Majic Ship

Arising out of adolescent garage band the Primitives, which played primitive covers of British Invasion tunes, the New Primitives came together in New York City in 1966, originally composed of a group of high school friends: Ray Rifice (guitar), Tommy Nikosy (guitar), Rob Buckman (drums), and Mike Garrigan (vocals). Soon, the band increased to a group of five with the addition of bassist/organist Gus Riozzi. They kept a busy performance schedule throughout the next few years when their high school commitments allowed it. In 1968, Rifice left the band to attend college, but at about the same time, former '50s crooner turned manager Johnny Mann saw the band live and promised to get them a recording contract. Philip Polimeni replaced Rifice on lead guitar, and the New Primitives became Majic Ship. Mann introduced the band to the Tokens, who produced their first single, "Night Time Music." It became a local hit, even gaining the band some national airplay, as did a second single, "Hummin." After much touring and a couple more singles, Majic Ship found their way to a studio to record their self-titled debut album in the summer of 1969. They melded hard rock, pop, and psychedelia in a way similar to fellow New Yorkers Vanilla Fudge. The band continued on for the next couple of years with plans to record a second album, but those plans were nixed when the band's shared house in Staten Island burned to the ground in 1971, taking with it virtually all their recording equipment and instruments. Without any insurance, the bandmembers called it quits. ~ Stanton Swihart, Rovi

great stuff. hear a lot of this from only one local station know to hire burn outs but their ratings were up there!
It's sad that music like this was never looked upon or seen as having commercial viability. Instead, mediocrity in music is and has been a standard in the States with the focus remaining on mainstream viability to sell songs/music. Still no money for burgeoning artists and now fewer A&R people to find talent or help build an artist's reputation without the possibility of getting screwed.
Stan his younger brother has been a great drummer for nearly forty years now. Danny Sirtak was even better! You are loved and missed Danny! R.I.P.
Bums me out to think of all the great music lost when artists like Majic hit hard times and quit. I can't imagine what these musicians might have given to the world of rock. I had a cousin who was in a band called The Clouds. They were recording, and touring Africa in 1970. Their manager ran off with the cash left them stranded in Africa. Sold their equipment to get home. He drowned a month later at 18. His younger brother still has the drum set he ordered yet never got before he passed. Stan i

The lead singer appears to have been influenced by Phil Ochs. That's not a bad thing at all.
