The Family Tree - He Spins Around

Good Bowie-esque rock.

The lead singer was Bob Segraini later of the Wackers.

Segarini's earliest band,'The Ratz, was a local Los Angeles group with Gary Duncan, who later formed Quicksilver Messenger Service. Segarini next started Family Tree with guitarist and keyboardist Jimmy De Cocq, singer Michael Dure, drummer Vann Slatter and bassist Bill "Kootch" Trochim. They only released one album, Miss Butters. Next Segarini formed Roxy with De Cocq and Randy Bishop playing bass and vocals. The group signed with Elektra Records in 1969, but after one album, producer Gary Usher reorganised the band adding drummer Spencer Earnshaw and former guitarist from Family Tree, Mike Stull and bassist Bill 'Kootch' Trochim. The new group released three albums as The Wackers, Wackering Heights, Hot Wacks and Shredder.

This cut is not on the Lp.
