THE PURPLE MERKINS created mainly crude, spontaneous '66-styled garage punk home-made recordings, while their alter-ego Marshmallow Overcoat counterparts explored a (hopefully) more sophisticated (and unfortunately more expensive) studio approach. 19 songs accumulated from 1992-1998 for a series of 45s, gathered together for the “MERKMINMANIA!” LP.

The vinyl version was released in 1998 on Italy's Psych-Out Records and is long out of print. We are proud to announce that Merkinmania! is now available as a Dionysus CD in the USA.

The new CD has all new color artwork, complete liner notes and previously unseen photos. Original sessions producer Timothy Gassen carefully remastered the audio to create the best sounding Merkins disc ever.
