Terry Fischer


Popsicles and Icicles by the Murmaids is a long-time favorite of mine that has a timeless quality to it, and a remarkable convergence of talent went into its creation.  The vocal group was composed of sisters Terry Fischer and Carol Fischer plus Sally Gordon.  Mike Post was a schoolfriend of Terry Fischer and cut several demos for the trio; Post would sometimes bring the women to Gold Star Studios to provide backing vocals on various recordings. 


Terry FischerCarol Fischer and Sally Gordon came to the attention of Kim Fowley while they were doing backing vocal work for Mike Post, and he offered to record a single for them; at the time, according to Wikipedia, Fowley was “the in-house producer for Chattahoochee Records”, which released the single.  Fowley produced Popsicles and Icicles and four other tracks for the band (now known as the Murmaids), each of which served as the “B” side for various releases of the song.
