Biography

Illinois band’s killer and ultra rare album from 1972. An amazing blast of heavy psychedelic, blues based acid rock, which includes a killer cover of The Kinks’ “I’m Not Like Anybody Else” complete with mind melting lead guitar work.

“Outcast” is filled with a really angry teenage angst whilst the bands version of “Restrictions” has some amazing twin wah- wah acid guitar. The band were included on the legendary ‘Endless Journey’ comps and rightly so…

The band recorded the material for their album in Chicago during 1968 and 1969, although it was not released until 1972. They do not appear to have released any 45s at all.

Practice Sessions is a reissue of their album but with additional tracks. Most of their material is very bluesy, as one might expect for a Chicago band of this era and to appreciate their music you’ll need to be a fan of the blues.(Freak Emporium and Borderline Books).

This is a VERY good blues rock band from Urbana Illinois. My Brother Michael Powers played drums. Way ahead of there time, for 1969. Lasting tributes is availible on cd. Rock on George, Gary, Tabe, and James Michael Powers! PEACE!

Finchley Boys:
George Faber: vocal, harp
Garret Oostdyk: guitar
J.Michael Powers: drums and percussion
Tabe: Bass

They reunited for a one-off show in Champaign, Illinois on July 10th, 2010.

    Typical all the way, not actually an excellent album (4 stars), but very good all the way!

    hmm. the psych stuff on everlasting tributes is rad, but the non-psych songs falter a bit. worth checking out, though.
