Peace, Love and Fuzz

Tip-Top psych band the Pink Mountaintops at Low Spirits TONIGHT!

Play Youtube Video
Pink Mountaintops "North Hollywood Microwaves" (NSFW!)

The weirder and, in this writer's opinion, the more interesting of Stephen McBean's two mountain-named bands (the other being Black Mountain) the Pink Mountaintops is playing Low Spirits tonight. No self-respecting lover of drug music will miss this. My friend Pierre LaFarge turned me on to this Vancouver-based bunch of weirdoes a week or so ago and there's been nothing else on my speakers since. Can't wait for the sun to set so we can all see the Pink Mountaintops, who are touring in support of their new album Get Back. Did I mention the show is only TEN BUCKS!? C'mon!

Local and soon-to-be-no-more mysterions the Elevator Boys and psych-practitioners YOU open.

NiX!

“NiX Comics Quarterly,” that is

I met “NiX” publisher and Columbus, Ohio, resident Ken Eppstein after getting an update from his page on garagepunk.com. Eppstein is a member of the GaragePunk Podcast Network, an assemblage of dozens of rock and roll shows spanning psychedelia, punk, soul, surf and lo-fi. He was soliciting support for the first issue of his comic by selling vinyl leftovers from his shuttered store, Evil Empire Records. When I hear about a guy selling records to fundof all thingsthe publishing of a comic book, I pay attention.

The Shivas

Show Up!

The Shivas

Psychedelic transformer

If you’re looking for a by-the-numbers revival psych band wearing paisley shirts and Cuban heels, don’t bother with The Shivas. If, however, you prefer a faithful ’60s sound taken to the next level, look no further. The Shivas is what you seek. Like the Hindu deity for which the band is named, this group is the Destroyer. That is, destruction in its highest form: transformation.

The Jim Sullivan Story

Jim Sullivan was an American musician who in 1975 left his wife and son on the West Coast, striking out for Nashville to find success. He didn’t make it there, thoughhis car was found abandoned and motel room unused outside of Santa Rosa, N.M. In ‘69 Sullivan had released U.F.O., an album backed by the acclaimed Wrecking Crewsession musicians employed by Phil Spector on numerous hit songs. Sullivan and his psych-folk-rock masterpiece went mostly unnoticed until late last year when crate-diggin’ reissue label Light In The Attic rereleased U.F.O. NPR’s “All Things Considered” did a story on the albumlisten here. Find out more about Sullivan, listen to audio samples or buy the record here.
