******
The Thunder Mugs were an obscure late '60 band from California that recorded an album's worth of songs for Bill Holmes's All American Records label . Although the band never released a full album during their hey day, they did manage a single in 1969, "Motion Tree" b/w "Captain Midnight," which atteracted some media attention and critical praise. The band was made up of Dennis Bassetti (bass, vocals), Bob Jonte (drums ) Jack Lutz lead vocals, guitar, keyboards) and Jerry Roy lead guitar and vocals). The music on the bands' only album, On The Spot was entirely composed by Jack Lutz and is predominantly soft psychedelic pop with good guitar, a few effects and a very British sound. The material on the album offers good period charm and features a few stand out songs that if they were released in Britain in 1967, could have easily become hits. The album was released on Akarma Records and is officially licensed from All American Records.The album contains the band's entire output of thirteen songs which are mainly singles and unreleased recordings, together on one package for the first time.
