A registered Communist starts a band called The United States Of America and lands a major label record deal before playing a single live gig? Only in the Sixties. After studying with avant-garde legend John Cage in New York City, composer Joseph Byrd moved to Los Angeles in 1967 and decided to form a psychedelic rock band.

The band recorded only one self-titled album before dissolving, but it was a memorable one.
