Frijid Pink

Detroit hard rockers Frijid Red created in 1967, originally made up of singer Thomas Beaudry (stage name Kelly Green), guitarist Gary Ray Thompson, bassist Tom Harris, keyboardist Larry Zelanka, and drummer Richard Stevers. After 2 yrs of relentless touring through the entire southeast Michigan region, the group — substituting Harris with Beaudry on bass — authorized with the Bird label in 1969. Although their 1st two singles, “Inform Me Why” and “Drivin’ Blues,” didn’t attract much interest, their third work for the business — a distorted, guitar-heavy interpretation of “THE HOME of the Increasing Sunlight” — reached the very best Ten within the U.S. pop graphs, becoming a straight bigger hit abroad. Frijid Pink’s self-titled debut LP adopted in 1970, as do the follow-up Defrosted; following singles including “Sing a Track for Independence” and “Heartbreak Resort,” however, didn’t match previously successes, and after 1972’s Globe Omen the group didn’t reenter the studio room until documenting 1975’s All Red Inside, disbanding immediately after.
