One hand in the darkness

Früt Of The Loom was a Detroit psychedelic band that started in 1966 to sometime in the early Seventies. The band didn’t record much, one self released 45 and two LPs that came out in 1971 and 1972, after the name had been shortened to Früt. I’ve never heard the LPs, the 45 though is pretty good.

Who knows how a copy of that 45 (on Loom Records) got from Detroit to a North Alabama flea market. It got banged up on the trip though, there’s a lot of dirt and scratches. I’d like to find a clean copy. One side has been re-issued on a comp. The other hasn’t. Both songs are pretty good though.

I tried to find out more about Früt Of The Loom. There a lot of mentions of the band on other sites but nothing really useful. Allmusic has some information and there is a picture here. There’s also what looks like a poster for a 2007 reunion show. No details though.

Is this the same Früt as at Can't quite tell but that track was a killer...

It is indeed the same band. Thanks! I had not seen that before. The song is very good. I need to find the LP now.
