The Baroques

From: Milwaukee, WI, USA

This ensemble was one of the first psychedelic bands from the Milwaukee area and was originally called the Complete Unknowns until they changed their name to the Baroques in 1966. When playing live, they would dress in baroque outfits and feature a white, pot-bellied stove on stage that contained the controls for their light show...looooney! Members of the group included Jay Borkenhagen (guitar, keyboards, lead vocals), Jacques Hutchinson (guitar, vocals), Rick Bieniewski (base) and Dean Nimmer (drums).

They released one self-titled LP and one single on the Chicago area rhythm and blues label, Chess in 1967. Because of conflicting interests with their record company, they eventually left Chess and in 1968 released a final single on their own Baroque label. After only receiving regional success, they finally split in late '68. Most of their songs, penned by Borkenhagen, are very original and contain a haunting vibe with high, wining vocals and excellent dual guitar work.

Artist information sources include: The book, 'Fuzz, Acid, and Flowers Revisited' by Vernon Joynson.
