V/A - Brown Acid - The Fifth Trip
The hits just keep coming -- for this fifth lysergic journey, Riding Easy assembles ten heavy slabs of obscure rock the likes of which have never been seen before... not in this form, anyhow. And as usual, the tracks from these impossibly rare records have all been fully cleared through the artists themselves. Great lengths were gone to in order to get the best possible master sources, the worst case scenario being an original 45. The legendary Captain Foam kicks off this trip like an anvil to your skull with a rollicking stomper sounding like The Who with Matt Pikes thunderous guitar tone. No Reason wasnt easy to find, but lo and behold, the super sleuths located him and got his blessing to include the A-side of his sole single. Good luck finding an original copy of the record. Its rarer than raw beef -- and thats just the tip of the iceberg. The other nine tracks continue the onslaught in typical Brown Acid form: George Brigmans charmingly disjointed bedroom-fi production of Blowin Smoke, Finchs way out of time and place grungeadelic anthem Nothing In The Sun, Cybernauts heavy prog, Fargos hallucinogenic BBQ-sauce soaked Abaddon, Mammoths fittingly beefy eponymous riff-monger, Flashers Icky Bicky boogie, Ohio-based screamers Lance, Zebras gritty rendition of Helter Skelter and finally, the mysterious and previously unheard Thor appears here exclusively and for the first time ever with their unknown 45 track Lick It. - Ridingeasy.
