ThunderMugs - On The Spot (1969, US, litegarageypsych, Akarma CDRip, single flac + cue, artwork)


 *** Reviewed by great fellow Adamus67 ***

The ThunderMugs were formed in the fall of 1965 in the Central California Coast town of San Luis Obispo. They became very popular and started touring all of the surrounding areas. Then selected Southern California gigs up and down the California Coast. Led by Jack Lutz, who was also the lead singer, the other members of the group, as it was recorded, were Bob Jonte on drums, Jerry Roy on Lead Guitar and Dennis Bassetti on Bass Guitar. The ThunderMugs performed a wide range of cover tunes of the popular groups as well a large amount of original material. All of the original material was written by Jack Lutz. At one of The ThunderMugs concerts in the Los Angeles/Hollywood, California area, the group met Bill Homes, the owner of All American Records and All American Productions. He was also the Manager and Producer of the Strawberry Alarm Clock. Bill Holmes was very impressed with The ThunderMugs and their fresh and different sound and decided to record them. A single 45rpm record consisting of "Motion Tree" and "Captain Midnight" was recorded at Original Sound Studio in Los Angeles/Hollywood in the summer of 1967 and record number AA-399 was released on the All American Record label. Both of these songs were written by Jack Lutz. The ThunderMugs continued to record and perform concert tours with such groups as The Merry-Go-Round, The Grass Roots, The Strawberry Alarm Clock, Poco and The Doors, plus many other well known groups, until late in 1969. At this date the members decided to disband to follow their own interest.

The album contains the band's entire output of thirteen songs which are mainly singles and unreleased recordings, together on one package, for the first time.
 Thank you so much Adam for that effort

Featuring 13 tracks of high distortion and vocal harmony, ON THE SPOT, the much sought-after, unreleased 1969 album from Los Angeles band Thunder Mugs, finally sees the light of day thanks to Akarma Records. The ThunderMugs were an obscure late-'60s band from California that recorded an album's worth of songs for Bill Holmes' All American label. Although the band never released a full album, they did manage a single: "Motion Tree" b/w "Captain Midnight." The band consisted of Dennis Bassetti (bass, vocals), Bob Jonte (drums), Jack Lutz (lead vocals, guitar, keyboards), and Jerry Roy (lead guitar, vocals). Composed by Lutz, the music on this album is predominantly soft psychedelic pop with good guitar, a few effects, and a very British sound. The material offers good period charm and features a few standout songs that, if released in Britain in 1967, could've easily become hits. This release on Akarma Records was officially licensed from All American and contains the band's entire output of 13 songs.
