Riding Easy Records - Brown Acid Series (Updated)


One of the great things about music for me is discovery of older songs and albums, the lost gems, the less visible.
Brown Acid takes in HeavyPsych and Stoner Rock mostly from the 1970's and described by the Label 'Riding Easy Records' as being "Heavy Rock From the American Comedown Era".
Step inside and you get dirty riffs and tracks that offer a different side of where Heavy was during the 70s; nothing here is overblown, no 15 minute piccolo solo's that form part of a 3 hour long stadium concept record about famed monarchs on an ice skating rink.




The first trip was released in August 2015 at the time of release Riding Easy Records wrote this piece about the idea around the compilation.

Some of the best thrills of the Internet music revolution is the ability to find extremely rare music with great ease. But even with such vast archives to draw from, quite a lot of great songs have gone undiscovered for nearly half a decade, particularly in genres that lacked hifalutin arty pretense. Previously, only the most extremely dedicated and passionate record collectors had the stamina and prowess to hunt down long forgotten wonders in dusty record bins — often hoarding them in private collections, or selling at ridiculous collector’s prices. Legendary compilations like Nuggets, Pebbles, ad nauseum, have exhausted the mines of early garage rock and proto-punk, keeping alive a large cross-section of underground ephemera. However, few have delved into and expertly archived the wealth of proto-metal, pre-stoner rock tracks of Brown Acid: The First Trip. Lance Barresi, co-owner of L.A.-cum-Chicago shop Permanent Records has shown incredible persistence in tracking down a stellar collection of rare singles from the 60s and 70s for the 11-track compilation. Partnered with Daniel Hall of RidingEasy Records, the two have assembled a selection of songs that’s hard to believe have remained unheard for so long. "I essentially go through Hell and high water just to find these records,” Barresi says. “Once I find a record worthy of tracking, I begin the (sometimes) extremely arduous process of contacting the band members and encouraging them to take part. Daniel and I agree that licensing all the tracks we're using for Brown Acid is best for everyone involved.” Rather than simply bootlegging the tracks, when all of the bands and labels haven’t existed for 30-40 years or more, tracking down the creators gives all of these tunes a real second chance at success. “ All of (these songs) could've been huge given the right circumstances,” says Barresi. “But for one reason or another most of these songs fell flat and were forgotten. However, time has been kind in my opinion and I think these songs are as good now or better than they ever were."





2016 gave us the Second trip in the summer and built on its predecessors successes and offered more heavy duty RocknRoll, as already noted the process of locating these songs is long and arduous, and yet once again the calibre of music that made it on was incredibly high.
As noted with the First Trip, "it’s a solid set of unknown hits you can’t believe failed to connect back in their heyday due to various unfortunate circumstances, but now Brown Acid gives these long-lost gems their well deserved moment to shine."






We're back! And the hits just keep coming. For the fifth lysergic journey, we've assembled 10 heavy slabs of obscure rock the likes of which have never been seen before... not in this form anyhow. And as usual, the tracks from these impossibly rare records have all been fully cleared through the artists themselves. We've gone to great lengths to get the best possible master sources, the worst case scenario being an original 45. 'Cuz it ain't worth doing unless you do it right. The legendary Captain Foam kicks off this Trip like an anvil to your skull with a rollicking stomper sounding like The Who with Matt Pike's thunderous guitar tone. "No Reason" is a track we've been wanting to share with you boneheads since the start. Captain Foam (aka Richard Bertram) wasn't easy to find, but lo and behold, our super sleuths located him and got his blessing to include the A-side of his sole single here for you. Good luck finding an original copy of the record. It's rarer than raw beef. That's just the tip of the iceberg. The other nine tracks continue the onslaught in typical Brown Acid form. You may be familiar with George Brigman's psychedelic punk masterpiece "Jungle Rot", but you don't know Split until you've heard the charmingly disjointed bedroom-fi production of "Blowin' Smoke". Finch sounds way out of time (1968) and place (Milwaukee) on the grungeadelic anthem "Nothing In The Sun". Cybernaut's heavy prog - giving their Canadian cohorts Rush a run for their money - and Flasher's "Icky Bicky" boogie prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that our neighbors to the north can rock with the best of 'em. Meanwhile, Fargo's hallucinogenic BBQ sauce soaked "Abaddon" and Mammoth's fittingly beefy eponymous riff-monger continue the long line of heavies from the Lone Star State. Ohio based screamers Lance features members of Inside Experience, whom you might recall from the Third Trip. Zebra's gritty rendition of "Helter Skelter" is most likely the way Charles Manson heard the song in his head. And finally, the mysterious and previously unheard Thor appears here exclusively and for the first time ever with their unknown 45 track "Lick It". Many thanks to our pal Mike Vegh for turning us on to this one.





Fans of Rock musics many, many sub genres know there are a wealth of great compilations out there. The Nuggets Sets as mention above are key releases of the psychedelic movement and widely respected by fans and collectors alike, its hard to find a set of compilations not made by committee or released as a cash-in or tie in to a movie franchise.
What makes the Brown Acid Series so special is that these tracks are truly rare and don't appear anywhere else, they belong to a decade where music was built on excesses with releases often more pompous and overblown than the last and yet existed almost in secret. Better than that, they are sourced by a label that love and respect this stuff as can also be seen by the hard work and effort that goes in to the final product; each of the volumes so far have have releases in multiple colours and splattered vinyl, making them highly collectable.
These trips are heavy and enjoyable and as the brand new Fifth Trip proves, Riding Easy need to keep dropping more.









This time around we have 10 deep cuts from across the continental US of A and one from our neighbors up North. This Trip kicks off with an outrageous number from Gold out of San Francisco circa 1970. The band used to open their sets with this over-the-top frantic jammer which is absolutely mind-blowing and also leads one to believe that the only band that could've held a candle to Gold back in the day would've been the mighty Blue Cheer. As we delve deeper into the depths, Canadians continue to prove that they could bang heads with the best of 'em! Heat Exchange from Toronto released the rollicking ripper "Inferno" on the Yorkville label way back in 1968 and it's still thumping almost 50 years later! Missouri isn't a state that brought us a lot of heavy 45s, but there are a handful of outstanding tracks from the Show Me State, one of which is the funk-laced anthem "Give Me Time" by Backwood Memory from Kansas City. The longer we do this, the more we begin to believe that Youngstown, Ohio was the Hard Rock Mecca back in the day. Travis is yet another Youngstown group that aimed to get asses out of seats and out in the streets. "Lovin' You" is a groovy banger with a sultry riff originally released on the prolific Starshine Productions imprint. Six years prior to his Arcadian synth-funk novelty hit "Space Invaders" from 1980, Victor "Uncle Vic" Blecman took Flight into the studio with a list of relationship requirements. Amongst which are his need for "Luvin', Huggin', & More", with emphasis on the "More" part if we're to believe the urgency with which he delivers this fist-pumper. If you don't immediately recognize the Truth & Janey moniker, you need to get with it and familiarize yourself with their incredible 1976 LP No Rest For The Wicked. It's a proto-metal masterpiece that's been reissued on Rockadrome. Released four years earlier than their debut LP, "Midnight Horseman" is a 45-only track backed with a cover of "Under My Thumb". Another Iowan group, West Minist'r, self-released three 45s between 1969 and 1975. They're all great in their own way, but "My Life" hit the crunchy sweet spot in '71 with vocals sounding like a fresh from primal scream therapy John Lennon over a zonked-out Hendrix groove. You can count on hearing more from West Minist'r on future Trips. It's nearly impossible that Dayton, Ohio's Purgatory didn't seize the "Strange Days" and join "The Soft Parade" while "Waiting for the Sun". And although "Polar Expedition" wears its influences on its sleeve, 1969 would have been at least a little worse off if the band hadn't self released this single. Johnny Barnes was definitely "smokin' that reefer" and "drinkin' that wine" when he released "Steel Rail Blues" in 1976. The label states that you could order a copy of this 45 for by sending $1 to a PO Box in Boston and it's the only record on the Brown Acid series that seems to be obtainable currently for about the same amount it was sold for over three decades ago. That said, it's doubtful that it will remain so cheap for much longer. With a track as heavy as "Is There No Peace" it's easy to let the name of the label on this 45 slide. In Chicago in 1970 PSLHRTZ seemed like as good a label name as any for the guys in Zendik to release this insane recording on. Halfway through the track you might be wondering to yourself, "How was this not a hit?", and then you hear the lyrics to the last bit of the song and understand.

Wedge - Killing Tongue


When a band's debut album features a track about the singers girl being 53 years old maybe somewhat intriguing enough but when it’s a 61SG guitar this all begins to make perfect sense. Such an iconic musical instrument would immediately be held in such high regard due to its place within the music created during the halcyon days of the psychedelic rock scene in the 60’s and early 70’s.
Cut to 2018 and the SG in question has matured further in the years between the first and second album and so has the sound on Killing Tongue the new album by Munich based band Wedge. Needle down hit the grooves and straight away were in with Nuthin’ fast paced and loose all staccato muted guitar riffs that builds into an organ midsection before diving back to the excellent riff.

Album taster Lucid carries on this fast paced motif with a driving wah pedal, drum and bass led song interspersed with occasional shimmering guitar strums and organ fills, the building guitar solo carries the song to its crescendo. Somehow just as we’ve re-joined the early rock days of the 70’s the mood changes via otherworldly chimes and space echoes opening a portal back into psychedelia. Opening with pulsing keyboards, eastern guitar rhythms grow into stoner hand claps before bursting back through into a tale of living on the road on Tired Eyes which at seven minutes is pure mid 70’s California sunshine excess.

Those heady days continue with Quarter To Dawn, dreamy acoustic guitars and piano with a hint of Santana in the percussion and guitar break. High Headed Woman follows on with this sunshine album sound in a way I can only liken to that of The Sheepdogs, personally it conjures up images of cruising along the Pacific coastal highway wearing your aviators.
Returning back to the heavy retro rock sound with title track Killing Tongue were thrown into deep organ driven rock over the next three tracks, Alibi with its slow psych guitar opening riff building into a funky track with great lyrics and chorus, up there with Lucid as a stand alone single maybe. The intro and swing Who Am I reminds me of the atmosphere of early Alice Cooper band albums, this is a band bang on form with superb musicianship. What a better way to end the album than rocking out with stripped back rock n’ roll Wedge style, the last song Push Air delivers just that with cranked valve amps literally pushing air from the speakers.

This is an amazing return from Wedge, the sheer diversity of the musical styles within this album is outstanding and may fool the casual listener into thinking Wedge are a much larger group of musicians than the trio that they are, such is the sonic expanses of Killing Tongue.

Psychic Lemon - Frequency Rhythm Distortion Delay


Psychic Lemon turned a lot of heads with the release of their debut album nearly two years ago.  Initially self-released, and then issued on vinyl via Drone Rock Records, the (then) four piece from Cambridge offered a glimpse into how Psychedelic rock should sound in 2016.
Jump forward a couple of years and the band have gone from strength to strength. The debut featured heavily in the AOTY polls and they became a presence in online media, blogs and podcasts; more recently, the band have started touring more.
Towards the end of last year, PL started building up the anticipation of a follow up with the announcement that they were releasing their second album via German Label Tonzonen Records;  this would see them with Spacerock and Psychedelic Krautrock heavyweights The Spacelords, Knall and Weites Luftmeer.

'Frequency Rhythm Distortion Delay' opens with the flow of 'Exit to the Death Lane's seductive groove, along with tribal beats, introducing the track confidently. A burst of cosmic barrages of reverberating guitars and psychedelic swagger, follow and it's clear by the time track is over that the band mean business.
'Hey Droog!' follows in dirty motorik style, complete with swelling wah wah and unrelenting drum beats; the energy sonically radiates through the tracks before moving into 'You're No Good'; Tempo's flare and the track travels apace before delivering the relentless sound of amped up, space sax (thats probably a thing, right?).
Fans of the band will recognise track 4, 'Interstellar Fuzz Star' as its been around for a couple of months on Bandcamp, social media, radio shows and podcasts.  It's an intense 10 minute long psychedelic jam and served well as a taster for the album; cleverly, the track merely teased just how spectacular the finished full length would be. 'Satori Disko' is a little less frenetic and offers a slightly more mellow trip; a fitting close to the record.  Offering a more hypnotic electronic sound, it's a voyage of mesmerising sonic beauty and the best way possible to bring the LP to an end.


It comes as no surprise that FRDD is every bit as good as it is; in fact its better than anything I could've expected. Relentless, raw and true to it's titles promise. The groundwork laid by the band’s excellent debut album is realised perfectly over 5 brilliant tracks; the development of style by the now trio is a major accomplishment.
Psychic Lemon clearly have a distinctive sound and right now they stand above the shoulders of many of the established modern psych acts.  FRDD deserves the buzz and praise it's receiving; it's a record that attracted a lot of interest following its announcement, and without question a record that exceeds all possible expectations.

Once you hear album this you will know that Psychic Lemon have just delivered the first essential record of 2018; it simply is that fucking good!

At the end of 2017, Atom Heart Mutha was lucky enough to have Psychic Lemon record a special mixtape as part of the End of Year Special; Psychic Lemon chose to play tracks by bands they love as well as and some of their influences.  You can hear that mix now on the player below.
