The Bluestars-Obviously influenced by English RnB bands this Auckland band recorded one of the all time great garage/freakbeat singles not just from downunder, but anywhere in the world. Social End Product is a must hear. They actually sent a tape to Decca in England which was surprisingly accepted. In fact their first single, Please Be A Little Kind/I Can Take It was released in England before it came out in their homeland.
Formed in the wake of the British beat boom, this Auckland outfit wrote and recorded their own material and sent a tape to Decca, London in 1965, which much to their surprise was accepted. They became the first New Zealand band to record on Decca and I Can Take It has subsequently resurfaced on the U.K. CD compilation The Freakbeat Scene (Deram 844 879-2) 1998. They evolved out of an outfit called The Nomads, who included Roger McLay on lead guitar but not John Crowley. Their debut 45 was released in Europe and Japan before its release in New Zealand in March 1966.
Their finest moment came in September 1966 with Social End Product, one of the country's early garage punkers it had snarling vocals, fuzzy guitar, hysterical screams and a cough right in the middle of the song. You can also check it out on Wild Things, Vol. 1, Transworld Punk, Vol. 2 and Ugly Things, Vol. 3. The following month they opened their own nightclub, which they named 'The Gallows' in the plush suburb of Remuera. The club was later closed down due to noise problems.They finally split after a further 45 in February 1967.In the nineties, Crowley plays drums in various Aussie bands, Harris works in T.V., Savidan is a commercial photographer and Van Bokhoven is in advertising.

Conocidos en principio como The Showmen, el grupo estaba formado por el cantante Butch Engle, el guitarra líder Bob Zamnora, el bajista Harry “Happiness” Smith, el batería Rich Morrison y el teclista Mark Pardee. En agosto de 1964 publicaron su primer sencillo, “You know what I want”.
En el año 2000, el sello Sundazed editaba un recopilatorio del grupo titulado “No matter what you say”.
Band info, here and this album review, there.

The Electric Prunes originated from the San Fernando Valley, a suburb of Los Angeles, although many bio's mistakenly claim that they came from Seattle, since I Had Too Much Too Dream (Last Night) first broke in Seattle and then Boston. In fact their very first live concert to promote the record was in Seattle, and according to their drummer Preston Ritter, a DJ there started the mis-information, by claiming that the band were from that area.
Their debut album provided two U.S. hit singles: I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night) and Get Me To The World On Time. Both also attracted airplay in the U.K. reaching Nos 49 and 42 respectively. The former, starts with a freaky fuzz- box intro - the brain child of their producer, Dave Hassinger. The lyrics and their sound were tailor-made for the druggy days of 1967. Get Me To The World On Time was a driving, urgent rocker, superimposed on top of a culminating whistle sound.
Also on the album and the B side to their second single, was Are You Lovin' Me More (But Enjoying It Less) which used echo-drumming techniques to good effect. Some of the other numbers like Onie and Train For Tomorrow, were a little more laid back, but still featured acid guitar work. The album peaked at No 113 in the charts.
mmm, perhaps not, better->
the recordings were taken from:
LA, Calif 67
San Fernando Valley 66/67

Around the time of S.F. Sorrow, the band recorded an album in France. The Philippe De Barge
The result was only transferred to one acetate and never pressed because he died shortly after. The album has subsequently been pirated on CDR, with some of the songs being different versions of titles which they also recorded as Electric Banana. (alias John Alder) from album, as it has become known, came into being when French millionaire Philippe De Barge wanted to finance something to do with swinging sixties London and he persuaded the Pretties to come over to his Chateau to record an LP.
something lovely, take a look.
BUZZ THE JERK
