Vol. 2: Purple Vinyl LP
Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Label: Jackpot Records
Release Date: 17th June
Second outing from a band who from their debut album were already a curious set, the pop edges are pushed a little out of this record in favour of the more experimental psychedelic tones of their debut. There's influences from the east, as was the flavour of the day but there's also some motorik rhythms with heavy grooves that make this an all together more danceable and focused record.
For those who dig: psych pop, 60s jangle pop, dark sinister 60s rock and oddball songwriting.
Sourced From The Master Tapes. Original Mono Mixes. Initially Released 1967. Includes printed inner sleeve with rare master reel photos. “Every Song in this album has been written, arranged, sung and played by the group. No one censored us. We got to say everything we wanted to say, in the way we wanted to say it.” Bob Marley (1967). Released in 1967 on Reprise Records as a follow up to Part One, Vol. 2 takes the band into more ambitious territory. Reaching out to more psychedelic territory than the debut LP, Vol. 2 maintains their unique pop sound mixed with ominous fuzz guitar, jumping from graceful folk-rock to wailing guitar freakouts, to multilayered avant-garde compositions at a moment’s notice. First time reissued in mono, from the original master tapes.
