It's May 24th, 2013 And You're in a Rad Garage Band - The King Bees

"On Your Way Down The Drain" is a fantastic fuck-you song, perhaps my fave.

Although the New York group the King Bees sound like teens in a garage here, they were in fact a working blues band. In late '66, after three singles and no breakthrough, they split; members Danny Kortchmar (gtr) and Joel O'Brian joined James Taylor's Flying Machine, while organist John McDuffy replaced Al Kooper in the Blues Project.
