After the runaway success of the new-deleted collection Homage To Catatonia, this set ransacks Big Boy Pete's astonishing home studio vaults once more to present another fourteen tracks of previously unreleased, sitar-based psych madness from the legendary Norwich-based fruitcake. Retrieved from the twilight zone to reveal the colour of the artist's dreams and fantasies: strange, fractured epiphanies informed equally by the more surreal realms of science fiction and the countercultural zeitgeist, the result is a window on the curious world of Big Boy Pete, although whether we are viewing through clear glass or merely standing in a hall of distorted mirrors is anyone's guess. 1000 numbered copies on 190gm vinyl.

 

"A set of lunatic concoctions every bit as memorable as Homage To Catatonia. Miller's home-cooked crackpot psychedelia may not be for everyone, but the adventurous will not be disappointed; this is remarkably good gravy." (Ugly Things)
