The Blues Magoos

The Blues Magoos, street kids from the Bronx, were regu-lars at the Café Wha on MacDougal Street and the Nite Owl Café in the Village before Mercury signed them. The Magoos — Ralph Scala, vocals, organ; Ron Gilbert, bass; Geoff Daking, drums; Mike Esposito, lead guitar; Peppy Thielhelm, rhythm guitar and vocals — notched up hit singles, notably '(We Ain't Got) Nothing Yet' — a No. 5 in 1966 —and 'There's A Chance We Can Make It', and had two good selling albums Psychedelic Lollipop (the first use of the word in an album title — complete with the 'play at high volume' tag) and Electric Comic Book (1967).

They really knew how to hype. The second album contained a little comic book full of offers like the 'Psyche-de-lite' to turn you on while you played the album, itself 'a Blues Magoos Con-cert in your own home'. But unless seen on stage, the impact of the Vidal Sassoon hairstyles and Diana Dew-designed electric suits was missed. Their music, live or on record, was largely forgettable, rampant and discordant, reaching a new low point on Basic Blues Magoos, which featured a much changed group, and the electronic storm on Gulf Coast Blues (ABC, 1970), after which the group briefly mellowed their sound before disappearing.
