That so much of their music is strange—emotional, edgy, meticulously orchestrated and quite unlike anything their peers were doing at the time—adds to the air of mystery that has long surrounded them. Their demanding music ensured that Mad River would never rise beyond cult status, but they did have their admirers, some of them well-known and influential.
Gleason liked them as well. Another fan was Richard Brautigan, who, though neither particularly well-known nor influential when Mad River first met him, would soon become both, when Trout Fishing in America hit it big.
Brautigan not only befriended the young band, he helped feed them and introduce them to the local scene. As a gesture of thanks, Mad River dedicated their first album to him, and Brautigan would appear on their second album, performing his poem, "Love's Not the Way to Treat a Friend.
Says Tom Manning, who played bass, then rhythm guitar for the group, "What Antioch did was to have three months on campus to study. The college would get you a job with a company or an organization, and you'd work for three months off campus, come back, and write papers about it.
So you were in school all the time, but you were six months on a job during the year, and six months on campus during the year. Folkies everywhere were succumbing to the allure of electric music, and Robinson and Manning soon decided to start a band of their own.
They brought in Greg Druian on guitar and Lawrence Hammond, who, though classically trained and proficient on a number of instruments, initially played blues harp with the band. When a drummer was found, a younger local kid named Greg Dewey, the first lineup was in place. It was during their off-campus work stint in Washington, D.
Manning had gone west to do his work-study at the University of Washington's Department of Oceanography, so Hammond moved over to bass. Sharing a flat, they worked at their various day jobs, while non-Antiochian Greg Dewey kicked around town, visiting museums and killing time.
In the evenings they would either rehearse or play any club gigs they could scrape up. By the time they returned to Antioch, they had become a very tight band. More than that, they'd become serious.
Increasingly, though, Hammond was coming up with songs, many of them quite dark, and all of them musically demanding. Says Greg Dewey, "Some of the intros took four weeks to figure out.
We literally had to memorize every measure.
When I think back on it, it was intense, intense work. We would get into enormous arguments and have huge fights. Essentially, we all said, 'Hey, we're out of here, and we'll meet in two weeks.
Here's the address and the phone number. We're going to go where the action is. As Greg Druian had opted out to continue work towards his degree, guitarist and fellow Antiochian Rick Bockner was asked to join the band on this venture, which he happily did.Background.
