Peppermint Trolley Company, The
Profile of the performer Peppermint Trolley Company, The:
The Peppermint Trolley Company was an exciting and unique band from California that recorded in the mid to late Sixties.
The music they made is now termed Sunshine Pop, Psychedelic Pop (Sike Pop) or Baroque Rock. The PTC has often been mislabeled as a bubblegum act. In reality, the band bore little resemblance to the fabricated groups who churned out that genre’s hits. With interesting melodies, and strong lyrics, Trolley records showcase superb songwriting and great singing. The lead vocals are heartfelt, the harmonies spot on, and the arrangements frequently have haunting counter melodies. Instrumentally, they often feature a harpsichord (actually a clavinet), and finger- picked guitar. The lyrics are much deeper than the puppy love sensibility of bubblegum music. Some of the words deal with love, both lost and found, or the sad but inevitable parting of friends, others with edgier themes such as war, racism and death. The sound is vulnerable, even fragile at times, but in its way, it is bold and assertive.
