A 45 A Day (Day 12)

Day 12

I hear a lot of people moaning about how music & the music industry has changed, & indeed it has, I think it’s termed as “progress”. When you look at the manufactured bands being churned out by reality shows, this really is no new concept & it maybe surprising to know that the 45 I’ve gone for today, is a manufactured band for the 60’s. Paul A. Rothchild & Frazier Mohawk had already been instrumental in helping form Buffalo Springfield, so they decided to put another group together, & so Rhinoceros was born. “Apricot Brandy” is a great piece of hard bluesy rock, with heavy drums, a dirty fuzz guitar riff & some cool hammond abuse thrown in for good measure, this was apparently used as a BBC Radio theme tune.
