Heavy Water was a group of high school and post high school friends from Madison, Indiana. The band performed regularly from mid 1970 till early 1972. Several of the band’s songs were written by Doc Lockridge . Lockridge had a friend that was a DJ at the local radio station, that played a “garage recording” of one of the songs, and the positive response from listeners caused the band to pursue the possibility of getting it recorded. Fultz Recording Studio, in Fairdale Kentucky, offered a 45 single recording package, and the band recorded 2 songs there, in May of 1971.
Heavy Water – “Let’s Go For A ride” / “She Sees You” (White Horse Records F-7)
Heavy Water promoted the single at gigs, and carried it from town to town, trying to get airplay.
The band broke up in early 1972 as members began to move on to their post high school lives.
Heavy Water was: Dennis O’Neal – drums and vocals, Patter McLaughlin – guitar and vocals, Steve Lewis – bass and vocals, and Doc Lockridge - guitar and vocals.
