As promised, fresh off the vinyl ripper, Volume 14 of the ISSS series. For once, instead of the usual acetates and promos, we have an interesting collection of overlooked songs, mostly from 45s, coming from all over the world. On this platter, you will find a track sung in Greek and for those of you with a tut on the end of your tongue cos it's not sung in the Queen's dear English, sorry it's not too late. Open up your mind (or learn Greek) and cor blimey! there's two of the blighters! So where are all those obscure American and British bands the "Real Psychedelic" stuff? Up your arse second shelf, mate… we start off this comp with a great unearthed gem of British Psych Pop by "Great Uncle Alfred". "Ex-Beauty Queen" carries on regardless of normality and sits neatly on the throne of insanity with a sitar flavored romp complete with the late sixties affection for rousing the Cossacks (Hey! Hey! Hey!) It only gets better with an early Giorgio Moroder song (yes, of Disco fame) and French, Belgian, Dutch and Australian gems. This will have you searching the dollar bins again for strange "foreign" 45s… Many a surprise is still waiting to be unearthed. (Adapted from the liner notes)
Meanwhile, get a taste of candy coloured dreams here.
