    I feel like we should all be jamming out to “Right Now” (and drinking Crystal Pepsi?), because this is the day we’ve all been waiting for. It’s time to stop living in the past and start living in the moment: my annual list of the one-hundred best albums of 2010 is finally ready for you to feast your eyes on it. Look at it. […]

    Thank you, Veritgo Swirl website, for the following information: “Boy, this is scary! Much more so than any hard-rock flirting with the adversary. It all starts innocently enough, but soon diverts into half-lit and spooky side-streets. Strange threatening dissonants [sic] abound, suddenly it’s cool jazz-rock that finds no end. The suite on side B is even more creepy. You may think Meek is […]

    This is it, folks. This is one of the Vertigo swirl records I’ve been looking for since I first laid eyes on it back in the early days of 2008. At the time it was being sold for $250 (and it was about as close to mint condition as you’re going to find when it comes to a German 1970 Vertigo swirl). Since […]

    Vertigo Swirl alert! If you’re anything like me — and God help you if you’re not — you have the Vertigo Swirl website bookmarked, and you are constantly scouring record bins for more “swirlies” to add to your record collection. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, that’s probably a good thing. It’s pretty pathetic when you get to the point where […]

    “Widely cited as one of the most important private press releases in all 1970s psychedelia, D.R. Hooker’s The Truth might actually be one of those obscure lost gems that’s worth the customarily inordinate amount of interest such period pieces are afforded. “D.R. Hooker was a man slightly askew with his time: from the robes he wears on the cover to the quasi mystical […]

    Donated lovingly by former Swan Fungus benefactor “Viagra Falls,” who has disappeared in recent months because he got angry at me when his user name was picked up by my SPAM filter every time he tried to leave a comment on a blog post. I’ve tried to make amends in the hopes that he would contribute more to the Treasures From The Collector’s […]

    Image courtesy of Lefse Records In a short blurb for yesterday’s mix tape I made fun of Ian for how horribly he described a band. I need to make a point of saying that Ian has been consistently awesome in recommending me music over the tenure of our friendship. He’s got pretty good taste! One of his most recent successes was turning me onto […]

    Image courtesy of Prog Archives From Aquarius Records: “For those of you into acid folk from the early 70’s, we have another terrific find with FRESH MAGGOTS. This teenage British duo’s only record, not surprisingly deemed a failure upon its release with such an unappealing name (though of course we think it’s cool), came out in 1971. Which, as you may know, some here […]

    With all of the amazing underground psychedelic/space rock bands to emerge in the last five years, a proper Hawkwind tribute album is about as overdue as a mainstream “indie” ban on Ivy League educated fag-pop albums. Hey, look at that, I think I just coined a new genre! Call me Simon Reynolds because I’m going to overuse the shit out of that phrase […]

    Julian Cope wrote… “Blues Creation was formed by guitarists Kazuo Takeda, Koh Eiryu and singer Fumio Nunoya, in early 1969, after the dissolution of their Group Sounds outfit The Bickies. Highly influenced by Cream and The Yardbirds, Takeda joined forces with school friends Takayuki Noji, Shinichi Tashiro, and lead singer Fumio Nunoya. Formerly vocalist with Taboo, a heavy band led by future Happy […]
