The Village S.T.O.P.

The+Village+STOP+7From St. Catherines, Ontario

‘The Village S.T.O.P.’ was a heavily Hendrix-influenced fuzzy band ’68-’69 and, according to The Museum Of Canadian Music (MOCM), the band was Fraser Loveman, Paul Marcoux, Nick Urech, Steve Urech and Jim Hall. It is stated in a couple of places including MOCM that UK-born singer Fraser Loveman was previously a member of The British Modbeats. Later on he starred in theater shows of “Hair” and “Annie Get Your Gun”. There is more info on MOCM relaying stories of The Village S.T.O.P. performing a revolutionary ‘freak out’ section of their live set where the lights would go out and the band would whip their clothes off to reveal luminously-painted bodies (sometimes naked apparently) and do crazy dances.
