for reference, a clearer blog post about the Threeteens - "Doowaddie"
So early Duane Eddy, recording with Lee Hazlewood in Phoenix, got mixed into this (though somehow his records were distributed on a Philly label)

John from CDA:
The name, "Ichor of Nettle" is taken from a line from the Robert Frost poem, "Departmental". As for the definition, ichor in this case is the fluid that runs through the veins of a nettle.

John from CDA:
The Golden Boys are from the little town of Spring Branch, TX.
Thu. 11/9/17 9:17am
The name "Ichor of Nettle" proves to be as arcane as the band named "Twas Brillig" (after the first two words in Lewis Carroll's "Jaberwocky").

see BILLBOARD Magazine:
-- p 3, April 28, 1958: The Three Teens entered the Westinghouse Talent Hunt, won by the Deb-Tones
-- p 40, May 12, 1958: "Review Spotlight on . . . " column examined 5 singles, including
The THREETEENS - Dear 53310761/DOOWADDIE
The young trio has a real cute sound on these two attractive sides. Top Tune is a tribute to Presley via his army serial number. Flip, "Doowaddie," is a novelty item that also appears to have click potential. ["The Purple People Eater" also got the column's spotlight: "This is one of the funniest novelty songs in some time . . . Wooley handles the nonsense lyrics with strong effect . . ."]
-- p 4, May 19, 1958: "PRICE CUT COUNTERS REV NO RETURN PLAN"
The article says with the release of the THREETEENS disk REV Records instituted a no return policy, offset by cutting record prices from 42 to 34 cents. "To date Rev has had more orders and re-orders on the THREETEENS disk than on any of its last four releases." Expect record distributors to order more conservatively.

DOOWADDIE tells you to:
Both songs of this THREETEENS record were written by Trinity Music's Bob "Hutch" Davie and Marvin Moore in NY's Brill Building, after their only hit, 1956, "Green Door." At Canadian-American Records, Hutch Davie arranged Santos & Johnny's "Sleep Walk" in 1959 with producer Bob Crewe, then produced and arranged the label's other star LINDA SCOTT - I could smell it! - beginning in 1961. A founding partner of CAPRICE RECORDS, Hutch Davie arranged the Angel's "Til" and "Cry Baby Cry," 1961-62. Hutch Davie's arrangement of Bob Crewe Generation records included the 1966 hit version of "Music to Watch Girls By."
