"The Syndicate of Sound was an American garage band originally from San Jose, California, the band had an edgy style.... In an attempt to sustain their success, the band released singles, like "Keep It Up" but none of them charted. By this time John Duckworth had been drafted into the U.S Army and was replaced by Carl Scott on drums, and John Sharkey had left the group soon after "Mary" was released. After another single "Brown Paper Bag" reached No. 73 on 25 April 1970, the group disbanded...."

Interesting for it’s sardonic words and upbeat delivery. I’m surprised there was no female version of this song. Also, I wonder if there was real-life inspiration.

Heard it before but never paid much attention.
It's actually a very catchy song and a cool video. Now it will be one of those special songs that gets turned up when I'm fortunate enough to catch it on the radio. Thanks.

Brings back memories of KRLA 1110 AM in So Cal, they used to put out some great compilation albums with a lot of songs like this.

Can we start requiring brainless posters to explain why they are posting irrelevant crap?

Where have you been? There is a contest among these posters who can start the most threads. This is the main reason behind all the duplicate, triplicate threads about the most trivial matters. It is a secret contest in that the thread starters themselves without any judges consider themselves “winners” by posting these unneeded, irrelevant threads. It is a point of foolish pride to start a thread! That’s my interpretation. Go figure.

In 1964, KRLA was my favorite station but by 1966, my first choice was Boss Radio 93 KHJ. Nonetheless, my brother preferred KRLA.

Threads such as this show how culturally diverse Freepers are. Not all conservatives prefer to listen to harpsichord music while sipping sherry.

Here’s one I’ve always liked that few have heard of, it’s basically early garage rock, mid-60’s from Seattle, woefully unappreciated. Compare their sound to The Black Keys of today.

The Sonics - “Have Love, Will Travel”

I still have the 45 around here somewhere.
I played it over and over again until it was well grooved.

Thanks for posting this. Wish I could say this brought back fond memories but back in 1966 when this song was popular, I was just getting out of diapers and learning how to eat with a fork.

Good song though. Those guys looked like they were having fun.

Did anybody notice how that seagull flew by in the background at around the 1:22 mark of that video? I'm thinking that was totally unscripted but it worked! That seagull was pretty awesome.

They WERE having fun weren’t they?
His smarmy chuckles - played and recorded perfectly for the subject matter of the song.
I thought the “gurlz version” (what? @ 20 yrs. later?) highlighted an interesting change in styles...
- it was harder, edgier, angrier - though the girl tried to carry off the chuckle, the music was fuller (jmo)
- the videography difference. Notice how the camera becomes part of the song in the later version. It jerks the viewer around, never letting us ‘settle’ on any one scene. I do not like that style. It’s distracting. Unnecessary. Like looking through ADHD eyes.

Though technically ‘cruder’ I suppose, the earlier version had a lighter innocence to it (yes, and a seagull!). It was better...

Wow! Clearly a Motown job, but was it Berry Gordy’s label, or his boys HD&H going roque? By then Motown was in L.A., is that where it was recorded? I gotta say, you do find some gems.

No, HD&H weren't going rogue. VIP Records was a Motown subsidiary on the West Coast which became "a clearing house for records Motown didn’t know what to do with." These would probably include records by Chris Clark, who hails from Santa Cruz, Calif.--which, in terms of culture and environment, is about as far from Detroit as you can get (and I've been to both places).

You can read more on the VIP label over at Motwon Junkies.

Motown moved to LA in 1972. Sometime afterwards, Pat Boone, of all people, signed with the label.

Berry Gordy admitted (later) about moving to L.A., as early as in 1965, and some of the big hits by the Four Tops were recorded there, and not as commonly thought in Detroit. The 1972 move is the stuff of print the legend.

I didn’t know they were from San Jose, but that song hit hard in Southern California.

It's been over six months since this got posted but the video of this song still runs through my mind often. The band playing their hit song out on a pier during the summer of 1966. The first few seconds of the video remind me of the opening to the "Gilligan's Island" TV show for some reason.

But the thing that stuck in my mind most was that seagull that flew into the background at around the 1:22 mark of the video.

Of all the billions of seagulls that ever lived, this one seagull was fated to have a spot appearance in a legendary video. That seagull has been dead for decades now but I wonder why that seagull was in such a hurry on such a perfect summer day at the beach. Maybe it spotted a crab or a clam. We will never know. But it was absolutely perfect how that seagull flew in that particular spot at that particular point in time.

That seagull is famous. Even more famous than Jonathan Livingston Seagull, in my opinion.
