Indian Puddin' & Pipe - Hashish (1966-69)



Przedstawiam grupę, której nagrania są uważane w kręgach kolekcjonerskich jako istny "biały kruk". W dobie płyt CD, kiedy to pojawia się bardzo wiele ciekawych pozycji (za co chwała) i ich dostępność jest o wiele większa - chciałem skonfrontować ten mit - i niestety kompletne rozczarowanie - kolejne zresztą. No nijak ta muzyka do mnie nie trafia. Dla mnie kompletna chujoza. Jedyny utwór grupy Indian Puddin' & Pipe, który się broni - to "Hashish" - i tyle - reszta to jakaś "fiukanka". Prezentuję ten album na zasadzie czystej konfrontacji (z czym?). Mam czasem wrażenie, że istnieje - jakieś lobby kolekcjonerskie - które doprawdy - kieruje się nie wiadomo jakimi kryteriami - czy to minimalny (czasem prywatny) nakład? Czy wartością muzyczną? Coś tu nie jest tak? Co myślicie o tych wszystkich legendach?

This group, which has a very confusing and sorted history, began life in 1966 and originally haled from Seattle where they were known as the West Coast Natural Gas. Original members included Steve Guinn (guitar, vocals), Dean Herrick (guitar), Dave Burke (bass), Jeff Labrache (drums) and Kris Larson (12-string guitar, vocals). Guinn and Herrick were soon replaced by Mike "Kep" Kepley (guitar, vocals) and Chuck Bates (lead guitar) who both shared an apartment with Doug Hastings of the Daily Flash. Bates then left suddenly to join the military and was replaced by Steve Mack (lead guitar). Kepley then contracted hepatitis and was replaced by Pat Craig (vocals).

In late 1967, the West Coast Natural Gas relocated to San Francisco, was signed by producer/manager Matthew Katz (Moby Grape, Jefferson Airplane, It's A Beautiful Day) and issued one 45 on Katz's San Francisco Sound label under that moniker. In 1968, they recorded four strong tracks (including the excellent 'Hashish' and 'Water Or Wine') which appeared on the Katz conceived psychedelic compilation LP titled 'Fifth Pipedream, Volume 1'. It's interesting to note that these songs were actually recorded by the West Coast Natural Gas, which abruptly broke up soon after the tracks were laid to wax. Katz then decided to rename the already defunct ensemble Indian, Puddin' And Pipe and issue the tunes under this moniker. Other bands that are featured on this obscure record include It's A Beautiful Day, Black Swan and Tripsichord Music Box.

In late 1968, Pat Craig and Steve Mack got back together and reformed a new, more eclectic version of Indian, Puddin' And Pipe with Rex Larsen (guitar, vocals), Paul Trousdale (tenor saxophone, flute, vocals), Dennis Lannigan (alto saxophone, piano, vocals), Steve "Warthog" Jackson (bass, vocals) and Barry Lewis (drums). Other members that would later join the band before its final demise in late 1969, included Rick Quintanal (drums), Jock Ellis (trombone), David Savage (trumpet) and Lydia Moreno (vocals).

Any chance of re-upping this file?
I've always wanted to here more of IP&P, they had 4 cuts on the 5 Pipe Dream album put out on the San Francisco Sounds label. My older brother was the keyboardist with Tripsichord Music Box that had 3 cuts on that same album. It's been 45 years since I was there with TMB in SF when they were recording their tracks. They also sat in with the group that became It's a beautiful day on their cuts for the 5PD release.
thanks....gam
