The Pops Merrily –Help Me Down
The Pops Merrily –Help Me Down/Legge’s Lurk –Aquarius AQ 5004 (1970 Canada)
If ever there was a Canadian volume of Bonehead Crunchers, Pops Merrily’s Help Me Down would surely feature in a prime position. Of particular note are Peter Sutherland’s “affected” vocals, jesus talk about method singing…The beat is underpinned by a stoic cowbell and the riffage is supreme with the guitar going totally out to lunch upon exit. It appears that this was one of two singles from this Montreal outfit who featured Gary Moffet who would turn up in a later incarnation of April Wine.
