Buzz Buzz Buzzzzzz, Vol. 1

A wild compilation of 25 rare psychedelic instrumentals from the mid- to late '60s. The likes of The Hot Dog Stand, Peter Pan and the Good Faries, Swamp People, Inner Lite, and the Mugwump Establishment are responsible for mixtures of fuzz and tambourine knock-off rarities. This is transitional material from teenage garage bands that had gone through surfing and hot rod instrumentals, "Louie Louie" and "Gloria," and suddenly crossed into Hell's Angels on Wheels fodder. The Royal Guardsmen provide a perfect example of this transition with the inclusion of "Om." This outfit was known mainly for novelty hits "Snoopys Christmas," "Snoopy Vs. the Red Baron," and "Snoopy for President," but somewhere along the way they also had to include this homage to eastern meditative practices in their repertoire. If this sounds like fun to you, Buzz Buzz Buzzzzzz, Vol. 1 is a must have.

This CD has gotten great reviews, so I don't feel that I need to add much in that regard. Consider this contribution to be more in the way of liner notes. In 1965, Jerome Wheeler, John Mathis (John Evan West) and I founded the Celebrated Renaissance Band in Columbia, Missouri. Shortly thereafter we were joined by Jim Eaves and for a decade, toured extensively in the USA, playing what we called "Psychedelic Old Time" music. We used traditional instruments in the context of what was then coming to be known as "psychedelic". The track included on this CD,"Vibration 2.2" is a good sample of our sound and was released in 1969 by Lion Records (BMI). "Reverb Central" reviewing Vibration 2.2 as part of this compilation said "....a catchy rythmn...with a very nice lead melody...very cool". The instrumentation on this cut is 5-string banjo (Dan William Peek); guitar (Jerome Wheeler); harmonica (John Mathis); electric bass (Jim Eaves); drums (studio). All four original members of the band are still active in the arts and music. Dan William Peek is a writer, musician and marketing consultant based in Columbia, Missouri. He is the author of "To The Point: The Story of Darts in America" (ISBN 1891708236); Jerome Wheeler, also of Columbia, Missouri, is a songwriter and perfomance artist whose tunes have been recorded by The Ozark Mountain Daredevils and other major recording artists; John Mathis (John Evan West), a musician and entrepreneur in Redondo Beach, California, owns a business which exports automotive racing equipment. He plays with a band called "Ledfoot" which is composed of racing professionals. He has done studio work for television and movie sound tracks. Jim Eaves (Big Jim) is also a studio musician in the Los Angeles area. A CD of remastered studio and live recordings of the Celebrated Renaissance Band is expected to be released late in 2003.
