Album: The Seeds
. . .
The Seeds came from the same mid-60s Los Angeles scene that also produced The Byrds, Love, The Doors and Buffalo Springfield. However, unlike Roger McGuinn, Arthur Lee, Jim Morrison and Stephen Stills/Neil Young, the principal songwriter and lead singer of the Seeds — the awesomely named Sky Saxon — didn’t have any major artistic pretensions.
But like all of the above, The Seeds kicked out some absolutely fantastic singles, the best of which was their 1965 garage-raver, “Pushin’ Too Hard,” which comes roaring out of the gate driven by Rick Andridge’s double-time drums, Jan Savage’s guitar and Darryl Hooper’s keyboards. Over all of this forward momentum, Saxon is snarling at some poor girl.
