Mid-sixties Detroit psych-popsters the Spikedrivers were fronted by Ted Lucas, previously known to local audiences as a leading light of the Motor City folk music scene. Also including Richard Keelan and Joel Myerson, the Spikedrivers debuted in 1966 with the single "High Time; " originally recorded for the Om label, it was soon snapped up for national distribution by Warner/Reprise, but despite limited success on the East Coast and across the Midwest the record failed to chart. When their 1967 follow-up "Strange Mysterious Sounds" met the same grim fate the Spikedrivers disbanded; Lucas and Keelan later reunited in the folk outfit Misty Wizzard, with the former also founding the Horny Toads in 1970.
