Strawberry Alarm Clock was a one-hit wonder psychedelic rock band from Los Angeles, known for their 1967 hit "Incense and Peppermints".
The group originally consisted of Ed King (lead guitar), Mark Weitz (keyboards), Lee Freeman (rhythm guitar), Gary Lovetro (bass), and Randy Seol (drums). On their first and most famous single, "Incense and Peppermints", lead vocals were sung by Greg Munford, a 16-year-old friend of the band. The song reached #1 on the Billboard pop singles chart in late 1967. After that success the band added George Bunnell (bass and rhythm guitar) before making their first LP in 1967, also titled Incense and Peppermints. Bunnell would also become their main songwriter.
Membership changes were many. Gary Lovetro left the band before the second album, Wake Up It's Tomorrow, (also 1967). The single "Tomorrow" from this album was a minor hit and their only other top 40 appearance, reaching #23 in early 1968.
