My pal Brad lives in Milwaukee, he has a hand in (or is responsible for) TRTRKMMR, NO SANCTUARY, and OTEASANEK, and he likes making tapes. Fortunately for me, I have been on the receiving end of a few of them over the years. And fortunately for you, I like to share. As the title suggests, the next 90 minutes of your life are about to be filled with mind melting doses of heavy '70s psych and hard rock - guitar solos will pan from side to side and raspy men will howl with a pained intensity while a parade of drummers effortlessly bash the shit out of their kits - but never forget to swing. Especially amazing jams include NIGHT SUN and the start of the ANTROBUS song, but there is not a single clunker on this mix. Fans of the Seeds Of Inspiration cassette will want to jump on this immediately, those who enjoy rock 'n roll should do likewise.
In the interest of completism, Brad's tape came with the following liner notes for the uninitiated:1) The name "INCREDIBLE HOG" was a play on the comic book series "The Incredible Hulk." 2) DEMIAN is post-BUBBLE PUPPY. 3) ANTROBUS was previously known as IRON CLAW. 4) BUFFALO were the first non-British band signed by Vertigo Records, they were from Australia. 5) LEAFHOUND developed outy of the remains of BLACK CAT BONES. 6) JERICHO were one of the few hard rock bands to come out of Israel in the 1970s, previously known as JERICHO JONES. 7) THE FLYING HAT BAND was Glenn Tipton's pre-JUDAS PRIEST project. 8) NOVEMBER were one of the first Swedish hard rock bands to sing entirely in Swedish, they put out three albums and were quite successful in Scandinavia. 9) LINCOLN STREET EXIT were one of the few (if not only) mid '60s, all-Native American (New Mexico Sioux) hard rock bands to actively records and tour. 10) Marky Ramone played drums for DUST before moving on to play with Richard Hell's VOIDOIDS and then the RAMONES. 11) DAEMON was formed by two members of ATOMIC ROOSTER, the band name was later changed to BULLETT and then HARD STUFF. 12) The PENTAGRAM track is from the 1972 demo, members were also in STONE BUNNY and BEDEMON around that time.
