T.We.M.E. – an acronym for RELY UPON Men Just about everywhere – was shaped in LA, California, USA, in 1967. Guitarists Larry Byron and Expenses Richardson had been both ex-members from the CRISIS, a psychedelic pop music group responsible for the wonderful Blew Brain in 1966. Nick St. Nicholas (bass; ex-Sparrows) and Steve Rumph (drums) finished the line-up presented on T.We.M.E. , which taken care of the Hard Instances’ melodic design, albeit having a rockier advantage. St. Nicholas remaining to become listed on Steppenwolf soon after the recording’s conclusion. Richard Tepp changed him for Simple Ball which also released fresh drummer Pat Couchis. Phasing methods added an surroundings of experiment towards the music group’s accomplished audio, while two blues-based choices showed their significant versatility. Neither record was a industrial achievement and T.We.M.E.’s short tenure finished in tragedy when Tepp was murdered. Byron became a member of St. Nicholas in Steppenwolf in 1970, but still left to create Ratchell with Couchis in 1971. A unsatisfactory record ensued, before Byron turned towards the Hoodoo Tempo Devils.
