The history of Spooky Tooth can be traced back to the Ramrods, who formed in 1960, and the V.I.P.s, who formed in 1963.

The V.I.P.s were quite successful, with a reasonable back catalogue of r'n'b style recordings, and were performing a large gig one night when Chas Chandler, manager of the Animals asked the band if they would allow his new up-and-coming guitar hero some stage space with them.

They were not to know that they were giving Jimi Hendrix his very first exposure, as they played along with his version of Hey Joe.

The band took an altogether wierd direction, as appropriate for the swinging, psychedelic sixties, recording an album entitled "Supernatural Fairy Tales" as Art in 1967. Members of Art teamed up with graphics company Hapshash and the Coloured Coat, who designed most of the really funky psychedlic posters at the time for acts like Pink Floyd, giving themselves the temporary

SPOOKY TOOTH Spooky Two

Warthur
On Spooky Two, Spooky Tooth offer a gritty organ and guitar-driven sound which charts a course that meanders between the evocative prog-leaning proto-metal of Deep Purple or Atomic Rooster on the one hand and the brash, bluesy hard rock of the Faces on the other. Unlike the classics of those bands, however, it doesn't quite elevate itself beyond the aesthetic of its time and the album never quite catches fire; although all of the songs on here are good, if you've got an appreciable 1970s hard rock collection you've probably heard a lot of the tricks on here done better by other artists.

The absolute best and most original song on here is Better By You, Better Than Me, and to be honest the Judas Priest cover version of that number absolutely blows the original out of the water. Doubtless innovative on release, Spooky Two doesn't quite endure the test of time, though if you are feeling nostalgic and want to evoke the feel of the early 1970s it's an effective way to accomplish that.
