SONG OF THE DAY The Craig – I Must Be Mad

The Craig were a garage-rock, mod-style band from Birmingham who came together in the mid 60’s.

The group developed from R&B line-up, The King Bees (formerly The Castaways) and consisted of members Carl Palmer on drums ( who later became a member of prog-rock superstars, Emerson, Lake & Palmer), Jeff Brown on lead vocals, Richard King on guitar and Len Cox on bass.

I Must Be Mad was a single released in 1966 on Fontana Records which is now regarded by many as one of the earliest and best British psychedelic/rock tracks of the 1960’s.  One listen and you will see why! Built upon a basic yet effective heavy guitar and bass riff, the recording featured high-energy bluesy vocals and rocking drums to match! Check it out above.
