Released in 1968, the Insect Trust’s classic 1968 debut combines rock, jazz, bluegrass, soul, Dixieland, folk, raga and blues. Despite featuring banjos, fiddles and bottleneck guitars, however, the band still sounded absolutely contemporary, with superb tunes, gorgeous vocals and some mindblowing freakout passages. Tuneful, intelligent and highly musical, they truly forged something new out of the past, making this one of the most beguilingly strange and original albums of its time.
