THE TIKI'S (SOMEBODY'S SON)

IS THIS JOEY SHITHEAD FROM D.O.A. SCREAMING FOR SOME GARAGE BAND ? NO THIS IS THE TIKIS FROM 1966. NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH THE BAY AREA COMBO WHO BECAME HARPERS BIZARRE, THESE TIKIS WERE POPULAR IN THE SOUTHEASTERN REGION OF THE STATES, AND ALSO HAD RELEASES ON THE MINARET AND ASCOT LABELS. THEY MAY WELL HAVE ORIGINATED FROM NASHVILLE, WHERE SOMEBODY'S SON WRITTEN BY COUNTRY STAR RONNIE SELF, WAS RECORDED. I THINK THIS GUY'S VOICE AND THE LYRICAL CONTENT OF SOMEBODY'S SON ARE PRETTY HEAVY FOR 1966 . I TOOK THIS INFO FROM THE LINER NOTES OF THE I TURNED INTO A HELIUM BALLOON COMP, WHICH IF YOU CAN STILL FIND IT, THERES ALLOT OF CLASSIC RECORDS ON THEIR INCLUDING THIS ONE.
