Redeye was formed in 1970 by guitarist Douglas ‘Red’ Mark, a former member of the Los Angeles, USA, pop psychedelic group Sunshine Company. Mark teamed with David Hodgkins (guitar/vocals), Bill Kirkham (bass) and Bobby Bereman (drums). The rock group signed to the small Pentagram label and released the single ‘Games’ in late 1970; it eventually landed in the Top 30 nationally. A second single, ‘Redeye Blues’, was issued in the spring of 1971, although it was banned in many radio markets owing to its lyrical content - some programmers objected to the song’s story-line about a person getting stoned and then unable to find his drug stash. Nevertheless, the single charted. The group was unable to follow it with another hit and split up in 1972.
