Background:

Thee Dark Ages was a '60s/'70s band started by former members of the Jesters, including future Beat Farmer guitarist Jerry Raney and guitarist/bassist Jerry Butler. They reportedly played a lot of British music, as well as the complete Forever Changes album by Arthur Lee and Love.

Future rock critic Lester Bangs would sometimes sit in with the band. The soundtrack for the 2014 documentary A Box Full Of Rocks: The El Cajon Years of Lester Bangs includes several Thee Dark Ages songs, as well as tracks by local Jon Kanis and contributions by Robert Williams (Captain Beefheart), Jack Gimble, and the Flying Sandolini.
