The Kitchen Cinq : that means "five" in French

Yeah, this Amarillo Texas garage band is best known to Ichiban listeners for their brilliant interview by Harry Harrison on The In Sound. That's all I knew too, so when I saw this review by Lenny Helsing (The Thanes) of a newly-issued anthology CD, I went to YouTube to see what they sounded like in their early, garagey days.

The Kitchen Cinq - Please Come Back To Me (1966)

The Y'alls (pre-Kitchen Cinq) - Run For Your Life (1966)

According to this fascinating, detailed blog, they went on to record an album produced by Suzi Jane Hokom and featuring the Wrecking Crew on some of the instruments. Jim Parker, one of the guitarists, went on to a successful career in country music.
