The New Nadir & Me and The Others - Uncovered

 

The New Nadir & Me and The Others - Uncovered

(Groundbreaking split LP including 5 killer previously unreleased 1967 Freakbeat/RnB/Garage studio tracks by the legendary New Nadir featuring Ed Carter from San Francisco, California on lead guitar and vocals (pre The Beach Boys); Gary Thain from Christchurch, New Zealand on bass (pre Keef Hartley, and Uriah Heep); plus Peter Dawkins also from Christchurch, New Zealand on drums (the greatest record producer from down under). The New Nadir have played some celebrated clubs in London such as the Speakeasy where they gigged a few times with Jimi Hendrix, who was supposed to produce their first record for the UK Polydor label, however after Ed Carter had received the offer to join The Beach Boys, the band split and nothing was ever released. The five tracks by The New Nadir on this LP were recorded on Monday, August 28th 1967, at a professional Swiss recording studio near Zurich, and capture them in great mood at their fantastic first recordings. The songs range from top Freakbeat/Garage masterpieces (TOMORROW, as well as I NEED HER NOW), thru unique eastern influenced Freakbeat tracks with raga riffs (BLACK SNOW), and onto the pop-art sound of PEOPLE ARE CHANGING, and the rambling RnB/Freakbeat/Garage guitar instrumental WALKING. The LP is highlighted by the monster previously unreleased Freakbeat track LOVE IS NOT A GAME, which was recorded by the pre-New Nadir outfit Me And The Others in November 1966, at Regent Sound Studios in London. This could easily hail as one of the greatest Freakbeat tracks which was ever produced in the UK. Me And The Others were a mid 60s beat/RnB/Freakbeat band from Christchurch, New Zealand featuring Peter Dawkins on drums, and vocals (ex The Strangers); Dave Chapman on guitar, Gary Thain on bass (ex The Secrets, and The Strangers), as well as Paul Muggleston on lead vocals, guitar, and organ (ex The Secrets, The Dynamics, Atlantics, etc.).

The five tracks by The New Nadir on this LP were recorded on Monday, August 28th 1967, at a professional Swiss recording studio near Zurich, and capture them in great mood at their fantastic first recordings. The songs range from top mod/freakbeat/garage masterpieces (TOMORROW, as well as I NEED HER NOW), thru unique eastern influenced freakbeat tracks with raga riffs (BLACK SNOW), and onto the pop-art sound of PEOPLE ARE CHANGING, and the rambling rnb/freakbeat/garage guitar instrumental WALKING.


The LP is highlighted by the monster previously unreleased freakbeat track LOVE IS NOT A GAME, which was recorded by the pre-New Nadir outfit Me And The Others in November 1966, at Regent Sound Studios in London. This could easily hail as one of the greatest freakbeat tracks which was ever produced in the UK.


Me And The Others were a mid 60s beat/rnb/freakbeat band from Christchurch, New Zealand featuring Peter Dawkins on drums, and vocals (ex The Strangers); Dave Chapman on guitar, Gary Thain on bass (ex The Secrets, and The Strangers), as well as Paul Muggleston on lead vocals, guitar, and organ (ex The Secrets, The Dynamics, Atlantics, etc.). The LP is rounded out by 5 choice never before released live tracks from a Me And The Others gig in Germany that was recorded in January 1967: The amazing Graham Bond Organisation type of guitar - organ instrumental COMING HOME BABY, plus fantastic kiwi modbeat/garage/freakbeat versions of YOU BETTER RUN, HOLD ON I’M COMING, and CAN’T TURN YOU LOOSE, as well as the killer beat/rnb/punk original track EVEN GREEN ONES.




1. Gary Thain played with his brother Arthur in the fabulous early 60s beat / garage band The Strangers with whom he released three excellent 45s between the years 1963 to 1965. Gary’s 2nd band The Secrets was nominated with the Loxene Golden Disc award for IT’S YOU (the Searchers-like top-deck of the killer garage track YOU’RE WRONG) in 1965.


After the breakup of The Secrets in 1966, Gary Thain and Paul Muggleston (also from The Secrets) teamed up with Peter Dawkins and Dave Chapman to tour Europe with Peter’s band Me And The Others.


After the breakup of Me And The Others, Gary, and Peter went on to form the legendary freakbeat/rnb/garage trio The New Nadir with Ed Carter from California on vocals, and guitar. The rest is history. Ed Carter then joined The Beach Boys, and Gary went on to play with Champion Jack Dupree, Keef Hartley and Uriah Heep.


2. Ed Carter became the lead guitarist and bass player of The Beach Boys in 1968, with whom he still plays with today.


3. Peter Dawkins has produced no less than 20 number one hit records, and over 50 gold and platinum albums during his producing career.


4. Ed Carter began in 1963 to play guitar and bass with The Shufflers, a surf and rhythm and blues band from southern California featuring Mike Kowalski on drums, and Bruce Johnston on keyboards and guitar. In 1965 Johnston joined The Beach Boys to replace Brian Wilson at concerts. Three years later, in 1968, Carter and Kowalski became permanent members of The Beach Boys too.


5. Jimi Hendrix was going to produce the first record of The New Nadir for the UK Polydor label, however after Ed Carter received the offer to join The Beach Boys, The New Nadir split and nothing was ever released.


6. Jimi Hendrix shared the stage with The New Nadir several times during 1967 – 1968, and he jammed with them at the Speakeasy!


7. LOVE IS NOT A GAME was never released, only because Me And The Others had no time to record a flipside for it, as they had to leave for some gigs in Germany, where they finally broke up in February of 1967.


8. The five songs by The New Nadir are all top notch 1967 freakbeat originals, written by Ed Carter, Gary Thain, and Peter Dawkins.



9. The New Nadir tracks have a killer analogue sound quality as they were cut DIRECTLY from the original master tapes!


10. The New Nadir tracks were all recorded as part of a package promotion deal which was put together by the famous Swiss 60s music magazine Pop, and the small Swiss Eurex Records label. The recording session was held at a professional Swiss recording studio that was located near Zurich.


11. The New Nadir tracks on this LP were never released because the band didn’t want to end up on a small Swiss record label. They wanted their first record to be produced by Jimi Hendrix for Polydor Records in the UK.


12. The LP comes with extensive liner notes written by Peter Dawkins and Dave Chapman.


13. The LP cover shots of Me And The Others were taken in London for Brian Epstein’s agency.

The 5th Estate -Ding Dong! The Witch Is Back!: The Fifth Estate, 1964-1969

The 5th Estate -Ding Dong! The Witch Is Back!: The Fifth Estate, 1964-1969




Members
Rick Engler - guitar, fuzz bass, lead vocals, harmonica
Ken 'Furvus' Evans - drums, vocals
Doug 'Duke' Ferrara - bass, lead harmony vocals
Wayne 'Wads' Wadhams (d. 19 August 2008) - harpsichord, piano, organ, lead vocals

Bob 'Bobby Lee' Klein - lead vocals, keyboards, guitar (1969 + 2006>)


Best remembered for their 1967 novelty smash "Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead," pop combo the Fifth Estate began their career in Stamford, CT, in 1964 as the Demen. Originally comprised of singer Don Askew, guitarists Rick Engler and Ken Evans, bassist Doug Ferrara, keyboardist Wayne Wadhams, and drummer Bill Shute, the group soon changed its name to the D-Men, honing a British Invasion-influenced garage approach that resulted in a contract with the tiny Veep label. Their debut single, "Don't You Know," appeared in the fall of 1964, soon followed by "I Just Don't Care"; neither single earned notice outside of the Stamford area, and the D-Men adopted a folk-rock sound for 1965's "So Little Time," their lone effort for the Kapp label. Following the addition of lead vocalist Chuck LeGros, the band adopted the name the Fifth Estate, relocated to New York City, and in May 1966 returned with "Love Is a Game," one of the last-ever singles on the venerable Red Bird label, which closed its doors soon after the single's release. Although Askew and Wadhams were enjoying some success as songwriters, placing material with the Brothers Four and Reparata & the Delrons, the rest of the Fifth Estate were growing increasingly disenchanted with the music business -- frustrations reached their peak in late 1966, when LeGros stomped off-stage during the middle of a set and never returned.

While performing at a Christmas party not long after, Askew reportedly cracked that given the proper production and promotion, any song could become a hit; his bandmates took the bait, and Askew and Wadhams set to work on adapting the Wizard of Oz chestnut "Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead," basing their arrangement in part on Michael Praetorius' dance suite "Terpsichore." Jubilee Records heard the demo and quickly signed the group, with "Ding Dong!" falling just shy of the Billboard Top Ten in mid-June 1967; the Fifth Estate spent the summer touring as part of a package headlined by Gene Pitney and the Happenings, and in August released the follow-up, the Lovin' Spoonful sound-alike "The Goofin' Song." The record went nowhere, as did the subsequent "Heigh Ho!" As some of the lineup returned to college, the Fifth Estate recorded and performed sporadically -- later Jubilee singles including "Do Drop Inn" and "Coney Island Sally" substituted session musicians for members who were MIA, and 1969's "The Mickey Mouse Club March" featured none of the official members at all. When Jubilee called it quits later that year, the Fifth Estate followed suit; Wadhams later enjoyed a career as a producer and arranger of some note, also teaching at the Berklee School of Music; in 1995, his Boston Skyline label issued the 27-track D-Men/Fifth Estate compilation Ding Dong! The Witch Is Back.

The 5th Estate -Ding Dong! The Witch Is Back!: The Fifth Estate, 1964-1969


In the mid-'60s, Wayne Wadhams performed in a band called the D-Men that evolved into the Fifth Estate. They went Top 15 in 1967 with a novelty remake of the Wizard of Oz tune "Ding Dong! The Witch Is Dead!." Their only hit on Jubilee Records is very misleading. This group should be as sought after as Moulty & the Barbarians. This is a very generous collection of demos: songs they wrote for the Righteous Brothers and Cilla Black, and covers of Buddy Holly's "It's So Easy"" and John Lee Hooker's "Boom Boom." This album really goes across the '60s spectrum, which makes it so fun and so unique. The rhythm tracks to "I Wanna Shout/Tomorrow Is My Turn" sound like the Ventures performing in your living room; the second portion of the song descends into a dirty "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida"-type riff. With all the cult fascination for Roky Erickson and the Chocolate Watchband, it is amazing what the 64-plus minutes on this disc reveal, and even more amazing that this music isn't as sought after as so many other bands from that era. A novelty hit, after all, hardly has the lustre of a Standells riff or ? & the Mysterians' organ passages. The unreleased 1966 single "How Can I Find the Way" sounds like Barbara Harris of the Toys. The liner notes on the back of the CD call this "A real first: the complete recorded output and memoirs of a group who recorded for four labels between 1964 and 1967." The demo for their breakthrough hit, the cover from The Wizard of Oz (as well as the hit version) is here, and when you play that next to "Love Isn't Tears Only," their demo for the Righteous Brothers, the abilities of these New Englanders comes totally into focus. It would've been perfect for the Walker Brothers or Tom Jones. The McGregor Clothes jingle is lifted carefully from Chad & Jeremy's 1964 hit "Yesterday's Gone." Murray the K even makes an appearance -- a tape from his WINS-AM show recorded in 1964 appears in between songs four and six. Early work by future producers Bill Szymczyk and Phil Ramone are also included; the liner notes by Joe Tortelli are as thorough as his lengthy essay in the Delaney & Bonnie package for Rhino. The 28 tracks, featuring 26 songs, the Murray the K bit, and the clothing jingle would be a good study course in the life of a rock band who hit it big, and all their work that went in between. Wayne Wadhams is a major producer who has worked with jazz act Full Circle on Columbia, among many others. As producer David Foster emerged from the Canadian band Skylark, the history of producer Wadhams compiled here with his Fifth Estate is more than just a good study. As stated, this is a real period piece for collectors of vintage '60s music. ~ Joe Viglione Includes liner notes by Joe Tortelli. Producers: Kevin Gavin, Steve Jerome, The Fifth Estate. Engineers include: Bill Szymczyk, Phil Ramone, Eddie Youngblood. The Fifth Estate: Chuck Legros, (vocals, tambourine); Bill Shute (acoustic & electric guitars, mandolin); Rick Engler (guitar, background vocals); Wayne Wadhams (vocals, piano, harpsichord, organ); Doug Ferrara (bass, percussion, background vocals); Ken Evans (drums, percussion).

The Embermen Five ‎– Fire In Their Hearts



Dubbed "North Dakota's best '60s group" by author Tom Tourville in his book Rockin' the Northern Plains, garage combo the Embermen Five was formed in Minot, ND, in 1963 by 16-year-old keyboardist Ron Boen and drummer Herb Parker Jr. shortly after the former's family relocated from Salt Lake City. Recruiting classmates Pete Luxom on lead guitar, Paul Unwin on rhythm guitar, and Bob Johnson on bass, the fledgling group dubbed themselves the Demensions and rehearsed their instrumental covers of surf and R&B hits for a year before making their public debut at a local dance.

Luxom resigned in late 1964, and after adding new lead guitarist Larry Tanner and installing Parker as lead vocalist, the Demensions rechristened themselves the Embermen to avoid conflict with another similarly named local act. Modifying the moniker to the Embermen Five in early 1965, the band nurtured a devoted local following with its frequent appearances at school dances and related functions, and soon they were touring the state on weekends.

In the spring of 1966 they drove to Minneapolis, entering Kaybank Studios to record a pair of Parker originals, "Fire in My Heart" and "Without Your Love" -- issued on the Studio City label that June, the single was a local smash, topping Minot radio play lists for six weeks running. In August the Embermen Five opened for the Beach Boys, and after cutting an ill-fated session for Chess Records, they returned to Kaybank to record four more Parker originals: the first single from the sessions, the garage punk gem "That's Why I Need You," appeared on Studio City in the fall of 1967, and was quickly followed by the cult classic "Baby I'm Forgettin' You."

By 1968 the various members of the Embermen Five were attending college -- the grind of touring was wreaking havoc with music major Parker's vocal chords, so Tanner's 15-year-old brother was installed as a second vocalist. During the spring the band decamped to Century Recording in Fargo to cut their final single, the R&B-inspired "Do You Have to Be So Cruel" -- however, local radio instead seized upon the B-side, a cover of the Ernest Tubb composition "Tomorrow Never Comes." In mid-1968 the Embermen Five began to splinter -- first Larry Tanner exited to join the band Pierson Lake, and in the fall Parker quit to focus his full attention on college.

The following spring, Unwin joined the Marines, and in July 1969, the group officially dissolved. The Tanners later relocated to Oklahoma, where they formed a group called the Contagious Brothers -- Parker later signed on, and when they played Minot in 1978, the classic Embermen Five lineup reunited for their first live appearance in nearly a decade. In 2002 the Break-A-Way label compiled their vintage singles on the album Fire in Their Hearts, bolstering the package with live material recorded at the Minot Air Force Base in early 1968.

The Quiet Five - When The Morning Sun Dries The Dew (1965-67)

The Quiet Five - When The Morning Sun Dries The Dew (1965-67)


 Biography by Richie Unterberger
One of the more unknown British Invasion bands of the mid-'60s to make the lower reaches of the U.K. charts, the Quiet Five released half a dozen singles in 1965-1967 (one in the U.S. only) in various styles showcasing their accomplished vocal harmonies. The best of these, their debut, "When the Morning Sun Dries the Dew," was written by guitarist/singer Kris Ife for Marianne Faithfull. While its haunting folkiness would have been appropriate for Faithfull's early approach, the Quiet Five ended up releasing it themselves, and it did nudge just inside the British Top 50. So did a subsequent cover of Simon & Garfunkel's "Homeward Bound," but that was effectively wiped out when the original version went into the U.K. Top Ten. Other singles found the group working in several formats, including rocked-up pop standards, reasonably convincing Merseybeat-influenced rock, and tunes showing the vocal harmony influence of American acts such as the Beach Boys. Perhaps, like some other such groups with accomplished and flexible vocal harmonies, they were a little too versatile. Some of their work had fleeting similarities to other pop-oriented acts of the British Invasion, such as the Fortunes, Peter & Gordon, and the Tremeloes, but they never established too strong an identity of their own. Nor, unfortunately, did they record too many of their own songs, despite the ability shown by Kris Ife on some of their tracks and some of Ife's post-Quiet Five work.

When the Morning Sun Dries the DewThe Quiet Five formed in the early '60s in London, first as the Trebletones before changing their name to the Vikings. As the Vikings, they did manage one side of a 45 single, the instrumental "Space Walk," whose title was changed to "Gemini" when it was eventually issued by Columbia. The Vikings became the Quiet Five, however, in 1964 when they became the backing band for singer Patrick Dane, replacing another group that had used the Quiet Five name. After some personnel changes, the Quiet Five split from Dane to go out on their own, signing with Parlophone, where they were produced by Ron Richards (who also handled the Hollies). As was appropriate considering that "When the Morning Sun Dries the Dew" had been penned for Marianne Faithfull, they also backed Faithfull on a 1965 EP, with Faithfull's guitarist Jon Mark also participating. Though they toured with the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Donovan, the Byrds, and the Ronettes, the Quiet Five never had a big-selling disc. Ife left the group in 1967 to record as a solo act with MGM, and is best known for the late-'60s single on which he covered Joe South's "Hush," as this was the version that inspired the big cover hit of the same song by Deep Purple. Both sides of all six of the Quiet Five singles, along with seven previously unreleased tracks, were compiled on the 2005 CD anthology When the Morning Sun Dries the Dew.

The Quiet Five - When The Morning Sun Dries The Dew (1965-67)



Both sides of all six of the singles issued by this obscure British band between 1965-1967 (including one released only in the U.S.) are on this compilation, which also presents seven previously unissued tracks. With their clean-cut, American-influenced vocal harmony sound, the Quiet Five weren't too comparable to many other British Invasion bands; perhaps the Fortunes and Peter & Gordon, a bit, though they were earthier than the Fortunes and not as folky as Peter & Gordon. The influences of the Beach Boys and Merseybeat are also felt to varying degrees. While the material is uneven, and isn't stunning, it's a pretty respectable slant on the more lightweight side of the mid-'60s British Invasion. Certainly their moody, folky debut single, "When the Morning Sun Dries the Dew," is a highlight, akin to Peter & Gordon in their more serious moods, making one wish Quiet Five singer/guitarist Kris Ife had penned more of the group's releases. The more energetic B-sides "Tomorrow I'll Be Gone" (a quite tough Merseybeat-flavored number) and the soul-pop-Mersey hybrid "Let's Talk It Over" are also quite satisfying, if not typical of the approach the band usually took. Indeed, the Quiet Five's versatility sometimes worked against rather than for them, as they also delved into unimpressive updates of standards, limpid pop, and a not so hot cover of the fine Rolling Stones LP track "I Am Waiting." Still, there are more enjoyable cuts here than duds, including an uncharacteristically fuzzy stomper with lead vocals by P.J. Proby, "Didn't Give a Damn," among the unreleased items. Overall, it's a pleasantly worthwhile compilation, and recommended to British Invasion collectors trying to discover something new from the vaults, as the Quiet Five are a band about which even many serious British Invasion fans might remain unaware.

The Arkay IV - When We Was Younger... Than Yesterday

The Arkay IV - When We Was Younger... Than Yesterday


The Arkay IV is the best known "unknown" band in the history of Rock and Roll. Their recordings have been a hot items with collectors for more than 30 years. The 1996 Tom Hank's movie That Thing You Do! set in Erie, PA during the early 1960's is loosely based on the Arkay IV. 

The group was started in Erie, PA in 1963 by Skip Niebauer, Bill Arnold & John Nicotra. After graduating from High School Bill left for military service and was replaced by Bob Sustak who was soon drafted into the army and was replaced by Dave Massello and Tom Brocki. This formed the core of the group from 1964 to 1969. 

The group went through several personal changes due primarily to the military draft for the Vietnam War. Besides those mentioned above the players included: Bill Adleff, Mark Fainstein, Vil Stomers, Bill Kirby, Jon Ims, Mike Redicliff and Doug Phillips.

During the 1960's the Arkay IV was one of the top regional acts in the Cleveland-Buffalo-Pittsburgh triangle.

The original Arkay IV broke up in 1971.
