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 . . . .
