THE FANTASTIC ZOO - THIS CALLS FOR A CELEBRATION


THE FANTASTIC ZOO - 'Midnight Snack'/'This Calls For A Celebration' (Double Shot 105) November 1966

When The Fogcutters from Denver, Colorado relocated to Los Angeles sometime during 1966 they got a deal with the fledgling Hollywood label Double Shot who had just scored a big hit with 'Psychotic Reaction' by The Count Five.

But for some insane reason 'Midnight Snack' was deemed the potential hit and was thus The Fantastic Zoo's debut A-Side. The song is tedious after a couple of listens, pretty much a Lovin' Spoonful influenced novelty. Far superior is the flip 'This Calls For A Celebration' which perfectly encapsulates L.A folk rock merging with the new sound of psychedelia.
