2016 repress, originally released in 2013. Jokers Wild recorded three singles between 1967 and 1969 in Minnesota but the complete album, Liquid Giraffe, was never released. Starting as a five man band, most of the material was recorded by the three main members: Lonnie Knight, Denny Johnson and Pete Huber. Lonnie Knight became guitarist of The Litter for a while but he returned to Jokers Wild. Jokers Wild was a powerful band - Huge amp stacks guaranteeing a "wall-of-sound" on stage, double bass drum and cool outfits. They must have been great on stage. Damin Eih, A.L.K. and Brother Clark wrote: "In '67 I saw two local bands that again amped up the juice, The Litter and Jokers Wild. Both bands played original music and had excellent psychedelic-raved guitar players, Zippy Caplan (Litter) and Lonnie Knight. That brought everything to a new level." Heavy underground rock with great composed songs, fuzz guitars, speedy drums and tight bass lines. If you think The Litter is great, you should listen to Jokers Wild. 180 gram vinyl. Comes in a heavy sleeve with a two-page insert. Edition of 500 (numbered).
