BACKGROUND + MEER INFORMATIE
THE TROLLS / TROLL
“Part of the whole Chicago late-60s psych scene alongside their similarly well-produced Dunwich stablemates H.P. Lovecraft, The Troll released a few near-hit singles before this album. Originally released on Mercury’s Smash sublabel, this got not a whole lot of attention in its day…and that’s sad, because there was a goodly bit of psychedelia that probably shouldn’t have made it to the surface before this. It’s quality, although one definitely can tell it’s a ‘period piece’. Still, if it’s a fine 60s flashback you need, just drop this one on…
…and you’re greeted with fine fuzz and tick-tocking percussion from the start of side one, with “Satin City News”. Now, it should be noted that the lyrics here tend toward a political and cynical bent…which is about par for much of the album. In amongst the psychedelia, there’s a certain darkness on “Animated Music”, although nothing that would tend to bum one out.
That same acerbic political tack continues on “Mr. Abernathy”, with its classic trem-guitar and poppy horns. While the tale on this track is certainly one of American political scandal, etc, the sound…in fact, the sound throughout the album…is very British. It’s not the sound you’d associate with Chicago at all, really…but something more Abbey Road-ish, with tinges of early Floyd here, a dash of Moodies there, and lots of tape spooling around ala Sir George Martin’s production methods circa ‘Sgt. Pepper’”. Quoted from / All Rights Reserved: by Lugia, rockasteria.blogspot.com
THE TEA COMPANY
“From New York City, The Tea Company was one of the early birds on the US psychedelic underground scene with an LP on the market originally released on Smash Records in 1968. This album stands for the evolution of the 45 rpm psych-garage bands to the upcoming LP-generation with extended improvisation parts. Tea Company evolved from the Naturals which were founded in 1963 and played the big ballrooms supporting Mamas and the Papas, The Lovin´ Spoonful, Bob Dylan, Ritchie Havens and many others. The band describes themselves as “an assemblage of possessed rock performers, retinue preparing the unusual, alternating with the roots of soul whose purpose is to cause sensation, due to stimulation of the auditory centers of the brain”.
They became famous in the US for spectacular live shows and lyrical hippie statements. The music is inspired by the Beatles, using exactly the same equipment as them. Tea Company played with lots of freaked-out-echo-organ/-guitar noises on a 12 string Rickenbacker and various stereo madness reminds strongly of Syd Barrett´s spirit but more driven by hard hittin´ drums. Being buddies of Vanilla Fudge and inspired by them, the Tea Company also did an outrageous 9 min. version of “You keep me hangin´ on” which is celebrated among 60s collectors as a true milestone. The album is a mind-blowing production. The CD includes also 4 bonus tracks of The Naturals).
