West Coast Natural Gas became Indian Puddin' and Pipe after we had recorded in San Francisco in 1968. Just after the tracks were recorded, the band basically broke up and Matthew Katz changed the name to Indian Puddin' and Pipe. Then in late 1968 Pat Craig went back to San Francisco, called Steve Mack and he went down to put together the performing version of Indian Puddin' and Pipe which was: Pat Craig, Steve Mack, Rex Larsen, Paul Trousdale, Dennis Lannigan, Steve Jackson, Barry Lewis. The most well known version of Indian Puddin' and Pipe lost Lewis and added Rick Quintanal on Drums and Jock Ellis on Trombone. Lydia Moreno did some sessions with us.

Psych-rock combo Indian Puddin' and Pipe formed in Seattle in 1966--originally dubbed the West Coast Natural Gas, the group initially comprised singer/guitarist Kep, guitarists Chuck Bates and Kris Larson, bassist Dave Burke and drummer Jeff LaBrache. A latter-day lineup minus Kep and Bates and featuring vocalist Pat Craig and guitarist Steve Mack relocated to San Francisco and in late 1967 issued the lone WCNG single, the Matthew Katz-produced "Go Run and Play." Katz--the manager of Moby Grape, It's a Beautiful Day and other luminaries of the San Francisco psych scene--structured his contracts so that different lineups could appear under a given group's name anytime and anywhere he desired; one lineup of Indian Puddin' and Pipe already existed, but Katz nevertheless rechristened West Coast Natural Gas with the name as well, moving Craig to keyboards and recruiting vocalist Lydia Mareno for what is now considered the definitive version of the group. Indian Puddin' and Pipe never recorded a full-length LP, but did produce four excellent tracks for the compilation Fifth Pipe Dream, issued on Katz's San Francisco Sound label in 1968. This incarnation of the group split soon after, with Mareno later resurfacing in Stoneground and Craig and Mack reuniting in Pipe. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
