Band to watch: The Liquorice Experiment

It's been a while since we've done a 'band to watch' piece, but every now and then a new band comes along that you simply just want everyone to hear and everyone to love! One of those bands we are extremely grateful to have stumbled across are the terrifically groovy Liquorice Experiment. Based in London, this … Continue reading Band to watch: The Liquorice Experiment

Album review: Lake Ruth – Birds of America

Words by Gareth Thompson Lake Ruth aren’t the first band to evoke those neon nights when our need for affection, or connection, grips deepest. But this New York act, formed in 2015 by Hewson Chen, lends its own twist to rock’s long and heartsore history. Key to their sound is vocalist Allison Brice, whose giddy … Continue reading Album review: Lake Ruth – Birds of America

Album review: The Baroques (1967)

In some dark and desolate woods somewhere in the western hemisphere, an individual in their late 20’s turns on their record player, with the intent to have a pleasant time through the gripping power of music. What they find, as they turn the volume up to the highest possible decibels that their musical machine can … Continue reading Album review: The Baroques (1967)

Green Seagull – (I Used To Dream In) Black And White

Words by Jack Hopkin I discovered pretty soon after I first laid ears on Green Seagull's new single that I, too, used to dream in black and white. Little did I realise that when my resident stork landed this lysergic faberge egg of a single on my lap that I'd fall so head over heels … Continue reading Green Seagull – (I Used To Dream In) Black And White

Album review: The Smoke – It’s Smoke Time (1967)

In a vast sea of psychedelic-pop creations from the year 1967, The Smoke stand tall and proud. As they should, since their sound is one that will surreptitiously stick itself to the eardrums of any unknowing listener. A good chunk of that stems from lead singer Mick Rowley’s enticing vocals, which were very unique for the … Continue reading Album review: The Smoke – It’s Smoke Time (1967)

Classic album review: Elmer Gantry’s Velvet Opera (1968)

On a planet where many people throughout the course of history never got their dues, Elmer Gantry’s Velvet Opera are a perfect example. Exuding extreme talent throughout the album, one would wonder why they never made it big. What can I say? Life is unfair sometimes. These guys deserved to be more famous than they … Continue reading Classic album review: Elmer Gantry’s Velvet Opera (1968)

Classic album review: Marmalade – There’s A Lot Of It About (1968)

At a time where a lot of bands were going for otherworldly psychedelic 'mind-crashers', Marmalade went another direction. They had a very commercial sounding aura about them, and after four failed singles, they finally made the top 10 of the U.K. Charts. Fortunately for them, unlike massive bands like the Small Faces and The Move, … Continue reading Classic album review: Marmalade – There’s A Lot Of It About (1968)
