Sweet & Sour Psych. LP.
This compilation features some of the best artist on the current psychedelic scene, and as the title suggests it's a broad kaleidoscopic church. Kicking off with an audacious garage psych cover version of a Girls Aloud track by South London's Dave's Doors Of Perception, this is a trip that's varied, enthralling and potent. Girl groups of a less footballer-predatory nature also feature, Abjects are a young garage-punk girl trio; Novella (except for the drummer) are a more melodic girl band, also from London, and Nottingham based group, The Soundcarriers, include an intoxicating female vocal texture. A more typically sixties sound is provided by Miracle Glass Company, Chariots, and young guns on the scene, The Chessmen. Heavier tracks are care of The Oscillation and Psyence. Arguably the 'sweetest' number comes from Joel Gion, best known as a member of Brian Jonestown Massacre. The 'sourest', definitely the scariest, from Rex Speedway & The Fortune Tellers.
