West Coast Consortium's late 1960s singles were sophisticated, lavishly-orchestrated close harmony pop affairs. Underneath the strings and things, though, they were at heart a garage psychedelic pop band - as can be heard on Mr. Umbrella Man, which assembles the pick of the four demo albums that they made between 1967 and 1969. Now gathered together for the first time, this astonishing cache of recordings reveals that, left to their own devices, West Coast Consortium experimented wth Mellotrons, fuzz guitars, Vox Continental organs, wah-wah pedals and myriad studio effects, while hitherto unreleased nuggets like 'Santa Monica Bay', 'Aimie (Sing Your Song For Me)' and 'Mr. Umbrella Man' show a parallel debt to the lo-fi, DIY approach of the Beach Boys circa Smiley Smile and Friends."
