SONG OF THE DAY Fifty Foot Hose – Rose


San Francisco band Fifty Foot Hose originally formed in the late 1960’s and were one of the first bands of their time to fuse rock and experimental electronica into their music.  By combining the contemporary sounds of rock with electronic instruments and avant-garde ideas, their compositions were fresh and their sound pioneering.

Their first record was released in 1967 and was titled ‘Cauldron’, this album was quite notable in that it featured a variety of homemade synths, all made by bassist Louis ‘Cork’ Marcheschi.  Today’s song features on their debut and is a psychedelic wilderness of sassy, laid back and jazzy rock.
