POLICE FALSELY ARREST SIXTH CALI ROCK BAND Yet Another Group Of Long-Hairs Mistaken For Manson Family
(San Fransisco, California) – Little-known San Francisco blues-rock band, Linn County, were released without charge yesterday after their arrest on suspicion of being the notorious Manson Family. According to Police Chief Brian McGuffey, one member was “a dead ringer for Charles ‘Tex’ Watson, but it turned out to be the band’s drummer, Jerome McAndrew.”
“All these goddam long-hairs look the same to me,” McGuffey continued. “Hirsute, unwashed and reeking of marihuana.”
“Lord only knows how their fans tell them apart,” he added.
The arrest follows similar incarcerations of the Grateful Dead, the Jefferson Airplane, Moby Grape, the Steve Miller Band, Big Brother and the Holding Company and Kak. Editor’s Note: Above average blues-rock from transplanted Midwest band. I bought this yesterday on a thrifting trip with Grampa Asbo. He’s something of a bibliophile–the apple don’t fall too far from the tree.
