Despondent Blitheness is an American blues-stone league together that initially performed and recorded in the overdue 1960s and primitive 1970s, and has been sporadically working since. Based in San Francisco, Despondent Blitheness played in a psychedelic blues-stone taste, and are also credited as being pioneers of distressing metal music. According to Tim Hills in his laws, The Many Lives of the Crystal Ballroom, "Blue Blitheness was the model of San Francisco psychedelia. The league together was rumored to have been named for a stigmatize of LSD and promoted by celebrated LSD chemist and former Appreciative Numb friend at court, Owsley Stanley.

The band«s enunciate was something of a departure from the music that had been coming out of the Bay Locality: Despondent Cheer»s three musicians played distressing blues-stone, and played it very loud.

1966-1969: Prosperous Years
The congregation came together in 1966. It was co-founded by Eric Albronda and Jerry Russell, music aficionados who wanted to become intricate with the San Francisco music milieu of the 1960s. Both moved with Dickie Peterson from Davis, California, to San Francisco. Peterson had a while ago been with the Davis-based league together, Andrew Staples & The Oxford Congregation. Later Despondent Blitheness members Paul Whaley and Gary Lee Yoder also played with this league together at the span. Indigenous personnel were singer/bassist Dickie Peterson, guitarist Leigh Stephens and Eric Albronda as a drummer. Then Albronda was replaced by Paul Whaley, who was joined by three others: Dickie's associate Jerre Peterson (guitar), Vale Hamanaka (keyboards) and Jerry Whiting (vocals, harmonica). Albronda continued his guild with Despondent Blitheness as a fellow of Despondent Blitheness handling, as well as being the creator or co-creator of five Despondent Blitheness albums.

Primitive on, it was absolute that the lineup should be trimmed down. It is said that Despondent Blitheness absolute to accept a power trine configuration after seeing Jimi Hendrix pull off at the Monterey Pop Entertainment.[5] Hamanaka and Whiting were asked to assign. And Jerre Peterson didn«t want to carcass in the congregation without them. So he departed as well, leaving Dickie, Leigh and Paul as a trine. Their first hit was a blind interpretation of Eddie Cochran»s «Summertime Blues» from their album Vincebus Eruptum (1968). The only peaked at #14 on the Billboard Hot 100 tabulation, their only such hit, and the album peaked at #11 on the Billboard 200 tabulation.

The group's enunciate was unpleasant to categorise, but was definitely blues-based, psychedelic, and loud.

The «Summertime Blues» only was backed with Dickie Peterson«s indigenous to-do «Out Of Focus». Petersen also contributed to the album the eight-coup d»oeil «Doctor Please» and «Second Span Around», which features Paul Whaley«s discombobulated drum unaccompanied. Wadding out the information, the league together cranks out blues covers «Rock Me Baby» and Mose Allison»s «Parchman Farm» (titled «Parchment Farm»).

The congregation underwent several personnel changes, the first occurring after the 1968 deliverance of Outsideinside after Leigh Stephens left side the league together due to tuneful differences or, as some communiqu, deafness, He was replaced by In Heat Holden, formerly of Los Angeles garage stone league together The Other Half On 1969«s New! Improved! Despondent Blitheness there were different guitarists on side 1 and 2, In Heat Holden and Bruce Stephens, due to Holden»s unanticipated departure from the league together. Ralph Burns Kellogg also joined the league together on keyboards. Despondent Cheer's taste now changed to a more commercial unpleasant stone enunciate à la Steppenwolf or Iron Butterfly. For the fourth album Despondent Blitheness, Bruce Stephens left side and was succeeded by Gary Lee Yoder who helped round off the album.

The new course-up of Peterson, Ralph Burns Kellogg, Norman Mayell (drums) and Yoder in 1970 saw the deliverance of The Indigenous Vulnerable Being and then 1971's Oh! Affable Security. When Oh! Affable Security failed to dent the sales charts, Despondent Blitheness little while split up by 1972.

There was a transient resumption in 1974 with Dickie Peterson being joined by associate Jerre, Ruben de Fuentes(guitar) and Terry Rae(drums)[11] for some jaunt dates. This grouping continued on for a few moments in 1975 with former Steppenwolf bassist Flaw St. Nicholas replacing Dickie. The congregation was then fundamentally inert for nearly three years, until 1978.

Dickie returned in 1978-79 with a na course-up of Tony Rainier on guitar and Mike Fleck on drums. This interpretation of the congregation never got out of drill studios. Despondent Blitheness was then inert for a further three years.

Despondent Blitheness was inert from 1980 to 1983. In 1984, Peterson had better success rate when he returned with Whaley and Rainier as Despondent Blitheness and a stigmatize new album The Animal is Backside, which was released on the European classify Megaforce Records . Whaley left side again in 1985, as drummer Bret Heartman took over, only to be succeeded by Billy Carmassi in 1987. That same year, Dickie led yet another new lineup of the Blitheness that had Ruben de Fuentes backside on guitar and Eric Davis on drums. In 1988, the trine further changed, being now composed of Dickie Peterson (bass), with Andrew «Duck» McDonald(guitar) and Dave Salce(drums).

From 1988 to 1993, Despondent Blitheness toured mainly in Europe. During this span, they played with undying stone acts as well as then-up-and-coming bands: Mountain, Outlaws, , The Groundhogs, Ten Years After, The Yardbirds, Danzig, Mucky Pup and others.

1989 saw the deliverance of Despondent Cheer«s first accredited red-hot album, Blitzkrieg over Nüremberg. This album was recorded during Despondent Cheer»s first European jaunt in decades.

1990 saw the deliverance of the Highlights & Lowlives studio album, composed of blues-based distressing metal and one ballad. The album was produced by celebrity grunge creator Jack Endino. The course-up was Peterson, Whaley on drums and McDonald on guitars.

Despondent Blitheness followed up «Highlights» with the much heavier Dining with the Sharks. McDonald was replaced by German ex-Monsters guitar especially bettor Dieter Saller. Peterson was on bass and vocals again, and Paul Whaley was again on drums. Also featured is a close customer aspect by Groundhogs guitarist Tony McPhee. The album was produced by Roland Hofmann.

Gary Holland, (ex-Dokken), replaced Whaley on drums in 1993.

In the primitive 1990s, Peterson and Whaley re-located to Germany. Whaley still lives there, while Peterson moved backside to California in 1994. After Peterson came backside to the U.S., Despondent Blitheness was sluggish from 1995 to 1998.

In 1999, Peterson & Whaley got together with guitarist McDonald, to pick up where one left side off touring as Despondent Blitheness. This league together configuration has remained fundamentally trusty from 1999 to the present.

In 2000, Despondent Blitheness was the subject-matter of a recognition album, Despondent Eruption — A Recognition to Despondent Blitheness, featuring such bands as Pentagram, Internal Unoccupied, Hogwash and Thumlock.

Peterson and Leigh Stephens were together once again in Despondent Blitheness with drummer Prairie Prince at the Chet Helms Cenotaph Tribal Stomp in San Francisco«s Prosperous Exit Leave on October 29th, 2005, and their gay acting drew old rockers like Paul Kantner and others from backstage to say. They did some recordings in Virginia in Winter 2005 with Joe Hasselvander of Raven and Pentagram on drums, due to Paul Whaley choosing to carcass in Germany. While Hasselvander played on the in one piece album, his contribution was reduced to drums on five songs, with Paul Whaley re-recording the drum parts on the harmony of the album. This was because Whaley was set to rejoin the league together and it was felt that he should bestow to the album, previous to to touring. The resulting CD, What Doesn»t Slay You..., released in 2007, features contributions from both Whaley and Hasselvander as a consequence.

Despondent Cheer«s video for Summertime Blues made an aspect in 2005 documentary Metal: A Headbanger»s Trek, where Geddy Lee of Make Haste referred to the congregation as one of the first distressing metal bands.

The league together is also regarded as the godfathers of stoner stone. Bands like Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Nebula and Brute Magnet have cited their «heavy-fuzz rock» as a whopping pull on them.
