The Baroque Monthly

From: Columbus, OH, USA

This was actually a pseudonym for a Columbus, OH garage band called the Jaguars that formed in 1964 from students attending Bexley and Eastmoor high schools. They changed their moniker to the Baroque Monthly for one 1968 single. Members of the band included Dan Masys (lead vocals, lead guitar), Dave Sampson (bass), Jon Rickley (drums), and Jim Kelly (keyboards).

Their sole 45 includes the outstanding ‘You Are Your Only Mystery’, which has a definite mod/baroque feel to it. It was penned by Masys who has said that he was inspired by The Beatles’ ‘Eleanor Rigby’ and the Left Banke’s ‘Walk Away Renee’ when he wrote it.

Artist information sources include: The book, ‘Fuzz, Acid, and Flowers Revisited’ by Vernon Joynson.
