Alice In Wonderland & Other Rainy Day Girls.The Great Lost Southern Popsike Trip

Tennessee might not be the first place on the map which springs to mind when embarking on a magical mystery tour of the 1960s psychedelic scene, much less Nashville, with its long-established folk and country traditions. And yet, as this trip into the obscure backwaters of Southern popsike, blues-infused garage and bubblegum soul reveals, Music City wasn't all Nudie suits and steel guitars, no siree.

By delving into the further recesses of the Sun and SSS Int'l catalogues and casting its net as far south as Florida, this carefully compiled 2CD uncovers forgotten forays into the realms of fuzz-laden garage rock, lilting Baroque pop and saccharine psychedelia along with those whose wig-out weirdness defies easy categorisation.

Dig stinging sitars and Farfisa-fuelled fun? Then hop aboard!

Drawn from the Sun, SSS International, Amazon, Minaret, Honor Brigade labels and featuring sought-after cuts by The Rugbys, Strange Bedfellows, The Germs, H.Y. Sledge, The Tiffany System, Lord August, The Geers and The Berkeley Kites, this is a must-do musical excursion along the highways and byways of The Great Lost Southern Popsike Trip.
