Friday Freak Flag Flying ~ “Dead Man” ~ Josefus

It’s too bad this band only produced three albums. Hookah was their own label and that was the problem. With anything no major label to market you, no money and then were left out cold. In reality they had poor management and it cost them a big career.

But cold was anything but this band was. This Texas-based underground band that had formed in the late 60s smoked. The blazed their way through the south and did make a big enough impression to be the opening acts to some very big names. Sadly they just wouldn’t become one of them. Not for lack of talent that’s for certain.

1969 “Get Off My Case”. “Dead Man” 70′ was their second and they would only produce one more their third, “Josefus” 70′ before disbanding for good.
