    Another song that I can't find anywhere on the Net (except for iTunes) is this little gem. It sounds like pure mid-60's pop-rock, but it's from 1986: "The United States of Existence."

    The birth of Rap?


    A lot has been said about this obscure record, "Spazz" -- by "The Elastik Band", from a major label (Atco) and reissued on a few 60's compilations.

    A "rap" or "hip-hop" kind of song in 1967?

    And the lyrics: "People gonna think you're spazz!" Offensive? Outrageous? Making fun of the disabled?

    No. The group leader and songwriter, David Cortopassi, says it was an anti-drug song. (Note the line "Some joker slips you LSD.")

    From "Music Dish" interview, 2007:
    "As a teenager living in California during the mid-sixties, there was considerable peer pressure to try drugs. It was a difficult situation to battle and most everyone was trying to get me high, which made me feel like an outsider and even more rebellious about it. So, while everyone seemed to be dropping acid and eating magic mushrooms, I wrote "Spazz" as an anti-drug statement, never thinking it would be interpreted as anything else ...... Some blogs argue whether or not "Spazz" denotes the birth of rap."

    Hooz Blooz?


    Today's quiz question: Who made this recording?

    This group made Billboard's top 10 three times in the late 60's. But their singles never sounded anything like this lost gem from their last LP, made with a new set of band members in 1969. It's nine minutes of blues. The first two minutes are fast, funny and lighthearted; the rest is slow, heavy and serious.
