You can tell we're Guess Who fans.. One thing we like to discuss with customers and friends alike is common groups and some of their more far out music they made further back in the day. Now, Guess Who has been around for longer than the psych crusade, but some of these LPs have some seriously heavy tunes! #psych#recordstore#canadian#rockpop#fivemanelectricalband#guesswho
"Sign, sign, everywhere a sign..." yes, this is the sign on my little woodshop, in dramatic black and white, but it makes me laugh in color just as much. The old one faded, kind of like we all do. I like to tell people that most folks who drop by use that door by choice. All creative folks have a little hippie in their soul, and i suspect that has always been the case. Whether you do or don't, peace to all of you fine humans. #signs#fivemanelectricalband#vinyllove#hippie#woodworking#woodshop
"And the sign said, 'Everybody welcome...
Come in, kneel down and pray.'
But when they passed around the plate at the end of it all,
I didn't have a penny to pay.
So I got me a pen and a paper and I made up my own little sign,
I said, 'Thank you, Lord, for thinkin' 'bout me. I'm alive and doin' fine.'
Sign, sign, everywhere a sign.
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind...
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

No, seriously. There are signs EVERYWHERE in this garage right now in preparation for the #springmarket . We are taking the fact that we're a #handmademarket seriously and creating and painting some of our own billboards and directional signs to be posted throughout #our town and surrounding areas.
If you see one while you're out and about, make sure and share with #backroadsmarketindiana 🛣️

For a good slice of Canadian pop from 1967 that may still be obscure to anyone but Canadians, check out The Staccatos "Half Past Midnight". Charting at #8 in Canada, it's got that sunshine, feel-good, psych-pop "something good in the air" sound only a hit single from 67' could have, if you know what I mean.
Staccatos formed in 63' with founding member Dean Hagopean, then by early 70's had evolved into The Five Man Electrical Band who had an international hit with "Signs" in 71' (#7 in US) many would know.
Hagopean was doing a stint as a Montreal DJ "morning man" with a sense of humor on CFOX 1470 (Top40) by 67'. Later, when the big success with "Signs" came for a band he'd long ceased being a member of, Hagopean would jokingly brag he was in fact "the Pete Best of The Five Man Electrical Band!" - a vaunted claim to being a little less than the tone of that brag would imply, I guess.
I had a friend from Ottawa about a dozen years ago who'd had a "rich uncle" who occasionally had The Staccatos up to his country place, she said - a thrill for her because she would have been 12 years old in 67' when Half Past Midnight was a big hit in Canada.
"..And the sign said "Long-haired freaky people need not apply"
So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why
He said "You look like a fine upstanding young man, I think you'll do"
So I took off my hat, I said "Imagine that. Huh! Me workin' for you!"
Whoa-oh-oh" #signs#longhairedfreakypeople#fivemanelectricalband#tesla 🤘✌
Soooo.... there are many days where I just belt a song out when I hear a phrase/word... for no reason 🤷🏻♀️😂 For instance, todays IG challenge in the #suitesassypants is #signs now one would think I’d post something to do with signs. Well I couldn’t come up with a stinkin thing but I sure started belting out... 🎶 🎶 “And the sign said long-haired freaky people need not apply” ... “sign,sign, everywhere a sign Blockin’ out the screeners, breakin’ my mind Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign” 🎶 🎶 #kissmysass#fivemanelectricalband
