Love Craft

H.P. Lovecraft were an American psych-rock band from Chicago that released two albums with accompanying singles on Philips in 1967/68. The lineup underwent numerous changes and disbanded in San Francisco in 1968. The following year, guitarist/frontman George Edwards and drummer Michael Tegza assembled a new lineup under the abbreviated name Lovecraft, which issued the album Valley of the Moon on Reprise in 1970. After a second breakup, Tegza revised the nameplate a third time for the 1975 Latin/funk-rock release We Love You, Whoever You Are on Mercury. The album features ex-High Voltage vocalist Lalomie Washburn, who subsequently recorded as a solo artist.
