THE GUYS WHO CAME UP FROM DOWNSTAIRS - 'Growth'/'Nothing We Can Do!' (Disc-Guys 6836) 1968
'Growth' is a pounding fuzz and farfisa punk tune by a combo of teens with one of the worst group names of the 60s. They arrived at the name because they used to practice downstairs in the basement at drummer Chuck Farnum's house (natch)...
The Guys....hailed from Iowa and may have even been stars in their own street. The flip 'Nothing We Can Do!' is a jangly sad lament that could have been superb with some clattering tambourine.
Chuck Farnum (vocals/drums)
