Led by singer Fred Cole, who had formerly been in the Northwest punk band the Weeds,
the Lollipop Shoppe's sole album (from 1968) ranks as one of the better psych-punk LPs,
and also as one of the better one-shot rock records of the late '60s.
Featuring Cole's choked, bitter phrasing,
the group staked out the middle ground between the Seeds
(who shared the same manager) and Love,
with a bit of fellow L.A. psych-punkers the Music Machine thrown in.
If comparisons must be made, they were definitely closer in tone to Love than the Seeds,
with a mixture of raunch and reflection in the spirit of Arthur Lee.
Cole was one of the few psychedelic performers to make a contribution during the punk era,
surfacing in the Portland punk band the Rats in the late '70s.

The bands only album, 'Just Colour' is a good document of 'psychedelic rock' from that era.
Rocking out hard,
yet with a gentle and beautiful song like 'Only A Reflection' as well,
it's no surprise that some of the Lollipop Shoppe songs (like 'Don't Look Back'
and 'You Must Be A Witch') easily fit in with the Dead Moon set list, even today.

After the Lollipop Shoppe broke up in 1969,
Fred played in a couple of local bands but was generally fed up with the rock'n'roll
business (including the 'necessity' of keeping their marriage a secret).
However, the band made a short re-appearance as Underground Railroad after all
(for a couple of gigs) and even called themselves The Weeds again for a 1971 single,
recorded as a threepiece with Ed Bowen and newcomer drummer Dominic Davis.
The name of the Lollipop Shoppe however will not easily be forgotten,
since countless cover versions of 'You Must Be A Witch'
surfaced in the eighties garage rock boom,
and lots of garage punk bands of today also pick this song for their set list.
