1969's 'A Lovely Sight', Pisces' only attempt at an LP, never made wax; but the fuzz guitar phrases and tambourine shuffle of 'Dear One' instantly illustrate the band's woozy realm. Deeper inside, bass scales borrowed from Sgt. Pepper give way to Who moves wrecked by bad fidelity and harsh intrusions of found sounds. Jefferson Airplane's swirled, lysergic Haight Street utopia melds with the urban narcosis of the Velvet Underground's East Village. But Pisces hailed from another ghost town altogether: Rockford, Illinois, where rusted, endless plains bear close resemblance to a bummer acid trip or a junkie's rock bottom. In 1969, the industrial Midwest was hurting for the hard stuff, but what it got was plenty of the White Album - enough to have Jim Krein, Paul DiVenti, and Linda Bruner recording through a glass onion all their own. The unsettling balance of their unissued LP combines homespun psychedelic vision and secondhand studio trickery with naive readings of the rock sound of the day, resulting in a diverse, haunted rock headspace few coastal bands ever flew through, let alone over.

WEE - YOU CAN FLY ON MY AEROPLANE

WEE - YOU CAN FLY ON MY AEROPLANE

This '70s LP, recorded in Columbus, Ohio and featuring one Norman Whiteside, is a genuine undergroud soul cult classic, financed by the world of street prostitution(!). The remarkably well performed music is firmly ensconced in 'Innervisions'-era Stevie Wonder, with nary a ... read more »

 

PRETTY - MUSTACHE IN YOUR FACE (2X7")

PRETTY - MUSTACHE IN YOUR FACE (2X7")

Recorded in an actual cave in western Missouri, the quartet formerly known as the Fabulous Four emerged from the depths in 1969 with an albums worth of wasted psychedelia. Helmed by the Electric Prunes Michael Quint, the session produced one promo-only 45, bearing the truly ... read more »

 

COWELL, JEFF - LUCKY STRIKES & LIQUID GOLD

COWELL, JEFF - LUCKY STRIKES & LIQUID GOLD

Ten road-weary tales from the wrong side of outlaw country. Jeff Cowell may have huffed the same narcotic air as Townes Van Zandt and David Allan Coe, but hunkered far from the Nashville city limits, nary a Cash or Paycheck would drunkenly slur through his tunes. Recorded ... read more »

 

MEGIRA, CHARLIE - TOMORROW'S GONE (2LP)

MEGIRA, CHARLIE - TOMORROW'S GONE (2LP)

The bastard love child of Elvis and Lux Interior, Israeli guitarist Charlie Megira brewed a heady amalgam of '50s trash rock, surf-y tremolo, and reverb-drenched goth during his all-too-brief 44 trips around the sun. He recorded seven albums worth of material in 15 years, ... read more »
