Randy California-Kapt. Kopter and His (Fabulous) Twirly Birds

This one might not be for the indie rockers. Totally a heavy 70s jam record. You know Randy as the guitar player in Spirit. After Spirit put out Dr. Sardonicus they broke up and Randy started this band. Jimi Hendrix had just died (a great friend of Randy's) and it hit him pretty hard which explains the darker stuff on this record. Noel Redding even plays on it and is credited on the back as 'Clit McTorius'.

All around, a pretty solid record with some boring-ish too long shit on the second side. The first few tracks and the cover of 'Rain' are definitely worth the download. This record was playing quite a bit during the summer and I'm breaking it back out. Join me.
