MAX (a.k.a. RODAN) was a high-energy rock/jazz/funk fusion outfit active during the early/mid-1970s. A couple of members were from an earlier group called The Elastik Band.
The band gigged extensively throughout California, and toured with bands such as Tower of Power and MALO.
MAX had label interest, although a deal never panned out. Shortly before disbanding in 1974, they released an album under the name “RODAN” on the private label Pandora. Limited to a couple hundred copies, this underground collectable has fetched several hundred dollars amongst avid horn-rock fans.
