This Wisconsin band appeared on ‘Psychedelic states Illinois’ with their swirling psychedelic track 'Fly My Paper Plane’. Now the band have discovered six other original tracks recorded in the fall of 1967. The music is powerful, loud and reflective of their sound. There’s also a previously unreleased alternate version of their single…….

Mourning Dayze was born on August 9,1965 in Whitewater, Wisconsin. The band’s original name was “The Coachmen,” but later when they discovered there was another band with the same name, the guys decided to change It, The band traveled to and from gigs in a hearse pulling a trailer. One morning while driving back to Whitewater, after another late-night gig, the sun was coming up and it was hazy; thus; Mourning Dayze.

Mourning Dayze was extremely popular in the Midwest especially in the teen bars that were popular in Wisconsin during the late 1960’s and early 1970.’$. The band was popular on many college campuses, not only for its music, but also for their light show. It’s believed that Mourning Dayze was the first rock and roll band in the state of Wisconsin to include a traveling strobe light. The band became known throughout the Midwest because of its props, including a large banner with the name. Mourning Dayze on it; an umbrella on a mike stand; a siren; an old fashioned pole lamp with a yellow light, and the familiar Taj Mahal on the kick drum, In addition to Midwestern states, Mourning Dayze played in states as far east as New York and New Jersey, as far south as Florida and as far west as Idaho, The band also played numerous gigs in Canada.

During the first five years prominent musicians passed through the band leaving a long lasting impression, Curly Cook, an early guitarist with the Steve Miller Band introduced Mourning Dayze to the power of the blues and the power and soul of the guitar Berry Oakley played bass guitar with Mourning Dayze shortly before the formation of the Allman Brothers Band. Mike Warner joined in the fall of 1969, after his summer drumming with Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions. During the firs! five years, Mourning Dayze opened for many well-known bands, including The Music Explosion, Ohio Express, The Lemon Pipers, The Trashmen, and The New Colony SIX.

From the summer of 1972 to the spring of 2000, Mourning Dayze played a portion of every year at Alpine Valley Resort in East Troy, Wisconsin. It began performing as a house band for the winter ski season and on weekends during the summer, in the mid-70’s Alpine Valley became a major stop on the national tour for rock, pop and contemporary styles of music. Mourning Dayze was in the perfect setting to meet jam, and listen backstage, to national touring acts every weekend, week after week, year in and year out. Some of the bands Mourning Dayze jammed with include Los Crusades, RE XX Billy Swan and Hank Williams Jr. in the fall and spring of each year, Mourning Oayze would hit the road with a special love for touring the western United States. After 41 years Mourning Dayze is still gigging………

The Mourning Dayze were a Wisconsin garage band in the mid-'60s heavily influenced by the Beatles and the Byrds and this extremely brief (22 minutes) collection of the group's recordings from 1967 shows just how derivative they actually were. "Man with the Thin Mind," which is probably the best track here, bubbles along on a speeded up "Taxman" (via the Beatles) progression while "The Mourning Dayze" is clearly the Byrds' "I'll Feel a Whole Lot Better" with a different set of lyrics. Likewise "Moon That Gives No Sunlight" takes its melody and even the tone and feel of its lyrics from Bob Dylan's "Chimes of Freedom," and the arrangement is exactly the same as the Byrds' version of the Dylan song. All of this is a bit bothersome, but the Mourning Dayze weren't doing anything that a thousand other local bands weren't also doing at the time, and copping from the Beatles, the Byrds, the Rolling Stones, the Kinks, the Animals and the Yardbirds is what gives the whole garage band phenomenon of the '60s its signature feel and sound. Still, nothing here generates more than historical interest, and even the much lauded "Fly My Paper Airplane" (included here in two versions), which has been cited as a lost psychedelic classic, hardly lives up to its billing. Bands like this one were extremely valuable in their local communities, places where megastars like the Beatles weren't likely to visit, but translated to a larger stage, well, the world already had the Beatles and the Byrds, and while imitation is flattery, it's still imitation, however nicely configured it might be.... by Steve Leggett....~
