Blue Oyster Cult initially called itself Soft White Underbelly, when it formed in 1967 in Long Island. The group was created upon the prompting of manager and critic Sandy Pearlman, comprising of bassist Andrew Winters, singer Les Braunstein, keyboardist Allen Lanier, drummer Albert Bouchard, and guitarist Buck Dharma. Pearlman proved to be quite pivotal to the band’s popularity, by getting them gigs as well as recording deals with Columbia and Electra, and also provided them with poetry to be used as lyrical content of their songs, such as Astronomy. Lyrics were also provided by writer Richard Meltzer during their beginning years to the release of their most recent album.
Blue Oyster Cult shifted through many band names including Santos Sisters, Stalk-Forest Group and Oaxaca, finally settling on their current name in 1971. New York jingle writer and producer David Lucas saw them play a live show following which he took them to Warehouse Recording Studio, where the band produced a demo. With this, Pearlman got them yet another audition with the famous Columbia Records. The results came out well, since Clive David approved of their sound and signed them to the label. Their first studio album was recorded at Lucas’ studio on eight tracks.
