WAYNE PAV & The ORPHUNS - 'Oh Mona'/'Bring It On Home' (Pav Records 650) 1967
According to FA&F and confirmed in issue 3 of 'Lost and Found' this outfit hailed from Chicago and cut this record sometime in 1967. Both sides are GREAT but show just how much they were out of touch with what was happening in '67. The music on offer harks back to the Invasion sounds of 1964/65.
The Bo Diddley stomper 'Mona' titled on this disc 'Oh Mona' is given the teen garage treatment with an edgy mix, gruff vocals and some inept but killer guitar. The other side 'Bring It On Home' is a faithfull rendition of the Sam Cooke hit but The Orphuns are clearly more influenced by the version by The Animals.
This was the group's second and last 45.
