Talk about a faceless band. Can you name them without reading any further? I wouldn't have been able to, and it's just as likely I won't remember who they are if asked next week. It's total wallpaper up there. The foursome above is the American Breed who had a hit with "Bend Me, Shape Me". If you're into oldies, you've heard it a million times but chances are, you've never seen a photo of the American Breed. Oh, but you have, You saw them yesterday, but you don't remember. That faceless.
Scrounging around the old posts over at De Disco y Monstruos, I ran into their "Short Skirts" a topical throwaway save for the fuzz. And what a fuzz fest it is. Doesn't even sound like the same band, and they were both released in the same year, 1967. Go figure. Another oddball factoid, some or all of the members became Rufus, as in Chaka Kahn Rufus. Damn chameleons these guys.
