Open Mind- Magic Potion

The band was formed in the mid 1960s by four musicians from Putney, South London.Initially named The Drag Set, they released a little-known single in February 1967, "Day and Night"/"Get Out of My Way". Shortly thereafter, they changed their name to The Open Mind and in July 1969 released a self-titled LP which has since become a highly sought-after collectible.

Le Orme - Ad Gloriam

The cover of Le Orme's Ad Gloriam is about as psychedelic as it is possible to be or imagine; it is a swirl of color and a collage of pop-art images, featuring drawings (and photos) of the band members and various op-art images of well-endowed women scattered amid butterflies and geometric shapes.

The Invaders - Turn On The Sun

The rise of the Invaders can be traced directly to the South African tour in March 1961 of Cliff Richard and the Shadows. Richard and The Shadows were appearing at the Feather Market Hall in Port Elizabeth, a concert for which twenty-one year old John Henry Burke (born 23 March 1940) of Uitenhage had purchased a ticket.

Daniel Poulter will be familiar to a lot of you as lead singer / guitarist for neo-psychedelic / freakbeat outfit The Dolly Rocker Movement, who have been around since 2002 and released a bunch of gems (most recently "Your Side of Town" earlier on this year.)
After such a prolific and successful time of it with the Dolly Rocker Movement then, it may come as some surprise to see Poulter venturing out on his own which is exactly what he's doing here under the moniker of the Dandelion.

Mercury Rev - Syringe Mouth

I saw Mercury Rev support Ride in Portsmouth, i was a bit narked off actually as the band were splitting support dates with Verve who i really wanted to see... i shouldn't have been annoyed as Mercury Rev were fantastic , they next played in 1993 at the Wedgewood Rooms,  i was going to the loo in the venue before the show, the band were sat in the foyer 2 minutes before they were due onstage, the singer at the time David Baker was saying to the rest of the band....."i wanna play the one that goes dum de dum dah!" as they wrote the set list....proper mental... they blew the place apart playing most of this album including a 20 minute long version of very sleepy rivers.... cool a f*ck
