Members: Jerry Roslie, Larry Parypa, Andy Parypa, Rob Lind, and Bob Bennett

Proto-punk garage rock band formed 1963 in Tacoma, WA. They played in several local dance halls and in high schools, until [a=Buck Ormsby], bass player of The [a=Wailers], discovered them. They recorded two LPs with Ormsby that were released in 1965. They scored some minor hits before disbanding in 1967.

They're renowned for their crude and brutal sound, for Jerry Roslie's lyrics (hinting at drugs, evil women and disturbing mental states) and screams.

Line-up:

- Jerry Roslie: organ, piano, lead vocals

- Andy Parypa: bass guitar

- Larry Parypa: lead guitar, vocals

- Rob Lind: saxophone, vocals, harmonica

- Bob Bennett: drums
