The Psychedelic Snarl - compilation lp

I'm a bit of a newcomer to freakbeat and psychedlia but I've just made a new section in my record collection for it - seems to be the most noticably growing part at the moment. This nice little comp set me back about a tenner which isn't bad going considering some of the original 7's on here would cost 300 quid each! Worth admission alone for Wimple Winch's 'Save my Soul' which is absolutely nuts from the frentic geetaring to the death cry about haly way through.

Apologies for the absense - the World Cup has me in its grips... Records lose for four weeks or so.

Khonnor - Burning Palace 7"

A tasty 7" from the great white hope of electronica, Khonnor. Did I mention teenage prodigy? Actually he's probably not in his teens anymore but he's still fucking astonishgly good. The 'Handwriting' lp was a lush mix of noodling electronics, guitars and feedback. This is more of the same - only problem with it is it's way too short...

Willy Mason - Oxygen 7"

Delightful singer/songwriter action from Willy Mason. Fucked if I know who he is but this fragile gem was on one of Kong's ace 'Dumb Waiter' mixes and gradually wormed it's way into my life. Very nice but steer clear of the album version which lacks the fragility (is that word?) apparently...

More about Kong some other time.
