The Seeds - s/t 1966

The ever-popular Seeds were an American rock band. The group, whose repertoire spread between Garage Rock and Acid Rock are considered an influential Proto-Punk band. Lead singer Sky Saxon had a music career that went back to pre-Beatles days, when he recorded a few 45's as Richie Marsh. Born in Salt Lake City he was based in Los Angeles in the 1960's. The Seeds were formed in 1965 with Saxon joining by replying to an advertisement. Keyboardist Darryl Hooper was a major factor in the bands sound; the band was first to utilize keyboard bass. Guitarists Jan Savage and Jeremy Levine with drummer Rick Andridge completed the original quintet. Although Sky Saxon is usually credited as bass player, he never actually played on any Seeds recordings. That duty was left to a session musician.
