"The Misanthropic Dufflecoat EP

Further greetings from vinyland. A real corker for you this time. Once again well over 15 minutes of prime aural ecstacy. Side one kicks off with KALEIDOSCOPE (The American version) and the first of two unreleased track from 1965. 'I'm A Hog For You' neatly encapsulates the cross-over from bluesy beat into something altogether more errmm.. Wait for the bluesharp solo, it'll do you in! PT offers humble thanks to Chris Darrow for donating the two tracks, both lifted from an incredibly incredible acetate (hence the crackles). Next it's Bridgwater calling, and current darlings of the Somerset Scene(?), THE ALCHEMYSTS who provide for your entertainment a grungedrunk gem called 'Blind Side'. Read about them elsewhere in this mag.
Side Two opens with the second of the KALEIDOSCOPE tracks, a two and a half minute voyage into very strange territories called 'Little Orphan Annie'. Quite a revelation! We wind up with a brand new slice of Oriental insanity from the very excellent WHITE HEAVEN. Japan's modern equivalent of Quicksilver/Blue Cheer (well, sort of) storm their way through 'Silver Current'. As usual, much gratitude must go to the bands and artists who offer their creations for no financial return. Brilliant. Finally, if anyone was wondering who was playing the splendid lead guitar on last issue's track from The McCarty Band, it was a fellow named John Idan, who we should have mentioned before, but didn't."
