THE DOWN CHILDREN – “Night Time Girl”/”I Can Tell” (Philips 40441) March 1967

Not a great deal of information is known about The Down Children so if anyone knows much needed information be sure to get in touch. According to ‘Teenbeat Mayhem’ the group hailed from Philadelphia, PA. This single on Philips was their only release.

“Night Time Girl” was first recorded and released as a single by M.F.Q. Check out my archives for that one, I recently uploaded a YouTube video. The Down Children version adopts a slower pace, features male/female vocals and is perhaps even more of a psychedelic head tripper. The flip “I Can Tell” is also worthy and features a crude Count Five fuzz style ‘Psychotic Reaction’ rave-up.
