New Colony Six

Chicago’s New Colony 6 originally surfaced as a hardcore, British Invasion-styled clothing prominently featuring Farfisa body organ and a book (at that time) Leslie electric guitar. Scoring an enormous local strike with “I Confess,” their early recordings — exemplified by their 1966 debut record, Breakthrough — highlighted first-class original materials that provided the sound of these as well as the Yardbirds a far more industrial, American garage-based, vocal tranquility approach. All of those other ’60s noticed the band steadily abandoning its root base for middle-of-the-road pop with horns and strings. Carrying on to rack up main local strikes and minor nationwide types, they finally damaged the U.S. Best 30 with “Like You A LOT” (1968) and “Stuff Let me State” (1969).
