Another Astoria area band of the mid- late 1960s was the Zero End, a psychedelic garage band that released two singles on the Garland label.  Their first single was "Lid To Go / Hey Joe" late 1966 - early 1967, and "Blow your Mind / Fly Today" in the fall of 1967. They were all from Knappa - Svensen, Oregon.
