Biography

Part of the 80’s wave of UK Neo Psych and Garage Punk, The Morticians made one of the best lost UK psych-punk albums of that era. It’s a combination of ’60s styled garage punk and West Coast/Pink Fairies like acid guitar rock. Heavy distorted fuzzed out guitar solos, swirling keyboards and a really stoned atmosphere pervade this little gem that’s long gone on vinyl. Includes uniquely heavy versions of “Action Woman” & “Song Of A Baker”, “Blackout Of Gretely” and a totally over the top lysergic version of the Country Joe & The Fish classic “Section 43”. Dave Goodman’s production is raw , drenched in reverb and somehow (only God knows) he managed to hold this monstrous creation together.
