The United States of America were founded in 1967 in New York by avant-garde musician Joseph Byrd. The band wasn't to last long - after only one self-titled album and an unfinished tour they broke up, mainly because of the lack of success.

Until now, the band has remained unknown, though the music is everything but reserved. The short songs often have the elegance and power of classical compositions and flavored with intelligent, witty and ironic lyrics about the American lifestyle of the late 60s, they are irresistible.

According to Joe Byrd, the important influences are Jefferson Airplane, Country Joe and the Fish and Blue Cheer, but also The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper" album. « hide
