time simultaneously (though The Sonics in Seattle were doing similar vocals around this same period).



A short documentary about Los Saicos

Wow! I am amazed by your Bottomless Vault.
Barracudas played in Rayne, often, '65-66. Baby John drove a Plymouth Barracuda, and was "Poppin'" a RHS Fox. They did High Energy "Rubber Soul" at the time.

Any Info on "The BAD Roads", out of Lake Charles '65-'67? Or, "Neurotic Sheep", Houston, maybe, '66-'68?

Even the smallest town in those days had multiple Beatle wannabes -- this thread could go on for years

Did you ever see The Clique? Mostly from Beaumont but at least one member was from Lafayette

Don't recall. Could have been the Brown Acid.
The 'Cudas were Spot On with "Rubber Soul", when it came out, and was a major element of their Repertoire.

Saw the "Elevators, and the "Sidewalks," in Houston, '67. They both opened for the Animals, I believe.

The Bad Roads were out of Lake Charles. Had a small regional hit with "Blue Girl".

The Neurotic Sheep originally formed in Fort Worth, cut their Musical Teeth in Houston, and centered around BR in '67-'68. The had a regional "Charter" with a cover of "Season of the Witch".

They sure look more Innocent than I remember.
The "Sheep" were Serious Business; Scruffy, Dedicated Scalawags. Arvel Stricklin was their Lead Guitarist - somewhat of a Legend, in parts of Texas.
We were Hitch-hiking to see them at Thunderbird Beach, in '67, when they picked us up in their Van.
