WILLIE AND THE RED RUBBER BAND WE RE COMIN UP R-6665527-1424180371-9247 smThe band is off the wall with a melting pot of styles which is slightly endearing. Willie et al came out of west Texas and remind me of a cross between a jug band and the 13th Floor Elevators, or maybe Zappa if he went country, or, The Fugs if they went country. They have nothing in their oeuvre to compare to fellow Texan Roky and his 13th Floor Elevators but they are interesting as a time capsule of the era and they were certainly playing in the same mind park as Roky. Trying to find anything on this band is near on impossible – but they must have had a career as this is their second album and they are on a major label (RCA). The music is a mix of rock, blues, country and soul with a dash of the avant-garde underground. Also, I suspect it was common for bands to do acid whilst drinking mescal, in late 60s. Mary Jane is their best song of their first album and Chicky – Chicky Boom Boom their greatest acid dancing hit from their second LP.
