The third part of our THEM trilogy finds the California bound edition of THEM, having explored softpop, psych, full-on garage punk and even their Maritime Club roots on NOW AND THEM (CRREV29), plunging full on into the Psychedelic maelstrom they helped create.
Being on the same label as The Chocolate Watchband was just a red rag to these Belfast boys!.... Like The Shadows Of Knight, these upstarts will have to learn who are the real Daddies!..... THEM!.....produced once more by Texas rockabilly maverick Ray Ruff, this is the sound of THEM through the bizarro filter of California Acid tests..from a psychpunk historical perspective, Van Morrison made a BIG mistake leaving...though his buddy Kenny McDowell does the job just fine
With a bonus of as many non-LP singles as we can cram on, this is THE essential lost artifact of Irish Psychedelia....just the sleeve is worth the price of admission!!
Classic psychedelia first time on CD anywhere, plus bonus non-LP singles in the original MONO! Plus the usual full-monty Rev-Ola remastering extravaganza...it never sounded so good! Including Extensive linernotes by Jon 'Mojo' Mills of the celebrated "Shindig!" magazine, fearturing input from band members.... Essential for all fans of quality Psychedelia, Garagepunk and 1960's psychpop...also all THEM and Van Morrison collectors, and the entire population of Belfast!...see what it was all about!
