It's May 16th, 2013 And You're in a Rad Garage Band - Sons Of Adam

"Feathered Fish" is my favorite track from LA garage band the Sons of Adam. It's a track written for them by Love's Arthur Lee!! DAG!

The Sons of Adam were originally from Baltimore, and were first known as the Fender IV. Once they arrived in LA they were renamed Sons of Adam by none other than Kim Fowley. In all they had a handful of solid singles and were mainstays on the Sunset Strip clubs; they also played the Northwest as Dewey Martin AKA Sir Raleigh's the Coupons. Oh, I'd reckon their other notable side, notable for the blistering leads, is "Saturday's Son." This group included the MIGHTY Randy Holden on guitar, prior to his time in the Other Half AND Blue Cheer. The Sons Of Adam also included Michael Stuart, who later played with Love. The group eventually became known as New Wing and had a couple 45s on Pentancle. The band was also featured in the Sidney Poitier and
Anne Bancroft movie The Slender Thread, they were the band on stage in the go-go club!!
