Spike Drivers - Often I Wonder Add Video

The band formed in Detroit, Michigan in 1965 with Mary Carolbrown-vocals, Sid Brown-guitar, Ted Lucas-guitar and vocals, Richard Keelan-guitar, and drummer Steve Booker. Larry Cruise replaced Steve Booker in late 1965. The name of the band came from a song by Mississippi John Hurt called the Spikedriver Blues. Ted Lucas left the band in 1967 with Richard Keelan,forming The Misty Wizards. This was one of two singles, recorded in New York in 1966.The other being "Strange Mysterious Sounds".The latter has vocals sounding remarkably like John Cale with a touch of Kevin Ayers. "Often I Wonder" is regarded as one of the first truly psychedelic recordings but also one of the least known. A mixture of Eastern influences and psych tinged folk-rock characterises their music which sounds West Coast.
