Twinn Connexion

From: Helena, MT, USA

The Twinn Connexion was the duo of identical twins Jay (vocals) and Jerry Hopkins (vocals), hailing from Helena, Montana, and began performing while still in grade school. In their high school years, they landed their own local TV show, but soon relocated to New York City where they were discovered by an executive with Decca Records. After signing with the label the twins were paired up with songwriter and producer Jerry Keller to compose an LP, which would be issued in 1968. All tracks on the album were written and arranged by Keller and writing partner Dave Blume (who also played organ and vibes on the record). 

The Twinn’s self-titled LP is made up of mostly straight forward pop-psych/sunshine pop, but the production is excellent and there are a number of great arrangements and musicianship. The standout track is ‘I Think I’ll Just Go A Find Me A Flower,’ which was also issued around the same time by Moorpark Intersection, who’s version is also played on Psychedelicized. Unfortunately the album and subsequent singles didn’t find much success, prompting the duo to fade into obscurity. Jay Hopkins ended up becoming a successful Wall Street stock market trader until his passing in 2001. Jerry now resides in Woodstock, New York.
