Flat Earth Society

From: Lynn, MA, USA

This group of youngsters (the average member's age was around 15) hailed from Lynn, MA, a town just north of Boston. Members included Jack Kerivan (keyboards), Rick Doyle (lead guitar, vocals), Phil Dubuque (guitar, vocals, recorder), Paul Carter (bass, vocals), and Curt Girard (drums).

They issued one LP titled 'Waleeco' in the spring of 1968, which was named after a popular candy bar of the same name. The album was recorded at the Fleetwood Recording Studio in Revere, MA and marketed by the Washburn Candy Corporation as an advertising gimmick to sell more Waleeco candy bars – kids could mail in a half dozen wrappers with a $1.50 and get the record. For being a marketing ploy, the album is surprisingly quite good and contains some notable originals including 'Four & Twenty Miles', 'I'm So Happy' and 'In My Window' (all either written or co-written by Kerivan) and an outstanding, slow tempo cover of 'Midnight Hour'.

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