Part of my enjoyment in doing this book was discovering the music that was happening throughout North Carolina in the 1960s, and the towns and cities where Rock & Roll. Take Lumberton, NC, for instance. Lumberton had a thriving scene in the mid to late 1960s, which included the Young Ones (who later changed their name to Psychic Motion), and the Cykle. The Young Ones' second single, "Big Teaser" is just a fun romp of a Rock & Roll song. Big choruses, a well-produced recording, and a mighty two-minute glimpse into what was coming out of Eastern NC.
Check out this Youtube clip of the song, complete with photos of the band in their heyday. Of all the bands of that time that I wish I could've seen live, this is one of the highest on my list. Enjoy!
