Pelican Peace Band –Take it off


Pelican Peace Band –Take it off/ Glory Road -Heads Up Production ‎– WS-101 (1973 US)

Power trio featuring Steve Dykmann, Danny Silvester and Kent Huss. Take it off is a hot hot example of killer US  Proto Punk supremely loud and heavy, oozing attitude and featuring some ripping blistering lead breaks. From Des Moines (Iowa) the band later evolved into Sky Dancer over time following different line up changes. The Chicken House credit may provide a direct link to those other Iowa legends Westminst'r. Brutal, Rockin’ and Totally Essential!


Note: Purepop may be changing. Blogs have to move with the times with many people now accessing the site through phones and tablets, so posting the sound clips on Youtube may be the way to go. So I have started my channel, let’s see how it works, feedback most welcome here or on Youtube itself

Moving the tunes to YT seems like a good move. Just hope you keep the write-ups.

I saw them many times in Omaha - always loud and always good. One infamous evening - to a group of stoned hippies - they came out and opened with Hanky Panky and did sixties band unison steps . Then onward with their heavy sounds. I had a wonderful knowing smile on my face the entire time - no doubt.
