Originally known as The Nomads and based in Houston, Texas, this band issued two 45s under that name. They became known as Smoke in mid-1968. They later moved on to San Francisco where they gigged mainly at biker venues.

Led by John Orvis, who composed all their material, their music can best be described as "psychedelic boogie", epitomised by the nineteen minute M.C. Boogie on the first album and nine minute Greased Lightnin on the second. Loads of energy, jiving vocals, good guitar solos and powerful organ parts. The second album was produced by Jimmie Haskell, one of the best producers/arrangers operating in the California studios in the sixties. Beyer remained in California to play for Smith and Canned Heat and then in fellow Texan Gary Myrick's band. Phil Parker went on to play with the bluesman Shakey Jake Harris.
