The Syndicate of Sound was an American garage band that existed between 1965 and 1970. Originally from San Jose, California. The group was formed from the combination of two teen bands, (The Pharaohs and The Aristocrats). The Syndicate of Sound rapidly became popular in the San Jose area, and the next year won a "Battle of the Bands" competition against about 100 groups including The Golliwogs (later Creedence Clearwater Revival). The prize was a recording session with Del-Fi Records, but the resulting single "Prepare For Love" was unsuccessful. Baskin and Gonzalez continued to write new material, and came up with "Little Girl". It became a regional hit after San Jose radio stations latched onto it, attracting the attention of executives at Bell Records in New York, who released it nationally and offered the group a contract for an album. They started a national tour appearing with other hit acts such as The Young Rascals, The Yardbirds, and The Rolling Stones. In an attempt to sustain their success, the band released three more singles, but none charted. Duckworth was then drafted, other members began to drop out, and the group, after "Brown Paper Bag" reached No. 73 on 25 April 1970, disbanded. Baskin worked as a studio musician and arranger in Hollywood before turning to country music later in the decade. In 1990, Baskin, Gonzalez and Duckworth reformed the band, which continues to perform occasionally. In 2006, the Syndicate of Sound was in the first class of inductees into the San Jose Rocks Hall of Fame.
