The La De Das


Apart from Ray Columbus & the Invaders, the La De Das were New Zealand’s most widely used rock band of the ’60s. As big seafood in an exceedingly small fish-pond, their function doesn’t endure to scrutiny together with the era’s best American and British acts. However they do record some great garage/pop numbers within the spirit from the Moving Stones within the mid-’60s. Many of these (“How May be the Atmosphere Up There?” and “All Purpose Low”) had been big N.Z. strikes, plus they reached the very best Ten with addresses of John Mayall’s “Together with the planet” along with a edition of Bruce Channel’s “Hey Baby.” In 1968, they documented a psychedelic-tinged children’s idea LP, The Content Prince; which bears resemblance to contemporary twee. Following a failed try to split the British marketplace, the group soldiered on for a long time with pedestrian hard rock and roll that — like also the best of the early function — was extremely derivative of abroad trends.
