Germany's leading psychedelic rock band are back on Fruits de Mer, with three new mixes of great covers, all mixes appearing on vinyl for the first time:
Colour Your Mind (originaly by Tyrnaround)
La Poupee Qui Fait Non (Michel Polnareff)
Optical Sounds (Human Expression)
Vibravoid need no introduction to long-serving Fruits de Mer fans - responsible for some of the finest and rarest of the singles released on the label back in 2008-2010, the band now have their own record label (Stoned Karma) and a brilliant reputation for their live shows, which are seriously psychedelic experiences (just check out the youtube videos).
So it's a bit of a coup that they're back on Fruits de Mer with a three-track 7" EP that features three great covers, previously only available on CD, and all remixed exclusively for this release.
Add in colour vinyl and a gatefold sleeve designed by frontman Christian Koch, and you've just got to get a copy
Colour Your Mind (originally by Tyrnaround)
Formed in 1985 in Melbourne, Australia, Tyrnaround were a great band who specialised in 60s psych pop/rock, influenced by the likes of Syd Barrett,The Seeds, The Beatles circa 67/68 and psychedelia in general. They released a handful of cassettes, EPs and one album before disbanding following the death of their lead singer, Michael Philips.
La Poupee Qui Fait Non (by Michel Polnareff)
'La Poupée Qui Fait Non' (English: 'The Doll That Says No') is a 1966 song written by Franck Gérald (lyrics) and French singer/songwriter Michel Polnareff (music). It was recorded by Polnareff, becoming an immediate success in France and one of Polnareff's definitive songs. Apparently, Jimmy Page played guitar on the original recording
Optical Sound (by Human Expression)
The Human Expression were Los Angeles based and issued just three 45's during their short lifetime (1966-1967.) It's claimed they acted as support group to Love, The Doors and most probably The Seeds. Their second single was an ethereal psychedelic rock track called 'Optical Sound', where the singer was collecting his thoughts after a bad LSD experience.
