Pesky Gee! –Where is My Mind
Pesky Gee! –Where is My Mind/A Place of Hearbreak –Pye 7N. 17708 (1969 UK)
Pesky Gee! Was in fact Black Widow before their name change. Their cover of this Vanilla Fudge track finds them leaving their soul cover band origins behind and heading into the weirder territory they would later occupy. The saxophones and high vocals add a certain baroque feel which is odd yet fitting with the Heavy dose of Psych fuzz. Ex Pesky Gee! members Clive Jones and Clive Box would later re-appear in the late 70s as Agony Bag, releasing the incredible Rabies is a Killer. I was lucky enough to see Clive perform the track live with Guida last year shortly before his untimely death.
