THE HUMAN BEINGZ - SPIDER MAN


THE HUMAN BEINGZ - 'Hey Joe'/''Spider Man' (Elysian Records 820F-3376) 1966

The Human Beingz hailed from Youngstown, Ohio and hit the big time with a version of 'Nobody But Me'. Now that song quite rightly gets it's acclaim and came to my attention via Lenny Kaye's Nuggets LP in the early 80s.

But what did the group have to offer before their hit record? Well, they released a couple of well received 45s on local labels and in 1966 came up with 'Spider Man', a terrific folk jangler written by T.J. Voithofer of The Counts. Absolute genius.

The other side has The Human Beingz performing the folk rock standard 'Hey Joe'.

Line-up:
Mel Pachuta (bass)
Dick Belley (lead guitar-lead vocals)
Mike Tatman (drums)
Ting Markulin (rhythm guitar)

  1. This almost sounds like 80s jangle (that's meant a compliment, btw.) Once again, EXPO67 delivers the goods...

  2. I know what you mean. The Barracudas got a similar sound on their janglers from the LP 'Mean Time'
