July

July started out in the early '60s as an Ealing-based skiffle act working under the name of the Playboys, and then metamorphosed into an R&B outfit known as the Thoughts and then the Tomcats, through which John "Speedy" Keen passed as a drummer. The final Tomcats lineup, which evolved out of an unrecorded band known as the Second Thoughts, found some success in Spain when they went to play a series of gigs in Madrid in 1966. They returned to England in 1968, the group's lineup consisting of Tony Duhig on guitar, John Field on flute and keyboards, Tom Newman on vocals, Alan James playing bass, and Chris Jackson on drums, and changed their name to July. The band lasted barely a year, leaving behind one of the most sought-after LPs of the British psychedelic boom (on the Major Minor label in England, and Epic Records in the U.S. and Canada). Their sound was a mix of trippy, lugubrious psychedelic meanderings, eerie, trippy vignettes ("Dandelion Seeds," "My Clown"), and strange, bright electric-acoustic textured tracks ("Friendly Man"), with some dazzling guitar workouts ("Crying Is for Writers") for good measure, all spiced with some elements of world music, courtesy of Tony Duhig (who has since come to regard July as an embarrassing element in his résumé). Their first single, "My Clown" b/w "Dandelion Seeds," has come to be considered a classic piece of psychedelia, while the album is just plain collectable, despite some shortcomings. The band separated in 1969, with Duhig moving on to Jade Warrior, Newman becoming a well-respected engineer, with Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells to his credit, and bassist Alan James later working with Cat Stevens and Kevin Coyne, among others. Of the various reissues, Bam-Caruso's 1987 Dandelion Seeds is the most accessible, with Essex's The Second of July consisting of previously unissued recordings from 1967. ~ Bruce Eder & Steven McDonald, Rovi

JADE WARRIOR...FL O A T I N G WORLDS, WAVES, KITES, RELEASED, JADE WARRIOR, LAST AUTUMN'S DREAMS. ALL BY THE SAME 2 GUYS. TRAPPED ON A DESSERT ISLAND, I'D PICK THEM.
at 56 years old this is what it is allabout for me dandelion seed is so so good it is what i search for in music .cant believe it took so long for me to hear it..but such a treat.such talent.such stile.waycoo l .
This is the best band I have found out of the 1960s that no one has heard of. Sounds like a mix of the dark side of The Beatles, the early Pink Floyd, and Jimmy Page-era Yardbirds. Genius. According to the CD booklet, the entire album was recorded on the same tape machines as Sgt Pepper's... and PF's Piper. It's got that sound, a true lost gem. It's their one and only album release, and like the dandelion seed, they were gone.
Ahoy there!
