Samuel Prody (1970)

More brainstorming heavy psyche from my favorite period of British music. This is a guitar burnout of epic proportions in the same acid fried greasy style as the Pink Faries and May Blitz. This is their only record that they produced which is one hell of a shame as they really are a great unit and the playing is fantastic including some proper phased out jams.Heavy and freaky, indeed , i cant get enough of it :) This and May Blitz are soundtracking my summer and its a big ole fat greasy sun !

The Spiritual Highjackers - Alzir (MTB)

At the same time as we made The Barretts recordings for MTB records we came into contact with The Spiritual Highjackers and Tonal signed them up straight away no messing. I only saw them live twice and it was a experience ill never forget, playing forgotten 60's psych classics from the UK and US the band were a shadowy bunch much like the Residents playing behind a liquid disc projected white screen the only visible sign of the band their elongated, distorted figures in silhouette lit from behind but oozing lysergic madness from their delay and phaser units. This is also the 1st time this has been made available since the ultra rare recordings on MTB are now deleted and the band sunk back into obscurity never to be heard of again . . . .

The Barretts - Flapdoodle Dealings (MTB)

In 1993 when i was in London i was friends with a bunch of guys all of us in bands/running labels etc. and we ended up jamming together all the time as we all shared the same studio. We were all massive psychadelic music freeks and discovered a love of all things Syd. We decided to get some stuff on tape, and soon other friends were asking us to play gigs so we thought "What the hell " and did 5 gigs around Londontown. We played Oval,Kilburn.The Monarch in Camden and 2 gigs at Fungus Mungus veggie restaurant in Battersea in the winter of 1993/94 all gigs were rammed to the point of us having to play in the shop window at Fungus to bemused looks from the general public :) the gigs were a riot of period clothing,liquid disc projections,psychadelics and much grooving to the sounds of early Pink Floyd and Syds solo stuff. Anyhow for the first time ever im making the few recordings i have from this period available as Syd has sadly passed on and now more than ever it feels right to get his music heard so enjoy

May Blitz (Vertigo)

May Blitz along with the Groundhogs and The Pink Faries define a time in British music when times where changing.Gone were all the faux psychadelic tracks and everyone was turning prog so some British bands decided to get their heads down and just rock out, May Blitz being one of the best, featuring ex-Jeff Beck Group member Tony Newman (drums), who recruited Canadians James Black (lead guitar, vocals) and Reid Hudson (bass and vocals) in 1969 to form one of the best of the UK power trios. Their debut album "May Blitz" was released on Vertigo (6360 007) in 1970 but despite containing some excellent original heavy music sold moderately and was followed in 1971 in much the same direction by "The 2nd of May" pure doped up,psychadelic boogie merchants of the highest order :D
