Bent Wind

Profile:
Bent Wind was formed in Toronto, Ontario Canada in 1969 and managed to record and release the LP 'Sussex' that year on Merv Buchanan's Trend label in Canada. Sussex is a street name in Toronto where the band members practiced.
With a limited pressing of (no more than 200) during its original run, the vinyl LP has since become a rarity in the Canadian music Collector's market, fetching up to $5000 for a copy if you could find it. In 2018, a copy was sold for $8000 USD.
This 1969 holy grail of Canadian heavy psych, Sussex was remastered and re-released with a limited run of 400 black vinyl pressings and 100 gold vinyl pressings in 2018. Bent Wind - Sussex

In 1989 the band, under the control of Marty Roth, reformed with new members and recorded their sophomore follow-up -- 20 years later -- called 'The Fourth Line Is...You Will'.

The band moved to CD with the release of their third album in 1996 entitled 'Shadows On The Wall'. Roth once again altered the band line-up and was also supported by a host of other musicians including Glen Jessamy, Stefan Janicki, Laura Dunn, Leslie Harwood-Jones, Chantal Legault, Cody Blacksky, Colleen Allen, Tortoise Blue, Mark Bajona, Robert Brockie, Roy Kenner and Maddie Willis.

Roth had most recently uncovered live recordings of the original Bent Wind from Ryerson Polytechnical in 1969 and has released it in 2005 on CD format, remastered.
