"Popsicles and Icicles"

In 1963, The Murmaids (an unfortunate typo!) scored a #3 hit with "Popsicles And Icicles." Group members, the Fisher sisters, were 15 and 17 at the time. The song was written by future Bread member, David Gates, and produced by the house producer at Chattahoochee Records, Kim Fowley. The girls were paid nothing for the record. Welcome to the music biz girls!

I'd like to see someone do a post on just Kim Fowley. I'd do it but it'd probably give me night terrors. He is one of the most outrageously disturbing characters in pop music history, but I'm sure it's a great story to tell.

I considered doing that. I really enjoyed The Mayor of Sunset Strip, and I thank you for your post on it. Fowley did seem like evil, incarnate!
