The Avengers "Be a Caveman" (Best audio quality)





Another Merced band "keep her in line" great stuff.

The Brymers - House of rising sun (Animal cover)





Another 60s garage band from the San Joaquin Valley - I probably saw these guys at one of the regular Battle Of The Bands in Merced, definitely remember The Morlochs, who later became Crstal Syphon.



In 1964, Coast Artists and Diplomacy Records took teen rock band The de-Fenders and, for a publicity stunt, shaved their heads to capitalize on the success of then popular actor Yul Brynner. Renamed The Brymers (pronounced “Brimmers”), the group became a popular backing band for many of the hit makers of the era and, in 1966, scored regionally with a composition of their own entitled “I Want To Tell You”. With the garage rock classic “Sacrifice” as the B-side, the single conclusively proved that The Brymers didn’t need promotional gimmicks in order to prove they were a group to take notice of.

Now, some 44 years after its creation, Roaratorio is proud to make the music of Crystal Syphon available for the first time ever. Drawn from studio tracks, rehearsal tapes and a live recording from the Fillmore West, Family Evil features cover art by Norman Orr and extensive historical liner notes in an old-style “tip-on” jacket.

A Cid Symphony - Pierced Hand Number 1





A few years back I was fortunate to find a copy of this rare three disc album, pressed on clear vinyl, red green and yellow. These guys were from Berkeley by way of LA and were an interesting part of the SF hippy music scene.

Ed Palermo Big Band 2014 01 18 Early Iridium NYC





DISCORPORATE

And we will begin



Diamonds on velvets on goldens on vixens

On Comet & Cupid on Donner & Blitzen

On up & away & afar & a go-go

Escape from the weight of your corporate logo!



UNBIND YOUR MIND

THERE IS NO TIME

TO LICK YOUR STAMPS

AND PASTE THEM IN

DISCORPORATE

AND WE'LL BEGIN

FREEDOM! FREEDOM!

KINDLY LOVING!

YOU'LL BE ABSOLUTELY FREE

ONLY IF YOU WANT TO BE



Dreaming on cushions of velvet & satin

To music by magic by people that happen

To enter the world of a strange purple Jello

The dreams as they live them are all mellow yellow



UNBIND YOUR MIND

THERE IS NO TIME

TO LICK YOUR STAMPS

AND PASTE THEM IN

DISCORPORATE

AND WE'LL BEGIN

FREEDOM! FREEDOM!

KINDLY LOVING!

YOU'LL BE ABSOLUTELY FREE

ONLY IF YOU WANT TO BE



YOU'LL BE ABSOLUTELY FREE

ONLY IF YOU WANT TO BE

Sting - Nada Como El Sol - Fragile [Portuguese HG DANCE VIDEO].wmv



If blood will flow when flesh and steel are one
Drying in the color of the evening sun
Tomorrow's rain will wash the stains away
But something in our minds will always stay

Perhaps this final act was meant
To clinch a lifetime's argument
That nothing comes from violence and nothing ever could

For all those born beneath an angry star
Lest we forget how fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star
Like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are
How fragile we are

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star
Like tears from a star
On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are
How fragile we are
How fragile we are
How fragile we are
