Biography

This band formed in Marshalltown, Iowa in 1969 playing a form of hard-edged, drug-induced rock’n’roll. Their album was recorded in a basement studio in 1972 and just 50 copies were pressed on the Dragon label.

In 1973 they recorded some rough cuts for what was to be their second album, Meathook. Sadly the band fell apart before the album was completed but two of these previously unreleased tracks, Breakdown and Cat Black Claw, can now be heard on the Animus Ochlus retrospective album - which is not a straightforward reissue of Overdrive, as it omits some of the original material. Overdrive features some pretty fine and varied guitar work.

The opening cut, Plea From The Soul, has lots of fuzz and mouth harp; Uncle Jerry and Rock n Roll Man feature breckneck guitar work whilst by contrast Whiskey Took My Woman is slower and bluesy.
