The Marshmallow Overcoat (more recently known as The Overcoat) is a quartet formed at the height of the boom in the "paisley underground." Based in Tucscon, Arizona, the group made a convincing enough case for itself, with its Kinks and Yardbirds-influenced originals and covers, that it made it as far as stages across the United States, Canada, and western Europe, charting high on some college radio listings in the process. They recorded a series singles, EPs, and LPs for Dionysus Records in Los Angeles. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi
