After lingering most of the week in Mozambique, we are heading vaguely homewards, stopping off first in Greece, where they are celebrating the Orthodox Easter. Here is some excellent garage/psych revival courtesy of Purple Overdose and their great 1988 album, "Exit #4".
"Elevation" - Purple Overdose
"Yellow Mole" - Purple Overdose
As a Bank Holiday bonus, here is some more garage/psych purplosity - but from the first time round.
"Voices Green And Purple" - The Bees
"The Purple Cadger" - Robin Scott
"Pink, Purple, Yellow, Red" - The Sorrows
"Granny Takes A Trip" - The Purple Gang
And you can't really have a purple post without His Purpleness, can you? But we're not going for the obvious one.

Wow - that takes me back. I remember "Granny Takes A Trip" from a Transatlantic sampler which had a whole bunch of acoustic stuff with the Purple Gang tune seemingly tagged on as an afterthought.ReplyDelete
Don't recall that particular Sorrows track, but I remember their slightly dark single "Take A Heart" from the mid-60's - a great pop song.
Get on with you, Lynchie, you're too young to remember the mid-80s, let alone the mid-60sReplyDelete
