RARE BEAT - GARAGE ROCK AND PSYCHEDELIC
WE THE PEOPLE
Records are not for sale - For your viewing pleasure only

This highly regarded band hailed from Orlando, Florida, and despite their lack of national success at the time are nowadays regarded in the same league as The Chocolate Watchband, Standells, Music Machine etc. The band were formed out of two acts - the Trademarks and Offbeets, at the suggestion of Ron Dillman, who managed both bands. Within a week of their first meeting in early 1966, they were recording their first 45, "My Brother, The Man". Whilst their first two 45s contained punchy psychedelic rockers, "He Doesn't Go About It Right" contains a dollop of Kinks style humor, and "St. John's Shop" is a beautiful slow ballad. All were big regional hits in Florida and Tennessee, but under threat of the draft, and frustrated by the lack of national success, Wayne Proctor quit early in 1967. With Wayne pursuing a career in song-writing, the group continued, although Lee Ferguson was then drafted and replaced by Terry Cox from "Those Four Guys". Tom Talton too left the group in 1968 and later resurfaced with Tom Wynn in "Cowboy". We The People soldiered on for a while with guitarist Carl Chambers and finally Skip Skinner, but they eventually called it a halt in 1970.
