Mushroom are back with their first new release in several years. “Psychedelic Soul On Wax (Eldridge Cleaver vs Timothy Leary)” is the title track of this 12” blue vinyl single, an addendum to band-leader Pat Thomas’ book “Listen Whitey!: The Sounds of Black Power”. The other side features suitably radical music from the session that resulted in “Naked, Stoned & Stabbed”, their last album on 4 Zero, plus a cover of “Let The Sun Shine In” featuring Caroleen Beatty and Ralph Carney. We have a really small number of these available so contact us directly if you’re interested…
We’re thrilled to announce the release of “The Best Of Slag Van Blowdriver”, especially recorded as part of the soundtrack to Julian Cope’s acclaimed novel, One Three One, the artist has collaborated with Slomo’s Holy McGrail to create this gigantic two-track post-rave Krautrock overload – bringing back to life the epic minor-key music of villain Judge Barry Hertzog, whose omnipresence pervades the novel’s pages. It will be released on 28th February in a limited edition of just 200 CDs from Head Heritage and our Bandcamp store.
We’ve just opened up a new store at Bandcamp – follow this link. All our releases can be previewed there (and bought!). Send me a message or ‘like’ our Facebook page and I’ll send you a free download code for a track of your choice.
We’ve just got the rough mix of the Sentient gig recorded at the Real Music Club, Brighton, a couple of weeks ago, this time at the Prince Albert. It’s every bit as good, possibly better, than their inaugural show with a line up that now features Joie Hinton from the Ozrics on keyboards and Tanya Smart from the Oroonies on drums, along with Subs on bass and Steffe on guitar/vocals. Who knows in what guise it will get released or even when so in the meantime here is review of the original gig we released on CD a few months ago. In their review, Terrascope concluded “All in all this is a must have album that combines a wide range of styles from jazz to trance to funk and afro beat all tied together with a psychedelic improvisational sound that works perfectly. This is a CD that rewards repeated listening, each time you hear it you pick up intricacies and depths that you missed on previous playing”. You can buy the CD here, and the next Sentient gig is at Kozfest on July 27th.
