One more mention...Gerry Roslie, Larry Parypa, and Bob Lind have reunited for a new Sonics line up since 2008. Reportedly they still have what it takes.

To those new to the world of Sean Bonniwell's music, there were two classic Music Machine lineups. The Bonniwell Music Machine was signed up to Warner Brothers after Bonniwell felt very dissatisfied with Original Sound, the company that's best known for what's possibly the first collections of Rock "Oldies" who only saw the single as important in an era when the album was gaining importance. A number of original Music Machine era songs found their way to the Warners album (1968), but there were about two other lineups which recorded for both Warners and even Bell, where "Mother Nature, Father Earth" came from. Sadly, Bonniwell was found recording soundtracks to B movies by 1970 after a failed solo album as TS Bonniwell - the backing track to "Dark White" by the original line up (possibly the final recording by them) wound up in The Other Side of Madness, possibly the very first Manson Exploitation film. The Day of the Wolves has a very effective theme song.

The first edition of the Music Machine is very important to Rock historians. Future hit making producer Keith Olsen was in that line up on Bass along with Future Ike and Tina Turner Live Review Guitarist Mark Landon. Doug Rhodes is on Organ, and Ron Edgar is on Drums.

The label was begging for another "Happy Together" and you might have thought that with the sloppy cliches and "et ceterea" thrown in the chorus the powers that be got the joke, but they only smelled a hit and got one, although most of the Battle of the Bands album was a very interesting collision of styles hinting at the Zappa world Flo and Eddie would enter in The 70's.

It was so shocking to me when I was older and learned that "Elenore" was deliberately written to be a really ... well, dumb pop song. Nonetheless, I'm not ashamed to admit that I've always loved singing along to that one. 60s pop gold, man.

Really love Psy-Fi's mentioning of the Electric Prunes. I've always been spellbound by these two tracks in particular:

"Wind Up Toys"



"Antique Doll"



They just have that kind of sound that really gets to me. Spooky (but proper psych).

I've also got a taste for Vanilla Fudge. (They were something great, too.)

"You Keep Me Hangin' On"



I also really enjoyed their covers of "Eleanor Rigby", "Season of the Witch" and "Some Velvet Morning". They're one of my favorite groups to get wasted to.

How about Moby Grape?

Get your sadness on, brothers.

"8:05"



1910 Fruitgum Co. were pretty fab for a while. As was Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mich & Tich. Ohio Express. Loads of weird bubblegum pop groups sprouted up in the 60s.

Played the hell out of this when I was about 17/18 -

1910 Fruitgum Co. - "1-2-3 Red Light"



God, I love the 60s.
