PH. Phactor Jug Band (1969)





...the marvelously named ph. phactor were one of those 'frisco' bands that were on the periphery of the transition from folk rock to ballroom psych, the place where early dead / !great society! / early big brother meet...hailing from further up the west coast the phactor got themselves hooked up with the hippy explosion coming from the acid soaked streets of san francisco and managed to parley their jug band shenanigans into a one off single 45 deal, choosing to cover an old country blues standard, 'minglewood blues' which went promptly into obscurity with the band, after a few gigs to their name, following closely behind...what did eventually turn up in the late 70s was a semi bootleg LP of italian extraction (copywrite laws not applying in this 'forward thinking' country) consisting of a few tunes they managed to lay down before oblivian called as it did for so many cool combos at the end of the 'sign a hippy band' record company frenzy...a very nice assortment of sounds all based around the blues/jazz/hokum/psych axis, all given a shot through with some righteous reefer humor, making for a good feeling each and every time its spun...

Thank you! I've heard of the Phactors for years and even met John Browne on-line but this is the first time I've heard them.
