Wizard band entertains parents.

Even though the tint is a little dark, its got some great, rouge-y 60s color and pattern.  I love her violet shimming dress and his wizard cape. 

Not many people know about The Seeds.  I stumbled across them one day years ago looking up some other 60s garage bands... The Seeds are now one of my favorites.  The lead singer Sky Saxon has got a swingin' name and that Mick Jagger devil-may-care swagger, while the keyboardist always looks like a vampire from the Revolutionary War era.
Though I don't know much about what happened to the group post-60s, I know that in 1973 Sky Saxon joined a Hollywood Hills cult lead by a man named Yawhowha (a Hollywood health food restauranteer and member of a band called Ya Who Ha 13,) and was renamed Sunshine Arlick.  He unexpectantly died in 2009 and his cause of death hasn't been issued.

This song, Pushin' Too Hard was one of their best known and was named one of rock's 500 most influencial by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  This clip is part of an episode from the short-lived TV show called 'The Mother-in-law" (1967-9).  Parents just don't understand.

"We hope you like it... We think its gassy."
