The two tracks on the 10" were recorded in May 1969 under the supervision of Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason whilst the CD features a twin psychedelic mouth harp jam that was part of Screw's set. With nods towards Captain Beefheart, the Misunderstood and Free, the band featured Chris Turner (harmonica), Al Kinnear (guitar), Nick Brotherwood (drums), Stan Scrivener (bass) and Pete Hossell (vocals), and they played many gigs at the time including the Roundhouse, Eel Pie Island and the London Guildhall. A genuine lost band offering two killer, dirty acid blues tracks that will appeal to fans of late 60s UK freak rock ! Only 500 limited copies made with a detailed historical insert by Nigel Cross - who saw the band in the late 60s and also unearthed this piece of rock history!
