From: Boston, MA, USA
This Boston band formed in late 1966, naming themselves loosely after the Rolling Stones LP 'December's Children (And Everybody's)'. The original lineup included Richard "Sham" Schmack (guitar, vocals), Larry Kiley (bass), Jimmy Sturman (drums), and Bill Robar (guitar). Although Robar was one of the founding members, he didn't last long and wasn't replaced.
In the spring of 1968 they released a debut, self-titled LP and one supporting 45. The album consists of a rather awkward mix of Jimi Hendrix inspired heavy guitar rockers, peppered with smoother, jazzy crooners. The standout track on the record is the 7+ minute 'Just Let Go', which starts off with a jazzy nightclub feel, but soon turns into a guitar laden Eastern psychedelic jam-a-thon. Their second LP ('Sure Looks Real') was released in late 1968. This record is a more solid and consistent effort throughout and includes the excellent, spacey title track.
