Plastic Magic podcast #43 November 15, 2009

hey kids, this episode was dedicated to garage, psych, hard rock groups from Texas in the early years of 1966-1971. On this show you will hear: LOST AND FOUND, THE ZAKARY THAKS, THE MOVING SIDEWALKS (featuring a young Billy Gibbons who later formed ZZ TOP), BLOODROCK, THE RED CRAYOLA, MOUSE AND THE TRAPS, THE BUBBLE PUPPY, JOSEFUS, THE GOLDEN DAWN, KENNY AND THE KASUALS, and of course THE 13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS many of these groups were originally on the legendary INTERNATIONAL ARTIST label of Houston TX, Some are obscure and are only found 60's comps. There is alot of info on these groups in a wonderful article I read in the fantastic Shindig! magazine (vol. 2 issue 7 from nov.-dec 2008) if you would like to do any further research, there is also a link to Shindig! on your left.
