Artist: BOLD CHICKEN
Title: s/t
Format: 7"
Label: Lysergic Sound Distributors
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"For the first time anywhere on vinyl, Lysergic Sounds Distributors proudly presents Bold Chicken. Formed in 1970 in Akron, Ohio by future Rubber City Rebels leader, Buzz Clic, the band began gigging around north east Ohio playing the standard cover band repertoire, but snuck their own crude original tunes amongst the usual top 40 fodder, which must have truly bummed out the rust belt bar denizens looking for a good time, swaying and singing along to Smoke on the Water. Bold Chicken went into the studios in 1972 and recorded an ultra-crude demo of four depraved songs which LSD presents on this 7" disc that deals exclusively with the seedier side of fornication, including the misunderstood homosexual in A Fellows Lament, the teenage sexual frustration of not sealing the deal in Gears and Tears, an amorous ode to a lady of the night in Streekwalkin Queen, and ending the set up with a song about contracting VD (natch!) titled Oh Doctor Please. The tunes have a sound that Todd Killings of Victim of Time described as a top-notch find in the vastly unpopular world of Midwest bad glam-punk in a pre-Ramones America. Not as art-bent as Debris and not as straightjacket-worthy as the nearby Electric Eels, this is more a quality studio recording of a "far-out" drunken quaalude party, (complete with obviously fake, limp-wristed backup vocals) that you werent supposed to know about. It can definitely stand on its own with anyone else hitting their stride in 72, as its heavy, but not metal, crazed, but not psychedelic, punk but not prog, and even dumber than the Stooges. This is a limited fully licensed hand numbered edition of 350 directly mastered from the original tapes." - Lysergic Sound Distributors.

Artist: DEVILS KITCHEN
Title: Devils Kitchen
Format: LP
Label: Lysergic Sound Distributors
Country: USA
Price: $24.00
"The first ever release by Devils Kitchen, perhaps the best of the greatly talented but forgotten bands from the legendary San Francisco psychedelic scene of the late 1960s. Devils Kitchen played all the major venues in the Bay Area and Los Angeles during this time period, opening for and playing frequently with many very well-known bands, including The Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, Santana, Quicksilver Messenger Service, The Allman Brothers, Big Brother And The Holding Company with Janis, The Charlatans and many, many others. The band spurned a recording contract offer from Mercury Records in 1968, displeased with the lack of creative control offered them by the label. Consequently, they never released any recordings. There are eight original unreleased tracks on this album and all were taken from the original master tapes that were recorded in 1969 at the Family Dog Ballroom On The Great Highway in San Francisco and the Sierra Sound Recording Studio in Berkeley. The music has a great and unmistakable late 60s acid-drenched West Coast guitar-driven blues-psych sound with snaky electric slide and roaring fuzz guitar throughout. The discovery of these master tapes and this subsequent release of Devils Kitchens first full length album, more than forty years after the recordings were made, is an exciting find for the collectors of obscure 60s psychedelia. How a great band like this remained under the radar and unreleased for all these years is mystifying. Limited pressing of 1000 hand-numbered copies. Includes a reproduction of Family Dog handbill from March, 1970, featuring Big Brother & The Holding Company, Kaleidoscope and Devils Kitchen. Welcome again to the great San Francisco sound of the late 1960s." - Lysergic Sound Distributors.

Artist: GERBILS, THE
Title: Dead Detroit: Lost 1982 Recordings
Format: LP
Label: Lysergic Sound Distributors
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"The Gerbils were a high school hardcore punk band (with Moog!), from Farmington Hills/Detroit, Michigan in the early 1980s. Relative unknowns on the national stage during their short existence, they gigged regularly at the regional level, sharing noteworthy bills at Bookies and The Freezer Theater with the likes of Social Distortion, Whipping Boy and DCs Youth Brigade. The band recorded this collection of tunes back in the summer of 1982, but despite their impressive by-way-of 2016 pedigree (various members went on to play in The Necros, Negative Approach, Shock Therapy, Laughing Hyenas, DaDa, Glass Heroes, Busted Hearts, and The Afflicted), the master tapes were lost and the songs remained unreleased. The discovery and rescue of those master tapes in 2015 at the hands of Lysergic Sound Distributors changed the equation. This record not only showcases the bands obvious skills but also pays tribute to the aggressive DIY aesthetics of the early 1980s U.S. hardcore/punk scene and recognizes The Gerbils place in the Detroit and Midwest hardcore scene. Seventeen warp speed songs with classic doom and gloom Reagan-era song titles like: What Dont I Hate?, Now I Want To Die, Kill Everyone and I Dont Like Cops. This record is like a super-concentrated met hit of punk rock negativity and nihilism. Here come the Gerbils.... and they despise everyone." - KCP.

Artist: GRAVEYARD FIVE
Title: The Graveyard Theme/Marble Orchard
Format: 7"
Label: Lysergic Sound Distributors
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"The first ever reissue of the legendary Graveyard Five single: The Graveyard Theme b/w The Marble Orchard (Stanco SR-102), one of the true “holy grails” of garage rock. This is truly one of the rarest 45s in the world, with only  a handful of original copies known to exist; no surprise then that they sell for more than $4,500! The Graveyard Theme, an exercise in fuzz guitar excess, was apparently inspired by a Ouija board session. The B side is the fuzz soaked reverb-laden monster, The Marble Orchard, which tells the true tale of the creepy, wet October night the band spent in the cemetery; they were convinced they saw something move from behind a tombstone and then heard “a wolfpack howl”. If the circumstances and subject matter of these songs isnt creepy enough, the recording studio where these songs were recorded was supposedly haunted by a spectre that provided guest background vocals in the form of a growling noise thats clearly audible near the end of The Marble Orchard. •A true masterpiece of 60s U.S. garage rock finally re-issued after more than 45 years." - Stanco.

Artist: GREYLOCK MANSION
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Lysergic Sound Distributors
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Lysergic Sound Distributors has unearthed another buried treasure of pure underground psychedelia: GREYLOCK MANSION, who emerged loudly from Tucson, Arizona in 1968. The bands sound (as heard on the opening track of LSDs best-selling "St. Alberts Dream" compilation) is powerful, deep underground psych with thick, dominant funereal organ and distorted fuzz guitar and effects, backed by heavy precise drumming. The Doors and Iron Butterfly influences are evident, and a touch of early Black Sabbaths slow grinding sludge rears its head  at times. For all the desired heaviness, which is plentiful, the lyrics might be even more impressive—dark, meaningful, thoughtful, masterfully constructed and thought provoking, with mystical, sci-fi and otherworldly themes like time travel, death, and other wicked inventiveness. It would be difficult to believe that Greylock Mansions lyrics and music were written by a 19-year old, until you realize that the teen in question was Merl Reagle, soon to be a master wordsmith, raconteur—oh, and the most famous crossword puzzle author in the U.S. Reagle was syndicated in the largest newspapers in the country, made numerous television and movie appearances, and was even portrayed on the enormously popular TV show, The Simpsons. Roaring heavy fuzz guitar, doomy organ and spiritually mysterious psychedelia—a robust and compelling mix of original songs that meld science fiction, horror movie themes and Reagles lyrics. Greylock Mansions musicianship, heavy yet melodic tunes, and songwriting are superior to many of the “big name” bands of the time; they can finally and deservedly be heard and appreciated by fans of the heavy ultra-obscure underground psychedelic gems of the era. Included are three inserts—a 4 page folder with pictures and text; a psychedelic poster w/lyrics; and a color reproduction of a poster from Unifest 1970 in New Mexico. Nine original songs, all of restored and remastered from the original 1969 studio reels. Three of the tracks were released on private label 45 micro-pressings in 1970 and 1971; the other six cuts are released for the first time! •A true masterpiece of 60s U.S. underground psychedelic rock, finally re-issued." - Lysergic Sound Distributors.

Artist: V/A
Title: St. Alberts Dream
Format: LP
Label: Lysergic Sound Distributors
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"A brand new, limited edition, vinyl-only, hand-numbered pressing of 800 copies. One of the heaviest fuzz psych garage comps ever pressed; psychedelic with an acid inspired sound throughout. Theres 11 extra heavy cuts originally recorded from 1968 to 1972 by 11 different, very obscure bands from all over the U.S. All the tracks are authorized, restored, and re-mastered from various sources, including unreleased master tapes and newly discovered acetates. None of these tracks have been compiled on vinyl anywhere else. These unknown bands include Oracle, Wheatridge, the funereal organ and sludge guitar of Greylock Mansion, Frozen Sun (who perform a seven minute Hendrix space fuzz anthem), and seven more similar unknown bands that leave you with a record full of acid-drenched trippy lyrics, swirling organ, spacey effects and heavy guitar. Plenty of fuzz and thumpin wah-wah. The wildly colorful cryptic psychedelic cover is a brother to Creams Disreali Gears, or maybe Golden Dawns Power Plant; obviously over-the-top!" - LSD.

Artist: WORLD
Title: Opus 1
Format: LP
Label: Lysergic Sound Distributors
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Recently discovered 1972 Latin teen soul-funk-rock private press mega-rarity from rural New Mexico. Pressed in very small numbers, this previously unknown gem is a very accomplished mix of smooth gliding soul and up-tempo funk, complete with swirling Hammond organ and mellow harmonies to go with the fuzz and funk guitars. At the albums core, however, beats the heart of an adolescent small town garage rock combo. This six piece teen group, led by Rick Chavez and the smooth vocals of Ray Williams, features nine very catchy original tunes to go along with their very own funky version of the classic, Bo Diddley. The great music on this authorized reissue has all been restored and re-mastered and is now offered as a very limited vinyl pressing for the first time. We have also restored the original hand-drawn outsider psychedelic cover art. With less than a handful of original copies known to exist at this time, this is a great new find and an absolute must have for the collector of rare soul-funk-garage vinyl." - Lysergic Sound Distributors.
