The Yellow Payges were hard-rocking, psych-pop originators from the circa-’66 “Riot-on–Sunset Strip” scene, and far more than just a Hollywood sensation. They toured for a solid year with Eric Burdon and The Animals in ’68, and were the first rock band ever to record a Jimmy Webb song, the penetrating Vietnam-era classic “Our Time is Running Out,” which Webb personally brought them. After management signed a 1970 deal with AT&T to promote telephone books, the kids perceived ’em as squares, and it all went south. Resurrected by original singer Daniel Hortter and ferocious drummer Danny Gorman, and ably augmented by brilliant guitar slingers Dave Provost and Mike Livingston, they’ve only done a handful of shows since reforming a year or so ago, but each delivers scads of high rock & roll adventure.
