Takeshi Terauchi And The Bunnys "Let's Go Terry!" 1966

 

Takeshi Terauchi And The Bunnys


Takeshi Terauchi And The Bunnys

Takeshi Terauchi And The Bunnys

Little known in the U.S. is Japan’s premier guitar hero, Takeshi Terauchi, affectionately known as Terry. Terry started recording electric guitar (or ‘eleki’) music in the early Sixties. His best recordings in the mid-to-late Sixties were with two different bands: the adorably named Bunnys and Blue Jeans. Generally, the music itself is Ventures inspired instrumentals accented with fuzzed-out whammy bar acrobatics. What makes The Bunnys and Blue Jeans unique is that they were also influenced by traditional Japanese Minyo, that is, very old rural folk songs. Terry recorded many a Minyo with the electric guitar at the helm in place of traditional instruments like the Shamisen.

Terry-san ranks close behind Western contemporaries Link Wray and Davie Allan when it comes to bad-ass guitar riffing. And though finding articles on him in your favorite magazine or finding his records in your local music shop proves a chore, The Bunnys and Blue Jeans have been included on a number of popular compilations, most notably, Pebbles from Around the World, the excellent Planet X GS collection Monster A Go-Go, Guitar Mood, the Hot Nips series, and the Corumbia Sixties Japanese Garage-Psych Sampler.

The simple answer as to Terry’s absence on the American scene is probably that his records were pressed for the Japanese market and not really made for distribution elsewhere. Who fault is that…? Who knows. Still, he is not entirely unknown in these parts. Galactic surfernauts Man or Astro-Man? tear-up Bunnys’ classic Test Driver on the Experiment Zero LP on Touch & Go Records. Hitomi I at Cutie Morning Moon tells us that Tsugaru Jongarabushi, a Minyo recorded by both Bunnys & Blue Jeans, influenced Brian May’s guitar on Brighton Rock. In the ReSearch book Incredibly Strange Music Vol. 2, Jello Biafra states that Terry’s 1966 release Blues Jeans Golden Album is one of the best instrumental records he’s ever heard.

Terry recorded with The Blue Jeans during the early to mid Sixties. The Blue Jeans belted out surf instrumentals with authority and Terry’s guitar is always interesting. Management problems coupled with the need to keep up with changing times triggered Takeshi’s departure from Blues Jeans in 1966. The Beatles invaded and GS, or Group Sounds (Mersey Beat pop sap with vocals), was in. Terry recruited unknown players to form his own GS band, the Bunnys. Joining forces with him was Tatuya Ogino (organ, vibes), Hajime Ono (bass), Hiroshi Kurosawa (gtr, harmonica, vcls), Tadashi Inoue (drums, vcls, shakuhachi), and Hideyuki Koshiishi (gtr, flute, vcls). Terry’s years with Bunnys were brief: – from Dec. of ‘66 through ‘68. Terry’s Bunnys put out 16 singles, and 6 LPs, including a live album.

The Bunnys’ 1st single, Terry’s Theme b/w Test Driver, captures Terry’s monster guitar at its best coupled with an unrelenting Sci–Fi organ. Their 2nd single, Irrevocable Vow b/w Dream in the Ocean contains not so frantic guitar. Instead it is reminiscent of a snooze-inducing crooner, like early Beach Boys’ harmonious pop sounds. Both appear on their 1st LP, Let’s Go Terry ’66. Although these are not standout vocal endeavors, there are other vocal tracks that are. Burning, Burning, for example, combines an oddly timed beat, wild guitar, and harmonies with yelps and moans into a highly passionate stomper. Flamenco guitar influence can be heard in the last song on the first record, as Terry started to look to other guitar styles and folk tunes for inspiration. His next move was to add something uniquely Japanese to an otherwise Western sound.

Seicho Terauchi-Bushi, released in ’67, is Terry’s interpretation of Japanese Minyo. He replaced the traditional shamisen (3-string instrument) with his powerful electric guitar sound and created fresh and exciting eleki versions of 200 year old songs. This heightened his fame, as he simultaneously exposed his young audience to something from past generations and gained the older crowd’s respect. This was the Bunnys’ most successful record, selling over 100,000 copies and becoming the best selling GS record at the time.

1967 was a busy year for The Bunnys, as they released 8 singles on Seven Seas and 3 LP’s on King. Some are better than others. The single Let’s Go Shake b/w Shake No. 1, presents crazy, eccentric yet melodic vocals topping a dance beat characterizing the Bunnys’ sound. Tsugaru Jongarabushi b/w Dark Eyes both utilized a combination of shamisens, and electric instruments. Joining Bunnys, Mr. Michiya Mihashi plays shamisen on these awesome modern renditions of traditional tunes. Their 3rd LP, The World is Waiting for Terry, contains Moanin’, a rippin’ toe-tapping instrumental, along with covers like House of the Rising Sun, Night Train, and Blue Moon.

In 1967 Koshiishi quit the band to join the Edwards and Suzuki replaced him. Their next record, Let’s Go Classics, is an excellent collection of Western Classical songs. Highlights include excellent fuzz versions of Beethoven’s For Elise and 5th Symphony. Other instantly recognizable tunes, Flight of the Bumblebee, Swan Lake, and Carmen are done eleki style. This record is all balls sans wimpy string arrangements. It sold over 100,000 copies. It was issued in West Germany.

Their last release, Bunnys Golden Album, is a collection of singles and some vocal tracks from the 1st LP. You can see the Bunnys performing Let’s Go Bugalu in the 1968 film, Yoake No Hutari. This is like a Frankie and Annette beach party number with references to Hendrix’s Spanish Castle Magic shoved in (checkout the 5, 6, 7, 8’s version on Teenage Mojo Workout LP). Three more singles and a live LP, Bunnys Golden Concert, were also released that same year.

Unfortunately, the Bunnys never toured outside of Japan. Terry left in the Fall of ‘68 to form his own Blues Jeans but not before recording Christmas Party, swinging renditions of Jingle Bells / Blue Christmas/ Here Comes Santa Claus. Accompanied by children gone wild this instrumental begins with Terry wishing everyone a Merry Christmas. He introduces the band members and then himself as a “very good charming boy.” You can find these tracks on the Bunnys’ singles collection 2.

In 1969, the Bunnys backed Terry on Usukudara b/w Dark Eyes and Blue Star b/w Unchained Melody. These are easy listening efforts. That same year, without Terry, the Bunnys put out Tasogare b/w Samishisona Shojo and recorded an unreleased version of Hair. After a few releases on Liberty, they never scored a hit again and disbanded in 1971. One can assume Terry’s departure was due to his need to concentrate on his guitar playing. He has had a brilliant career, and still plays today. His influence on current Japanese popular music can be heard in bands like The Mad 3, Spoozys and countless others.

The Other Half - Mr Pharmacist (1982)

The Other Half - Mr Pharmacist (1982)

Biography by Richie Unterberger

Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era 1965-1968This obscure San Francisco (by way of L.A.) '60s band gained a degree of notoriety in the '80s when their punk-garage single "Mr. Pharmacist" was included on one of Rhino's Nuggets compilations and covered by the Fall. Actually, most of the Other Half's material was far less garage than psychedelic, featuring the sustain-laden guitar of Randy Holden, one of the best Jeff Beck-inspired axemen of the '60s. Boasting a just-out-of-the-garage approach to Haight-Ashbury psychedelia, the group cut a little-heard, fairly strong album, as well as a few rare singles, in 1967 and 1968. Holden, who had previously played in the L.A. psychedelic garage band Sons of Adam, went on to join Blue Cheer and record on his own.

The Other Half ‎– The Other Half (1968) 

This album has been kicking around for ages, first in cut-out bins in the 1970s and subsequently on want lists, ever since "Mr. Pharmacist" (which was not on this long-player) turned up on Rhino's Nuggets, Vol. 12. It turns out to be not at all bad, if not exactly distinguished -- the Other Half were a much better garage band than they were a psychedelic outfit, their frantic, crunchy rockers (which dominate this record) being far more memorable and impressive than their efforts at trippy, spaced out, languid psych ("Wonderful Day"). "I Need You," and "Feathered Fish" give lead guitarist Randy Holden the opportunity to stretch out in the best Jeff Beck manner (circa the Yardbirds' Roger the Engineer), and even their more primitive numbers, such as "Oz Lee Eaves Drops," are good showcases for the group. Holden and rhythm guitarist Geoff Westen also get into some entertaining faux mandolin sounds on "Morning Fire," but when the band tries to get too serious, as on the two-part "What Can I Do for You," the results are fairly dire, which makes the last ten minutes of the original LP (which didn't even run 30 minutes) easily dispensable.

The Cryan' Shames - Sugar & Spice (1966)

The Cryan' Shames -  Sugar & Spice (1966)


The Cryan' Shames actually were a big deal in Chicago in the mid- and late '60s, when a bunch of their singles hit the local Top Ten; some of them were small national hits as well. The biggest of these was "Sugar and Spice," a cover of a Searchers song that made the Top 50 in 1966 and was later featured in Lenny Kaye's renowned Nuggets anthology of '60s garage bands. In their original incarnation, the Shames leaned toward the pop end of garage. Borrowing heavily from the Beatles, the Byrds, and the Yardbirds, guitarist James Fairs wrote a clutch of energetic guitar pop/rockers with sparkling harmonies. After 1966, the group pursued an increasingly mainstream pop direction featuring saccharine arrangements and material. In this respect they uncannily mirrored the devolution of local rivals the New Colony Six, who also shifted from tough pop/rock to MOR in their bid for national success. But the Shames' appeal endures, partly through the efforts of reissue/archival labels such as Sundazed Records, which have kept their music available into the 21st century, and some of the original members, who have kept the band alive as a performing outfit from the 1980s onward.

They actually started out in Hinsdale, IL, as the Prowlers, a trio formed by Gerry Stone (rhythm guitar), Tom "Toad" Doody (vocals), and Dave Purple (bass, keyboards), who added guitarist James Fairs and drummer Dennis Conroy, both late of a local band from Downers Grove called the Roosters. The quintet became the Travelers, specializing in R&B and rock & roll covers, though Fairs was starting to write originals as far back as 1964. They became a sextet with the addition of Jim Pilster, a one-handed tambourine player whose artificial extremity got him dubbed "J.C. Hooke." Included in their ranks were four singers who were capable of handling lead vocals as well as harmonies, and as they already had their rock & roll and R&B sound down, they emerged as a heavyweight outfit on the local band scene, equally adept at covering the Beatles, the Byrds, or the Rolling Stones, among others. Additionally, as they discovered, Pilster's presence lent them some novelty/publicity value as "the guys with the hook," an attribute that would also benefit the Barbarians around the same time, who sported a member with a replacement appendage. According to biographer Clark Besch, they were making upwards of $180 a gig (albeit split six ways) in 1966, a good fee for a group that had never recorded. They also attracted the attention of manager Bob Monaco, who was associated with the local Destination Records label, and hoped to rectify that gap in their biography in short order.

Sugar & Spice Their new name was imposed upon them when they were notified that another band had a prior claim on "the Travelers" -- as they told Besch, the situation was described by one of the affected parties as "a cryin' shame," and that became their new name. The group and Monaco intended to make their recording debut with George Harrison's "If I Needed Someone" -- a new Beatles song not yet available in the U.S. -- but were thwarted, as the Beatles' publisher wouldn't allow the release. Instead, they grabbed up another, older British Invasion-spawned original, "Sugar and Spice," written by producer/composer Tony Hatch (under the pseudonym "Fred Nightingale") for his client group the Searchers. The number had been in the repertory of another local band, the Riddles, and they got their version out through MG Productions on a tiny local label. The resulting single, which included a proto-psychedelic Fairs original called "Ben Franklin's Almanac," became a Top Five hit locally in Chicago, and attracted the attention of Columbia Records, which bought up their contract and put the record out nationally. It easily made the Top 50 and Columbia wanted more -- the band duly obliged with "I Wanna Meet You," another Fairs original, which only made the Top Ten locally and number 65 nationally. Columbia was still interested in an album, however, and the group delivered the 12-song Sugar & Spice long-player. It was a fairly good record of its kind, mixing covers and Fairs' originals and, as it was done on a tight budget -- basically Columbia accepted the record as delivered, according to Pilster in an essay by Besch -- it also included all four single sides, plus their proposed debut of "If I Needed Someone." Although the album barely cracked the Top 200 nationally, the single and the long-player between them helped raise the band's fees more than fivefold in just a matter of weeks.
A Scratch in the Sky It all wasn't a bad beginning, and might have led to better things for the band, if it hadn't been for the Vietnam War and the military draft, which cost the Shames the services of Gerry Stone. Lenny Kerley, late of the Squires, was his replacement, and was soon partnered up as a songwriter with Fairs, generating a third single, "Mr. Unreliable," which made the Top Ten in Chicago. The Cryan' Shames continued to enjoy immense success locally in Chicago, without parallel sales in the rest of the country -- fortunately, they were not costing Columbia a great deal, and the Chicago music marketplace was important enough to keep the label interested. Their fourth single, "It Could Be We're in Love," recorded and released in the late spring of 1967, topped the local listings, without breaking through nationally. There were some lineup changes around this time, as guitarist Isaac Guillory came in on bass, taking over for Dave Purple, who was drafted that year. And a second album, entitled A Scratch in the Sky, issued in December of that year, actually sold somewhat better than their debut LP, reaching number 158 nationally; in contrast to the mix of garage punk, British Invasion, and folk-rock sounds on Sugar & Spice, A Scratch in the Sky was an ornate sunshine pop/psychedelic work, reminiscent of the Association or, perhaps, the Left Banke. The group saw a string of departures in 1968 and 1969, most notably that of James Fairs, and although the Cryan' Shames continued to record and perform with a new lineup -- featuring Saturday's Children alumnus Dave Carter on guitar and former Squires/Boston Tea Party member Alan Dawson on drums -- a lot of continuity was sacrificed. Dawson also left in late 1968, though not before contributing to their final album, Synthesis. They broke up in the last month of 1969. Since then, there have been reunion performances by various members and the formal reactivation of the group in the late '80s, which continued as of 2009.

The Cryan' Shames -  Sugar & Spice (1966)

The Cryan' Shames' debut album was typical of the more thrown-together rock LPs of the era: both sides of their first two singles and a bunch of cover versions. The singles, actually, were pretty good, including their most well-known song, "Sugar & Spice," a cover of a Searchers hit that actually was more memorable and imaginative than the original. Its B-side, "Ben Franklin's Almanac," was a respectable original with shades of the Byrds, the Yardbirds, and California harmonies; the second single, "I Wanna Meet You," was a decent meld of Beatles-Byrds jangle with Beach Boys harmonies; and its flip, "We Could Be Happy," was an OK soft rock number. Throw in the sole original composition not from a single, "July" (one of the better 1966 Byrds sound-alikes), and you have half a decent (though not great) period pop/rock album. The problem is, though, that the cover versions that fill out the record -- including songs written and/or popularized by the Beatles, the Byrds, and the Animals, along with "Heat Wave" -- are neither too creatively done nor even imaginative selections. "Sugar and Spice" and all four of the originals appear on the Legacy compilation Sugar & Spice, which makes this album superfluous if you already have that anthology. The 2002 CD Sundazed reissue is bolstered by six bonus songs: their 1967 single "Mr. Unreliable" (different from the LP version) and its laid-back B-side "Georgia," a cover of the Beatles' "You're Gonna Lose That Girl," and three previously unreleased 1969 tracks that found them going into a mellow folk/country/soft rock direction.

Jackie DeShannon ‎– The Early Singles 1956-1962

JACKIE DESHANNON was one of the most iconic and important singer/songwriters of the second half of the 20th Century.

The first wholly comprehensive collection of her early recordings, this unique set features her first sixteen singles, recorded between 1956-62, during which she recorded as Sherry Lee, Jackie Dee and Jackie Shannon, before adopting her more familiar stage name in late 1959.
