Like Brinsley Schwartz, Endle St. Cloud is usually both a person and a music group, a peculiar acid-folk-heavy-psych mix from Houston whose 1968 recording MANY THANKS All QUITE DEFINITELY is among the odder produces around the semi-legendary International Performers label, also house towards the Crimson Crayola and 13th Ground Elevators. Endle St. Cloud was the business lead vocalist and piano participant. Peter Dark (formerly from the Shed and Found out) played acoustic guitar, David F. Potter (of Los Angeles’ East Part Children) added drums, and Andrew Melinger (previously of Houston’s the Iguanas) was the bassist. The group originally created in early 1968 beneath the name Endle St. Cloud in the torrential rain, where they released the solitary “Inform Me ONCE MORE (What’s Happening to your World)” supported with “Search for Beauty.” Neither of the songs appears around the group’s single long-player, MANY THANKS All QUITE DEFINITELY, that was released later on the same 12 months. (Interestingly, even though sleeve shortened the band’s name to Endle St. Cloud, the label will keep the group’s first, more secret name.) Greater than a season afterwards, when International Performers was trying to create a charting follow-up to Bubble Puppy’s shock hit “Popular Smoke cigarettes and Sassafras,” two tracks were pulled out of this record, “She Wears It Such as a Badge” and “Laughter,” and released as an individual credited only to Endle, additional muddying the nomenclatural waters. By this time around, the group got split; Endle St. Cloud and D.F. Potter divide Texas for LA, where they installed with three regional music artists and released a self-titled record as Potter St. Cloud for the Mediarts label in 1971.
