Crap From The Past - October 21, 2005: Pledge Drive


Crap From The Past - October 14, 2005: Before They Were Famous II, hosted by Ron and Jean of KFAI's Radio Rumpus Room

Originally aired as Radio Rumpus Room on September 23, 2005; playlist is as listed on their terrific website, www.radiorumpusroom.com.

This was our first (and maybe only) stab at something we called "Before They Were Famous" -- a look at how two dozen well-known musicians were paying the rent before they cracked the Big Time. Judging from the calls and emails, listeners dug it!

SAVVY SHOW STARTER (always locally recorded!): Bob Ashley and The Reflections -- Made in England (Shakin' All Over; Sundazed)

It was the Wheatfield Soul boys themselves, as the group that would become the Guess Who recorded this Shadows-like instro in the Fall of '63 at Kay Bank studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Rockin' Vickers -- It's Alright (The Complete: It's Alright!; Purple Pyramid)

Featuring one Ian Willis, before he became Lemmie Killmeister of Hawkwind and Motorhead.

Golden Earrings -- Not to Find (V/A Essential Pebbles, Vol. 3; AIP)

They dropped the "s" from their name prior to hitting it huge with "Radar Love."

John's Children -- Desdemona (V/A Nuggets II box; Rhino)

This 1967 track features Marc Bolan (T-Rex) on guitar.

The Mannish Boys -- I Pity the Fool (CD-R)

The Mannish Boys featured David Jones, before he changed his name to David Bowie (ostensibly to prevent confusion with the already well-known British stage actor who would go on to star in the TV show "The Monkees." Bonus on this 1965 track -- an early Jimmy Page guitar solo.

Lowell George -- The Loved One (Psychedelic Frequencies; Temple)

Went on to form Little Feat.

The Moving Sidewalks -- Every Night a New Surprise (The Moving Sidewalks; Lone Star)

These garage-rockin' Texans included Billy Gibbons, eventually of ZZ Top.

The Beachnuts -- Cycle Annie (V/A Soundsville; Pickwick)

A pre-Velvet Underground Lou Reed was a studio hack at the notoriously low-buck Pickwick Records, writing songs and recording them lickety-split."There were four of us literally locked in a room," said Reed.

The Darts -- Alky Burner (Hollywood Drag; Del-Fi)

With "Rhinestone Cowboy" Glen Campbell on lead guitar. Dig the heavy-duty hot rod effects!

Episode Six -- Mighty Morris Ten (CD-R)

Episode Six included Ian Gillan and Roger Glover, pre-Deep Purple.

Jim Messina and the Jesters -- The Jester (reish of "The Dragsters" LP; Surf)

Messina went on to play in the Buffalo Springfield, Poco, and most famously, the soft-rock Loggins and Messina.

Merrilee and the Turnabouts -- Party Song

Merrilee Rush, two years before her 1968 hit "Angel Of The Morning."

Bonnie Jo Mason -- Ringo, I Love You

She used three names before she settled on one: Cher.

Mac Rebennack -- Storm Warning (Medical School: Early Sessions of Mac "Dr. John" Rebennack; Music Club)

Mac played under his own name before the adopted the pseudonym "Dr. John."

Baby Ray and the Ferns -- World's Greatest Sinner (Cucamonga; Del-Fi)

Not the vocal alas, but all instruments played by Frank Zappa. Written by him too.

The Outlaws -- That Set The Wild West Free (The Outlaws: Rare Items; Gibson)

Lead guitarist during the band's latter years -- which included this track -- was a pre-Deep Purple Ritchie Blackmore.

(bed) Sly Stewart -- Buttermilk Part 1 (The Autumn Records Story; Edsel)

This Booker T & MGs-like number features Sly, prior to his band Sly & The Family Stone.

Terry Knight and the Pack -- How Much More (V/A Pebbles 3; AIP)

From Flint, Michigan, this band became Grand Funk Railroad.

The Iguanas -- Again and Again (Jumpin' With The Iguanas)

For this band from Ann Arbor, Michigan, one Jim Osterberg wrote lyrics and played drums. He eventually adopted the name Iggy Pop.

The Spiders -- Don't Blow Your Mind (Garage Beat '66 Vol. 2; Sundazed)

This 1966 track features Vincent Furnier on vocals and harmonica. He became better known in the early '70s as Alice Cooper.

(bed) The Crossfires -- Fiberglass Jungle (V/A Cowabunga surf box; Rhino)

Literally overnight in 1964 the surf-rock Crossfires became the folk-rock Turtles. That's Flo and Eddie on sax tearin' it up on this surf classic.

Southwest F.O.B. -- Smell of Incense (Smell Of Incense; Sundazed)

You can guess all you want, but it's England Dan and John Ford Coley.

The Hassles -- Warming Up (The Hassles; Razor & Tie)

Long Island's Billy Joel on keyboards.

The Herd -- From the Underworld (V/A Acid Drops, Spacedust & Flying Saucers; Mojo)

With a 17-year-old Peter Frampton (immediately before Humble Pie and a monster solo career), this one went to #6 in England.

The Valentines -- Peculiar Hole in the Sky (V/A Peculiar Hole in the Sky; Big Beat)

Included Bon Scott,eventually of AC/DC.

The Mockingbirds -- How to Find a Lover (V/A Nuggets II box; Rhino)

Included Graham Gouldman and Kevin Godley who wrote "For Your Love," "Bus Stop," and "No Milk Today" prior to forming 10CC.

Lyme and Cybelle -- Follow Me (V/A Nuggets box; Rhino)

Lyme was a young Warren Zevon, before he became a gun-toting Excitable Boy.

Tico and the Triumphs -- Motorcycle (V/A Motorcycle Gang; Buffalo Bop)

Shortly after he was released by the Army in '62, folk-rocker Paul Simon touched the Top 100 with this song.

True story: Frank The Cabbie is a loyal listener to KFAI, and always listens to CFTP on Friday nights as he's driving around town.  Well, a passenger got in right as I was starting the song by Dof.  He's in the back seat not more than two seconds when Frank notices that his eyes are closed and he's leaning against the window.  Frank thinks, "Oh, great.  He's dead.  It was bound to happen sooner or later - Ron played a song so bad that it killed someone."  So he calls the radio station to talk to me, and just as he's explaining that he thinks the guy's dead, the guy weakly mutters, "I'm not dead..."  The power of radio...
