Strawberry Alarm Clock

Strawberry Alarm Clock was a psychedelic rock band from Los Angeles, best known for their 1967 hit "Incense and Peppermints" and their appearance in the film Beyond The Valley of the Dolls.

The group originally consisted of Ed King (lead guitar), Mark Weitz (keyboards), Lee Freeman (guitar), Gary Lovetro (bass), and Randy Seol (drums). Interestingly, on their first and most famous single, "Incense and Peppermints," lead vocals were sung by Greg Munford, a 16-year-old friend of the band. After that success the band added George Bunnell (bass and rhythm guitar) before making their first LP in 1967. Bunnell would also become their main songwriter. Membership changes were many. Gary Lovetro left the band before the second album, Wake Up It's Tomorrow, (also 1967). Although the group followed up with more LPs in 1968 (The World in a Seashell) and 1969 (Good Morning Starshine) the band had begun to fall apart and the audience was mostly gone. In various forms the group managed to keep performing until 1971, when the band finally broke up. Ed King went on to join Lynyrd Skynyrd and several members of Strawberry Alarm Clock reunited in the '80s to perform on oldies tours.

. In various forms the group managed to keep performing until 1971, when the band finally broke up. Traffic was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 15, 2004. Although the group followed up with more LPs in 1968 (The World in a Seashell) and 1969 (Good Morning Starshine) the band had begun to fall apart and the audience was mostly gone. After re-uniting, Capaldi and Winwood toured widely but were unable to regain their former stature. Gary Lovetro left the band before the second album, Wake Up It's Tomorrow, (also 1967). Traffic did not record again until 1994, when they released Far From Home.

Bunnell would also become their main songwriter. Membership changes were many. Winwood's solo career peaked with the album Back in the High Life. After that success the band added George Bunnell (bass and rhythm guitar) before making their first LP in 1967. Capaldi's solo career began to heat up, and Winwood finally launched one of his own, recording the smash hit album Arc of a Diver. Interestingly, on their first and most famous single, "Incense and Peppermints," lead vocals were sung by Greg Munford, a 16-year-old friend of the band. Still, Shoot Out at the Fantasy Factory was another hit, as was When the Eagle Flies (1974 in music). The group originally consisted of Ed King (lead guitar), Mark Weitz (keyboards), Lee Freeman (guitar), Gary Lovetro (bass), and Randy Seol (drums). Once again, personnel problems wracked the band as Capaldi began a solo career.

Strawberry Alarm Clock was a psychedelic rock band from Los Angeles, best known for their 1967 hit "Incense and Peppermints" and their appearance in the film Beyond The Valley of the Dolls. After some personnel changes (including the return of Mason), Traffic released The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys, an American hit that didn't chart in the UK. Winwood formed Blind Faith but after that band split in 1969 he began working on a solo recording which eventually turned into another Traffic album, John Barleycorn Must Die, their most successful album yet. Their second album, Traffic, was released in 1968. The band began touring the US, but Mason was fired and Winwood announced the band's break-up. "Hole in My Shoe", the second single, was an even bigger hit, and set the stage for a rivalry between Winwood and Mason, the group's principal songwriters. Their debut album was Mr. Fantasy which, like the singles, was a hit in the UK but not in the US or elsewhere.

Their debut single was 1967's "Paper Sun", a UK hit. With Mason and Capaldi eager to form a new group, Winwood agreed to join the partnership along with Chris Wood and so the four members retreated to a secluded cottage in Aston Tirrold, Berkshire to rehearse. The four musicians often played at a club called The Elbow Room in Aston, Birmingham. Traffic was a rock band, from Birmingham in the late 1960s and led by Steve Winwood, with Jim Capaldi, Chris Wood and Dave Mason, after Winwood left the Spencer Davis Group.
