The Ferris Wheel — “Can’t Break the Habit”, The Fleur De Lys — “Mud in Your Eye”, The Birds — “You’re on My Mind”: Brace for the Obscure (60’s rock)! — August 8, 2021

31) The Ferris Wheel, “Can’t Break the Habit”

Per Jim Dunn, the psych-tinged soul band was “one of England’s great lost musical treasures of the mid- to late ’60s — immensely popular among club audiences [but] never able to translate their ability to win over crowds into chart success . . . .” ( This ’67 single deserved so much better.

32) The Fleur De Lys, “Mud in Your Eye”

Nuggets II calls this ’66 single “milestone U.K. freakbeat.” Yup.

33) The Birds, “You’re on My Mind”

Blame the Byrds for their clipped wings, and see Ron Wood (writer of this ’64 single) soar with the Faces and the Stones.
