The set includes material from pre-Creation combo The Mark Four, the Creation's recordings for the German Vogue/Pop imprint (including the LP 'Painterman' and all the singles' A- and B-sides) and more. The DVD features an interview, five songs from The Creation's two live appearances on the legendary German '60s TV show 'Beat Beat Beat' and 21 songs from the band's reunion concerts in the '90s CD $65 SKU:21843

DEEP SIX(UK)-INTRODUCING(Hollies/Beatles/Who style pure 60s mod) Label:HEAVY SOUL These 14 tracks were played with maximum rhythm and soul, which is not surprising if you know that Mark 'Syd' McGounden wrote nearly all of 'em.

Expect melody, harmony, well-crafted songs and an obvious nod to catchy '60s beat-pop CD $16 SKU:21844

DSW -DUST STORM WARNING (Italian psych stoner rock)Label:ACID COSMONAUT DSW (Dust Storm Warning) is a pretty damn cool psychedelic stoner rock band from Italy. A four piece with bass, drums, guitar and vocals. Leadsinger Wolf has a pretty deep gruff voice and you'll really like his vocal delivery and feeling. The style is dirty, heavy, raw stoner rock riffing, wrapped in short and longer tracks. CD $14 SKU:21807

KARKARA - CRYSTAL GAZER(explosive 70s style garage fuzz power trio)Label:STOLEN BODY Karkara are an explosive power trio that furiously mixes garage and fuzz with Middle Eastern sounds. Created in 2017 in Toulouse, France, inspired by the psychedelic rock scene of the Middle East and the Maghreb of the '60s and '70s, the band combines its traditional inspirations with a taste for garagefuzz and contemporary krautrock. Even going so far as to use their favourite atypical instrument -the didgeridoo- the three members take pleasure in pushing the boundaries of the genre further and take their audience into a mystical and indomitable world. CD $17 SKU:21873

ON AND ONS -Welcome Aboard(Aussie garage rock/powerpoppers)Label:CITADEL Welcome Aboard', the second album by these Australian garage rock/powerpoppers, is produced by band members Glenn and Clyde and mixed once again by Dennis Wilson of early '70s Australian band Khavas Jute. The album features 13 songs that follow and expand upon the guitar-driven sound of the previous disc with vocal harmonies abounding.

SCHIZOPHONICS-PEOPLE IN THE SKY (MC5, Stooges, James Brown, Hendrix and Iggy Pop style)Label:PIG BABY This San Diego-based combo is inspired by (and reminds of) the rock'n'roll energy and showmanship that fueled a.o. The MC5, Stooges, James Brown, Hendrix and Iggy Pop. 'People In The Sky', the band's sophomore full-length, is characterized by the same rawness as The Schizophonics' live shows. CD $17 SKU:21768

CHICKENBACKERS -YEH, RIGHT, YEAH!(60s Merseybeat sound)Label:SOUNDFLAT The Chickenbackers nail that '60s Merseybeat sound perfectly with their catchy melodies, tight surfy guitars and great harmonies!

GREEK THEATRE-Broken Circle(Sweden's premier west-coast influenced psych )Label:SUGARBUSH The long awaited second album by Sweden's premier west-coast influenced psych act. This time around the material dives much deeper into full-on psychedelia, yet retains -and even improves on- the band's excellent songwriting. While a lot of contemporary psych bands revel in endless blasts of somewhat monotonous spacerock, it has become a rare thing to find an album of song based psychedelia, which is exactly what 'Broken Circle' is. This edition is limited to only 200 copies on black vinyl. LP $22 SKU:21758

QUATERMASS (ST (70s power prog-rock trio) DBL Label:AKARMA Repress. Quartermass made one self-titled album in 1970 and that was the end of them. Its a shame that they came and went so fast. They could have been very popular with the proper management and backing, but it was not meant to be. This group was a power prog-rock trio along the lines of the early Atomic Rooster. The trio was John Gustafson (vocals, bass), Mick Underwood (drums), and Pete Robinson (keyboards). John Gustafson voice was similar to Ian Gillans. Their sound was not only interesting and captivating; it was complete and full-bodied with the three people and the three instruments that they played. We can only wonder what could have happened if they met with more success and continued to develop. We are glad that we have this great album to enjoy and to add to our prog-rock classics lists LP $29 SKU:21881

TOKYO BLUES BREAKERS-ST (Japanese time warp 1969!)Label:SOUNDFLAT Three mad dogs that have time-warped from 1969! They break the Delta blues, '60s garage, Motow n, punk - because they love them! Also, they love VOX and Rickenbacker and Theremin. (but they don't break these... Because expensive!). These guys are what you can call the forefront of the next Japanese garage scene! Experience wild rhythms, runaway guitars and beautiful croaky voices from beginning till end. Alongside songs like 'Lead Guitar Side Guitar' with cheeky harmonica and a cool rhythm & beat and a heavy portion of garagepunk Japanese-style you will find incredibly catchy and highly addictive tunes like 'Yardbirds Is Playing At My House' that once you've heard them, you'll catch yourself humming weeks later! The trio also included a wild cover-version of Manfred Mann's '5-4-3-2-1' and a lo-fi pop-punky version of the hit-song/ballad 'Mata Au Hi Made' by Japanese Tom Jones Kiyohiko Ozaki that fit in with their original songs perfectly. So get yourselves ready for a fantastic rocking debut by some truly wild Japanese!! LP $18 SKU:21596

TRIPSICHORD -ST(California 60s/70s DOUBLE LP GATEFOLD Label:AKARMA Repress! This is one of the most experienced Californian groups in the '60s/'70s, although they were almost disregarded. This album was originally released on two different labels, Janus and San Francisco Sound, therefore a lot of confusion has been made about its very first edition. Anyway, both of them are rare and expensive. This album and a few 7"s are actually everything Tripsichord ever recorded. They were produced by Matthew Katz (who had produced Moby Grape) and their music is based on that acid and psychedelic sound from California, very close to Quicksilver Messenger Service, with its weaving of excellent quality solos. They weren't lucky and never got the success they deserved, but they have all the characters of a great band LP $28 SKU:21883

BACK IN STOCK!

DUNST -ARCHIMEDES WAFFEN(heavy psych prog)Label:WORLD IN SOUND "Originally recorded in 2011 and digitally released in 2013, the second and final full-length from German progressive heavy psych instrumentalists DUNST, 'Archimedes Waffen', sees a revived presence in the physical realm thanks to a vinyl issue on Electric Magic Records and this CD-release by World In Sound. Dunst released their s/t debut in 2011, and on this follow-up they deliver some heavy psychedelic jamming. Over the course of six extended tracks, they explore the spaces between such heavyweights as Colour Haze, My Sleeping Karma, Causa Sui, and Samsara Blues Experiment, while working in the pursuit of their own musical identity." (JJ Koczan, The Obelisk CD $14 SKU:21746

ILLIAD- A SAD DAY ON PLUTO(60s flower power/Pink Floyd stye!)-Label:WORLD IN SOUND The iLLiad is a young quintet from Ohio.Contains 13 original tunes reflecting a tasty spectrum between early Pink Floyd jamming, 60s garage/flower-power and loner Folk style, and feature very catchy lyrics combined with interesting "psychedelicate" melodies. CD $12 SKU:21747

LUCK OF EDEN HALL -SUBTERRENE(swirling psych magic )-Label:MYOPIC Originally formed in the early nineties, the band reformed in 2002 resulting in this album which is brimming with swirling psych magic played and produced by Greg Curvey and Mark Lofgren. After the reverbed and phased psychedelia of "Baby Moon", the album lifts off with some dextrous guitar playing that levitates "Device" high in the clouds, a rippling flute adding shards of light to the tune. A poppier Steve Hillage vibe is created on the title track, the drums well up in the mix as the guitar drives through the song with reckless abandon, held together by huge washes of synths that reverberate across the room. Consistently strong throughout, fans of Tyrnaround, Dukes Of Stratosphear, Reefus Moon, or Bevis Frond will not be disappointed, as the album is a hook-laden psych-pop classic with a wonderfully rich and warm production that tumbles out of the speakers with lysergic glee. On the drifting "Whereever Sends" a west-coast feel is magically invoked, the instruments dancing around each other like sunlight on crystal, full of blissful thoughts. Finally the band take us home with the floatation tank happiness of "Goodnight" the perfect way to close this softly spoken trip inside your head. (Simon Lewis) CD $17 SKU:21660

SUN & THE WOLF-SALUTATIONS (fuzz driven psych Beatles era)-Label:WORLD IN SOUND 'Salutations', their second full length, once again opens up the gates to a psychedelic soaked wonderland.

'Salutations' offers an exciting and unexpectedly colourful spectrum throughout its duration! CD $14 SKU:21754

VERDURE- CROSS & SATELLITE STATION(Acid folk T REX infl)-Label:LEXICON DEVIL Bay Area psychster DONOVAN QUINN with an eclectic blend of acid-folk sounds, delivered with strong songwriting, great pop hooks, aching, lo-fi vocals, strummed guitars, loops, organ, scattered percussion and samples and an occasional burst of fuzzed guitar. For fans of TYRANNOSAURUS REX, SKIP SPENCE'S OAR, NIKKI SUDDEN/EPIC SOUNDTRACKS, JANDEK and the like. CD $10 SKU:21773

VIBRAVOID-INTERGALACTIC ACID FREAK OUT ORGASM-Label:STONED KARMA Connoisseurs of krautrock know about its roots - Vibravoid brought back, with their Pink Floyd interpretations, an essential source of inspiration of krautrock to the legendary Finkenbach Festival. This also reveals the crucial differences between Vibravoid and the current hipster bands, who misinterpret Pink Floyd songs in gothic or heavy metal garb as alleged psych rock. CD $15 SKU:21359

VOLCANICS -OH CRASH (Scientists,Stooges/MC5 style) Label:CITADEL No hype, just stripped down rock'n'roll at its best, Perth's Volcanics are back with their fourth studio album. 'Oh Crash', like its predecessors 'Get A Move' and 'Transmission', is produced by Radio Birdman's Rob Younger. Inspired by local Perth acts The Scientists and The Victims, the band also pays homage to The Stooges and MC5. Regardless, their sound is their own brand of raw and explosive rock, now notably bolstered by the fact the band has become a five-piece due to the addition of a second guitarist CD $14 SKU:21663

EXOTIC-O-RAMA + CD- VOL 2 Rare 45s from the 50s and 60s!-Label:JUKEBOX MUSIC FACTORY Exotic-O-Rama' is certainly the most absurd and out-of-the-ordinary, the most fun and convivial series of '50s and '60s tunes yet compiled by dear ole El Vidocq. And Volume 2 presents a selection even more audacious than its smashing predecessor. Embark upon an eclectic safari through a lush pacotille of melodies, from groovy R'n'B mangroves (The Ramrocks) home to nestling toucans (The Century Five), to head-shrinking rockers (Bob Vaught) and doo-wopping crocs (The El Capris), not to mention a few veritable birds of paradise (Rosco Gordon)... Wildlife worthy of an Ed Wood flick! But while the ambiance often turns outrageous, keep in mind that these exotic ditties were concocted by the same trailblazing performers who would inspire Lux Interior of The Cramps and Fred Schneider of the B-52s... While most of the groups comprise colorfully daubed Yanks, there's also a stray Italian (Franco Ei "G5") and a passel of playful Mexicans (The Stardusters). The album art, signed Jampur Fraize, is one of the most sumptuous to date, which is saying something. Yet another tangy treat for the eyes and ears, brought to you by El Vidocq and his vine-swinging comrades.. COMP LP $22 SKU:20945

Since their fabulous debut album "Hacia El Sol Rojo" the group evolved into a mighty tight "wall of sound" (not just live on stage); but still keeping their sensitive feeling to hypnotize a wide spectrum of Rock freaks who like it intense! - Look forward to hard driven riff/solo guitars, pumpin overdosed bass, crazynwild marching tribal drums, combined with outer space effects & noises - the dark euphoria will make you stand up and dance!
