And people thought that it was some magical mystery tour that had brought the mid 60s into another realm. So untrue for their were so many bands that had already made the music but didn’t have the name or the backing. Therefore they became sad casualties in the frantic ever-changing music business. Forming in Riverside, Ca. this band moved to London very early on before the British Invasion had even happened here. They had only released 7 singles (one album side to “Before The Dream Faded”) there before deported (long story via drafts, without working papers, more drafts, France, etc…) back to the States.
The group already had made their mark with “I Can Take You To The Sun” and “Children Of The Sun” in 66′ that would top the list of best psychedelics songs ever. Then they were forced to disband in 67′.
Creem magazine in their September 2004 review, wrote “The saga of the Misunderstood is one of the most unbelievable, heartbreaking, and unlikely stories in the entire history of rock.”
