One of the last, if not the last psychedelic record to appear on the International Artists label at the dawn of the 70s – the wild album from Endel St Cloud – with a snide sense of humor and a groove that ranges from piano rockers to organ riffery and lumbering drum ferocity! It's not ... read moreCD

Glorious power pop from South London – driving work from the Exits! The spectre of early Elvis Costello hovers over The Exits, particularly in the vocal department – but the uber catchy hooks and buzzing guitars have more of an all purpose sheen. Strong stuff from the power pop ... read moreCD

Mirror ... CD Drag City, Late 90s. Used ....

It's hard to get any more tripped out than this at the end of the 60s – and this one and only album by Fool kind of out-Peppers Sgt Peppers!

Aggro avant rock from Foot Village – with a heavy vibe, but that heft comes almost purely from drums, percussion and intense vocals!

The Fourmyula may have a weird name, but their groove is totally great – a wicked approach to pop psych that was lost to the larger 60s world outside of New Zealand – but which has gotten a really rich revival in recent years! The approach is similar to US work of the time – a ... read moreCD
