THE EX-CELS - 'Like A Dream' / 'Sorrow And Pain' (Coral 62482) April 1966
'Like A Dream' has a symplistic but memorable beat and sounds like a Troggs record. I haven't been able to find out much about the band other than the following:
According to Fuzz, Acid And Flowers The Ex-Cels were from Gloversville, New York. However, 'Like A Dream' was compiled on Sixties Rebellion Volume 1 and they suggested a Californian location.
'Sorrow And Pain' was listed as a 'DJ Spotlight' on the KAMP 1430 AM, El Centro Top 30 Survey on 13th April 1966. So maybe this is where the California connection came from.
Anyone know for sure?
UPDATE 26/09/11: Local rock historian Mike Johnson sent in some information about The Ex-Cels. He confirmed that they hailed from Gloversville, NY and were previously known as The Ashley Brothers.
