Rock


A garage rock combo from Muscatine, IA, who cut only one single, "Psychedelic Siren" (1967), which was rediscovered by collectors upon its inclusion on the Psychedelic Unknowns anthology in the early '80s. They were a more or less average garage band of the time, led by songwriter, organist, and vocalist Al Collins, who -- under the name Max Allan Collins -- later became one of the writers of the Dick Tracy comic strip. In the early '70s they evolved into the equally obscure Rox under the leadership of Bruce Peters, and pursued a more pop-oriented direction that recalled the late-'60s Beach Boys and early Raspberries. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi
