Subject: Gummi Bare??

Can anyone verify that the website for the 1910 Fruitgum Co is 
legit?  I visited it and it looks sincere enough, but there is 
no mention of Mark Gutkowski, the dude that sang lead on nearly 
all of their teenybopper hits. No doubt he probably no longer 
tours with them--but are Jeckell and Marcus (Jekyll and who?!) 
really other former members of the group?  Frank Y or anybody?

Hi, recent discussion in the group has been regarding Coca-cola ads using 60's music groups etc. It seems as though there may be some members looking for some of these items. An ex dee-jay friend of mine has several of these compiled from commercial spots that were just getting tossed after their run was spent. They are mostly from the actual reel-to-reel station copies. He has over a 1000 positive feedbacks on Ebay, he's 100% quality. I posted a text file of the contents to the spectropop files area. If anyone is interested, contact me and I'll hook you up with his e-mail address. I know stuff like this is hard to find. John -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I have always been under the illusion that "The Pipkins" were a nom de plume for Roger Greenaway & Tony Burrows (Edison Lighthouse, White Plains etc;) I will not rest until I find out!!! not. Yours most sincerely, Ken on the West Coast. P.S. thanks Mick, my Westside/Demon catalogue arrived today. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Thanks for playing this Ian, and I agree entirely. I think there's something Mark isn't telling us! Song's a bit of a rip-off of "It Doesn't Matter Anymore" don't you think?
