Biography

There are at least two artists/bands that have used this name: an American psychedelic rock band and an Italian Black Metal band.

1. In 1963, Mal Robinson formed an instrumental group called The Impax. The band would only last for six months. Robinson then formed in quick succession, The Runaways and The Durations (an Anglo rhythm and blues band with horns). In February of 1966, Mal formed a folk-rock band, The Toads. The members of this group were Mal Robinson (12-String guitar and lead vocals)and Don Shuford (Bass guitar). No recordings were ever made by any of the aforementioned bands. brother of Sligar at Washburn University in Topeka was added to the group to play rhythm guitar. The Morning Dew began playing at high school dances, fraternity parties, and rehearsing in Sligar’s garage to hone their skills. Musical influences for The Morning Dew were groups such as The Lovin’ Spoonful, The Critters and The Cyrkle. In August of 1966, The Morning Dew traveled the thirty miles from Topeka to Lawrence to record a four-song demo at Audio House. Audio House was the same studio where local legends The Blue Things did many of their recordings. The Morning Dew recorded two cover songs and two original songs. “This Sportin’ Life” was a follow up hit by Ian Whitcomb to his smash hit, “You Turn Me On”, which became a staple of The Morning Dew’s live shows and they would re-record this song again two years later during the Fairyland Recording sessions of July-August, 1968.
