Skip & Flip

Skip & Turn were the Arizona-based pre-British Invasion pop duo made up of schoolmates Gary Paxton (“Turn”) and Clyde Battin (“Neglect”). They have scored two Best Twenty strikes in 1959, “Cherry Pie” (amount 11 pop) and “IT HAD BEEN I” (amount 11 pop), made by Kim Fowley, but their profession being a duo was short-lived. Paxton became an effective producer and documenting engineer, dealing with the Association (Paxton built, along with manufacturer Curt Boettcher — their TOP MOR-pop strike “Along Shows up Mary,” the main strike “Cherish,” as well as the amusing pop-psych abomination “Pandora’s Golden Heebie Jeebies.” Paxton and Fowley eventually masterminded Paul Revere as well as the Raiders’ initial hit, “Longer Locks” and in 1962, they helped release the Rivingtons, a Western Coast-based vocal group who’s most widely known today for his or her string of early ‘60s novelties, specifically the self-penned “Papa Ooh Mow Mow.” Paxton continued to be the brains behind Bobby “Boris” Pickett as well as the Crypt-Kickers’ colossal “Monster Mash,” a big success in 1973. Battin, in the mean time, went on to become accurate Hollywood cowboy. A lot of his tunes frequently worried themselves using the film business, actual and thought. He created a country-rock group the Evergreen Blueshoes within the middle-‘60s and he later on became a member of the Byrds (from 1969 to 1972), playing bass and performing. The group documented Fowley’s “Resident Kane” track for his or her Untitled recording. After departing the Byrds, Battin became a member of both the Soaring Burrito Brothers and the brand new Riders from the Crimson Sage. He documented a debut self-titled single album (having a track about big screen story Valentino in 1971, which presented backing by previous Byrds users Clarence White colored and Roger McGuinn, along with a visitor appearance by Spanky McFarlane of Spanky & Our Gang.
