It's A Hard Life !

Best-known for their rock & roll standard "Pushin' Too Hard," the Seeds combined the raw appeal of garage rock with a fondness for ragged, trashy psychedelia.
Sky Saxon (vocals) and guitarist Jan Savage formed the Seeds with keyboardist Daryl Hooper and drummer Rick Andridge in Los Angles in 1965.
By the end of 1966, they had secured a contract with GNP Crescendo, releasing "Pushin' Too Hard" as their first single.
Its raw, simple riff and Saxon's howling, half-spoken intonation established a pattern that remained almost unchanged throughout the group's career. The song climbed into the Top 40 early in 1967.
I'm going back to the beach guys.
It's a hard life.

Fine music as ever Reverend! I love the track they did with Kim Fowley "Wild Blood". It gets you up on the dancefloor with a smile on your face!
