Frank Zappa fans are most likely familiar with a song called Son Of Suzy Creamcheese. I know I'm not. I only recently heard it because a friend told me that the lyrics from this 1967 Teddy And His Patches song was a reference to the Zappa song. Anyway, Teddy And His Patches incorporate certain lyrics from the Zappa song into this mostly raucous, high energy rocker. I love the high energy part of the song, but my favorite part is the last 55 seconds where they slow it down............
Quote: "You see the strobe light flashing. And hear the music clashing. And experience a whole new dimension of sound. Just open up your closed mind. And take a trip on mine. And you'll never want to touch the ground."
Now, I'll copy and paste Borderline Books' blurb on Teddy And His Patches and then post "Suzy.." as well as post the A-side of their other 1967 single, Haight Ashbury, which is a song lamenting the harsh treatment hippies often received in the sixties.

An interesting San Jose-based group which existed for too short a time. Suzy Creamcheese is a superb slice of mayhem and dementia and has rightly become an acid punk classic on account of its inclusion on several compilations. All their material is essential stuff in any garage/psych collection.
