Item ID: 482563

Recording a solo album in 1969 allowed Troggs guitarist Chris Britton to take a greater artistic freedom, though 'As I Am' didn't veer too far from The Troggs' standard blend of poppy psychedelia and garage rock, constructed with a particular English bent. Yet, with Britton composing all of the songs except one (his version of Larry Weiss' 'Evil Woman'), the material is surprisingly varied, with opener 'Sit Down Beside Me' and tracks like 'Fly With Me' are rocking grooves with
bright brass, Latinesque percussion and a bit of psychedelic phasing, while 'No Sense In Hiding' is a slinky blues and 'Sleep My Love' is pure dreamy psych. A rare and underappreciated gem that will appeal to all Troggs fans and lovers of British psychedelia more generally.

STACK WADDY - BUGGER OFF!

'Bugger Off!' picked up where its predecessor left off, and rampaged on from there. Covers of Zappa's 'Willy The Pimp' and The Kinks' 'You Really Got Me' might have seemed a little obvious, but both are battered down with such a glorious lack of finesse that it's impossible ... read more »
