9/3/2015 TKS Presents: ‘Stranger Brews – A Saucerful of Brit-Psych’ tracklist

Around two hundred editions of The Kitchen Sink and none have included so many well-known bands, which is not to say that the sixty minutes spent drinking in a mix of some of the finest British psychedelic sounds was full of tracks you’d hear on commercial radio – two or three perhaps, but no more! Featuring the whimsical, the spacey, the propulsive, the backward(!) and a solid gathering (for want of a better collective noun) of fabulous guitarists, here’s the list:

1)The Who – Armenia City In The Sky /from ‘The Who Sell Out’/1967, Polydor Ltd 2009
2)The Yardbirds – Happenings Ten Years Time Ago /from ‘Roger The Engineer’/1966, Edsel Records 1983

That feedback sculpture from Sonic Boom, recorded in the spring of 1987, brought a fairly diverse trip through the wonderful world of British psychedelic music to a close.  I’m sure it won’t be too long before more such sounds feature on another show. Wish anyone perusing this many a sonic delight! S.
