The Fort Mudge Memorial Dump - The Fort Mudge Memorial Dump (1969 us, bostown psychedelic rock, 2005 akarma digi pack issue)

Fort Mudge Memorial Dump was a band from Walpole, Massachusetts, that started playing by 1969, gathering a good number of fans. They got filed into the “Boston Sound”, among the Ultimate Spinach, the Beacon Street Union, Orpheus, Tangerine Zoo, ecc.

With good technique and better ideas, they recorded a very sought-after LP in which the voice of Caroline Stratton stands out to some Jefferson Airplane affinity.  Guitarist Dan Keady, with his jazzy effects, leads the band.

I had forgotten all about this band. Not really fair to lump them in with the "Bosstown Sound.: Thanks for the post.

Did they do a Channel 2 Auction, in 1969?
Did I see Caroline Stratton do a gig at the Father's on Mass. Ave & Marlborough St, 1979?

The guitarist is Dan Keady, not Dean. He is my dad.
