Flat Earth Society

Flat Earth SocietyFlat Earth Society were a 60s psych pop/rock band from Lynn, just North of Boston. Flat Earth Society were notable for their crispy, clear vocal sound. In early 1968 they were approached by the Boston advertising firm Quinn and Johnson to make an album and a jingle for the manufacturer of the ‘Waleeco’ candy bar – the F. B. Washburn Candy Company. That year every ‘Waleeco’ bar carried a coupon advertising the Flat Earth’s Society’s album Waleeco for $1.50 and six ‘Waleeco’ bar wrappers.
Recorded at Fleetwood Recording Studio in Revere, most of the material was written by Kerivan, the only non-original being a slow melodic version of Midnight Hour. The album covers quite a wide rock spectrum with goodtime (I’m So Happy), folk (When You’re There and The Prelude For Town Monk), hard rock (Four & Twenty Miles and Shadows), as well as psychedelia, but each track has the band’s own style about it. Aside from Feelin’ Much Better, the best tracks are arguably on the second side of the album. Dark Street Downtown has some haunting vocals superimposed upon swirling piano. Portrait In Grey is a haunting piano-oriented instrumental and Satori, a very strange psychedelic instrumental. The band made a few appearances after making the album but broke up soon after. ~ from unknown web source
