The New York-based Druids of Stonehenge (frontman Dave Budge, guitarists Carl Hauser and Bill Tracy, bassist Tom Workman and drummer Steve Tindall) exemplified both the surly essence of teen garage-punk and the experimental spirit of psychedelia. The band formed in 1965 as a scrappy, R&B-influenced teen combo in the Rolling Stones/Pretty Things mold. (This period is documented on the earlier Sundazed vinyl EP The Druids of Stonehenge.) By 1968, the Druids had embraced psychedelia, relocated to the West Coast andesigned with the UNI label.

The Druids of Stonehenge unveiled their retooled'sound with Creation, which revealed the quintet to be one of the toughest, most imaginative outfits of its era, maintaining both a forceful, earthy edge and an ethereal air of mystery. Those qualities were manifested in Budge's snarling, Jaggeresque vocals and the band's tense, punchy playing, which elevated'such memorable originals as "Six Feet Down," "Earthless" and "Pale Dream," as well as their distinctive reworkings of Bob Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue," Love's "Signed D.C." and screamin' Jay Hawkins' "I Put a Spell on You."

      The unearthly, savage, Rolling Stones/Pretty Things-inspired treatment of R&B classics as interpreted by the Druids of Stonehenge on SUNDAZED ten-inch vinyl is a phenomenon that quite simply has to be heard to be believed. When frontman David Budge cuts loose on such familiar ‘60s staples as “Who Do You Love,” “I Put A Spell On You,” “Pretty Thing” and “Bald Headed Woman,” it’s almost as though he’s being strangled by Bo Diddley’s “cobra snake necktie” with eyes popping, cartoon-like, out of...
