This group from the Detroit area is probably the weirdest experimental psych outfits from 1970. Originally the band was hired by Zig Zag Records to record cover tunes and easy listening, with the intention, "Were just doing whatever we want," the result was an overdosed rock concept album. "to give the music back to the people". Original copies are rare and pretty unknown among psych collectors until now! The 7 songs with an average length of 7 mins combine different styles of music, from heavy garage rock to bluesy westcoast, drifting into various tripped-out, funk, jazz, fusion elements with humorous/social comments. Structure, feeling and complexity can be compared to experimental Krautrock, while the groups basic sound is represented better by end-60s US Hippie Rock as Country Joe & the Fish or The Head Shop (WIS-1024) with its excessive fuzz guitar work, Farfisa organ, amazing vocals by Clevelands "Bocky" and several additional instruments, sax, harpsichord, cello, percussion, bells.. Studio work is pretty tricky, lots of unexpected mixing and experiments, with flashes of UKs legendary "White Noise". - This CD issue contains a 12 p. colour booklet with a bands bio, and the cool original album design, made by John Williams who also worked for Zappa - so it can be assumed which influences Zappa used for his 1972, "Grand Wazoo" album?!? Wazoo presents at the highest level of musicianship free & atmospheric rock - a unique kind of musical renaissance! - Discover it, its a unique piece of early 70s psychedelia!
