In early 1967 they went to San Francisco to work for a local music manager named Matthew Katz. Katz was the original manager for Jefferson Airplane, Moby Grape and later It's a Beautiful Day. He talked West Coast Natural Gas into signing a contract with him but they didn't realize at the time, being young and stupid. that basically they signed over everything to him. They went to the studio and recorded some original tunes: A Favor, Go Run and Play, The Jumping Frog, Hashish, Water or Wine, Beyond This Place, and Two's A Pair. In early 1968 the band broke up and went back to Seattle. Katz released a single - Go Run and Play / A Favor on his S.F. Sound label under the name West Coast Natural Gas. Later he released a compilation album - the first San Francisco Sound sampler - called "Fifth Pipe Dream". The four songs mentioned before, Water or Wine, Hashish, Beyond This Place and Two's A Pair were the ones recorded by WCNG and relabeled by Katz as Indian Puddin' and Pipe.

They signed with the notorious Mathew Katz (whose litigation with the Airplane and Moby Grape lasted 20 and 39 years, respectively) and moved to San Francisco in 1968 For obscure reasons, Katz had them change their name to Indian Puddin and Pipe, even thought there was another band with that name (also managed by him).
...
Notorious San Francisco manager Mathew Katz (the first manager of Jefferson Airplane and Moby Grape) had determined the names of his next rock groups but had no members for the groups. He met LaFlamme, and connected LaFlamme and his keyboard playing wife Linda with a teenager Katz had met while she was bagging groceries. The LaFlammes liked singer Patti Santos, and in Fall 1967 agreed to form a group called It's A Beautiful Day that was managed by Katz.
...
Katz had started to assemble a band, but the LaFlammes didn't particularly like the players. LaFlamme tried out bassist Jaime Leopold from Orkustra, but he didn't fit the group. Katz refused to let the group play locally, but sent the group to play six weeks at an obscure venue in Seattle that he managed (the Encore Ballroom). When the group returned at the end of 1967, they began their split with Katz, although that would be mired in difficult and expensive lawsuits for the next two decades.
