Van Buren Wheels, The
Van Buren Wheels (10")
The band played 60s punk, blue-eyed soul, British r&b, Dutchbeat and Northwest frat covers live, in addition to their originals. They were high-energy and played most frequently at Tempe AZs legendary Long Wong club. There were no other bands playing this kind of music in the Phoenix area at the time, but several popped up during and after the Wheels. "Cmon and Be Mine," "Hang Out With Me," "(She Got) Green Eyes" & "Wicked Lies" were recorded to cassette 4-track by a toothless speedfreak named Mark who used to run sound for the early Alice Cooper outfits (The Spyders / Earwigs). "Moody Judy" & "Soon Ill Be Gone" were recorded by Jack Miller (engineer on The Stones ("I Cant Get No) Satisfaction," "Duane Eddys "Rebel Rouser," The Batman Theme," etc.). All these songs here were written by Jaime Paul Lamb and Vince Bocchini.
