Zekes –Leaving You

Zekes –Leaving You/Box-Beverly Hills 9353 (1970 US)

Both sides of this Zekes single are prime examples of Californian Neanderthal heaviness with slight fuzzed-up psych tinges. I think this was their only release, but  I seem to remember that  there was a link to some 60s Garage band, but that info is somehow lost in the fog...Sounds a bit like a West Coast Grand Funk. File somewhere between Sir Lord Baltimore and Bang.

Hear a full version of Leaving You

Hear a full version of Box

Nice one! I was tempted to take a chance on this one but I guess I'm playing it too safe. Mind if I borrow a sound clip?

No problem...Another great win was the single by Inside and The Brood "The Roach"

This is right up my alley, top stuff, especially the B-Side which has the best diz-bustin' fuzz tone this side of "Kingdom Come" by Sir lord baltimore.
The A-side reminds me of all the bands you mentioned with the overall effect coming off a bit like Power Of Zeus.
Was this their only release?
Keep up the great work, it's very much appreciated.
Best wishes,
Sir Lord Balamory :)
