This fairly atypical garage punk band hailed from Baton Rouge, the State Capital and petrochemical industry centre in Louisiana. Perhaps they played in Texas a lot because they certainly seem to have been connected with the Lone Star State. Texas Punk, Vol. 8 (LP) and Acid Visions - Complete Collection, Vol. 3 (3-CD) captures a live recording of the band at the Act Ill in 1967. It's pretty raw stuff as they work their way through versions of Louie Louie, We Ain't Got Nothing Yet, Hungry, Double Shot Of My Baby's Love, Like A Rolling Stone and The Basement Exit.Never Existed, their stab at immortality, can be heard on Relics, Vol. 1 (LP), Relics Vol's 1 & 2 (CD) and Boulders, Vol. 10 (LP). The Cicadelic 60's, Vol. 4 (LP) also contains an alternate take of the song. Ronnie Weiss (Mouse And The Traps) was on hand in the studio to wield lead guitar on this master-piece.George Ratzlaff went on to form Pot Liquor, who recorded three albums of respectable blues-rock for Janus between 1970-73.
The retrospective on Cicadelic/Collectables may be a reissue of their original album on Senate, if indeed it was ever officially released. Many collectors are very dubious of its existence. Also of interest is Vol. 2/There Goes The Neighbourhood (COL-CD-0541), which contains 18 tracks, mainly covers of classic mid-sixties tunes.
