As you know, the link to my mp3 of the month, ESB - "Mushroom People" has been dead basically all month long. I didn't want to let you down. I uploaded it to a good server so you'd all get a chance. Next month's should be available all month. Here's what Borderline Books has to say about "Mushroom People" by ESB, though............
Personnel: PATRICK BURKE A GEORGE CALDWELL A RICHARD FORTUNATO A STEVE LAGANA A ROBERT ZINNER A
45: 1 Mushroom People/Let Me Touch You (In Arts IA 102) 1967
The above fivesome are credited on both sides of this 45, so it seems fair to assume they comprised the band. The 'A' side is weird and strangely fragmented and has surfaced on An Overdose Of Heavy Psych (CD) and High All The Time, Vol. 2 (LP). In Arts was a Californian label.
Burke, Lagana and Fortunate went on to form Fields, a late sixties power-trio with slightly less chemical influences. Fields were Los Angeles based.
Richard Fortunato had earlier made some recordings with post-Vejtables personnel in 1966 and was also with The Preachers of Who Do You Love fame.
Can anyone confirm if ESB was previously W.C. Fields Electric String Band which latterly included George Caldwell of The Bees?
