Here they come....walkin' down the street...
Named after the creepy-crawly 'Thingmaker' Mold Pak toys from the 60's, Los Creeple Peeple played only one kind of music: loud & loose 60's garage-punk.The young lads had alot of talent. Russell and Christof were previously in the great Bay-area band, The Horseless Headmen, and Matt had come from The Organ Grynders out of Richmond, Va. All together, Los Creeple Peeple had a wild authentic look and live sound, but were unable to reach their full potential, as the band snuffed out quickly after only playing for about a year (1987-1988). Leaving only various photos and one hard-to-find 'demo' cassette tape and a few miscellaneous live tapes a few people have managed to keep.
But here! Digitized off my copy of the "demo-tape" - recorded live in their rehearsal space, in all their mop-topped, beatle-booted, raucous glory:
5 Songs: Forgotten and unheard for 26 years...
Los Creeple Peeple
- Russell Quan - Drums
- Trent Ruane - Keyboards
- Christof Certik - Guitar
- Matt Brown - Lead Vocals, harp, tambourine
- Jules Sabenorio - Bass
Los Creeple Peeple only played in the Bay Area - Berkeley and San Francisco. (*But there was that one crazy mod show in San Jose!)They were good pals with and played many shows with The Birminghams, which featured a young Bart Davenport (The Loved Ones) and future CAKE guitarist, Xan. They played what you would expect - covers of their obscure 60's punk songs of course! They did manage to knock out 2-3 originals tunes. Two are featured here.
