Hello friends. Anyone have a stray original Pat Stevens insert they’d be willing to sell me? Message me if so, please!

In '77 they just decided to show us the future and they did it. In 2020 only 1620 Discogs listeners got this absolute masterwork in their collections. It's a big problem, but more than this, that's the sign of how culturally disturbing the early Chrome records remain after all this time

Does anyone know how many copies approx were printed of the first run on Siren of Alien Soundtracks - I can't seem to find any info on this

This record cuts a swath through a lot of punk, proto punk, psych or what ever category you can think of. A truly original record that stands along side other Simply Saucer's Cyborgs revisited and Les Rallizes Dénudés Mizutani as three of the defining "rock" of the mid 70s. Highly recommended to connoisseurs of second wave psychedelia.

A record beyond genres. Well loved in experimental music circles, it is maybe still unheard by many psych heads. One of the most LSD soaked records I know, also one of the most deranged ones, but still amazingly enjoyable. Helios Creed's psyched out guitar playing combined with the weirdness around it invent a world of its own like a bunch of guys living in a parallel world in a city backyard, producing homemade acid and recording their visions. A really strange trip with one of the most fitting titles and covers ever preparing for the music within, not to be taken lightly.
