ARTIST: The Beatin' Path
TITLE: The Original Nothing People / I Waited So Long
LABEL: Get Hip Archive Series
CATALOG #: GHAS-15
DESCRIPTION: This 45 documents the final chapter of the legendary Starlites’ story. After personnel changes in 1967, they changed their name to the Beatin’ Path and released this 45. “The Original Nothing People” stands as one of the true classics of garage punk with put-down lyrics, heavy beat, cool cheesy organ and Seeds-inspired guitar. Originally called “8 X 10” with lyrics about a drug experience, vocalist Steve Musser lost the lyrics and had to come up with new ones for this song which was then renamed. Obviously they were at a loss for more words since the flip of this 45 is an instrumental.
