Everythings Groovy - Gaye Bykers On Acid

Everythings Groovy
Fronted by the flamboyant Mary Mary the band quickly became key players in the so-called 'grebo' scene which mixed traditional rock structures with psychedelia and dance. The Bykers received strong music press support for their first two singles on the In Tape label, 'Everything's Groovy' and 'Nosedive Karma.' Both were big independent chart hits staying in the charts for a combined total of 53 weeks. The main interest in both records was their driving hip-hop beat married to psychedelic guitars and rockist lyrics which was unheard of in the world of indie records at the time. The Bykers eventually disintegrated into increasing chaos as their career went on but they left an important legacy which is now on CD for the first time. This 16 track CD contains all the tracks from the first two singles plus additional tracks that have been hidden in the vaults for the past few years. Also included is a promotional video of "Everythings Groovy" as a bonus enhanced track.

Desert Orchid 2CD
With band members called Porkbeast (bass), Fast Transatlantic Dick and Reverb (guitars), Vom (drums) and plain ol’ Anderson (vocals), Crazyhead were never going to be a band one could easily ignore. Formed in Leicester in 1986, they emerged through the contrived UK Grebo scene – a music press catch-all term for a loose collection of bands generating 60s garage & alternative rock, electronica, hip hop and pop – of the late 80s and early 90s.
Singed to Food Records who in-turn operated under the umbrella of EMI, Crazyhead gained instant indie chart success with their debut and follow-up singles, ‘What Gives You The Idea That You’re So Amazing Baby?’ and ‘Baby Turpentine’ which reached number 2 and 4 respectively. Their debut album ‘Desert Orchid’ was so named following a successful flutter by the band from a day at the races when the steeplechase legend of the same name was first past the post at one of his many meetings.
Crazyhead’s outwardly lackadaisical image belied the aptitude and vigour of the album’s song writing. Tracks such as, ‘Time Has Taken Its Toll On You’ and ‘Rags’ (both also released as singles), along with ‘Buy A Gun’ and ‘I Don’t Want That Kind Of Love’ display an innate ability to instantly latch onto ones cerebral cortex and forever remain. Their cover of Richard Berry’s, ‘Have Love Will Travel’ is arguably one of the definitive versions of this 50s hit, a version of which can be heard in the current LV= car insurance TV ad. campaign.
This long overdue Re-mastered Collector’s edition of the album gathers all the single b-sides, alternative mixes and live performances from the era onto a second disc, plus a cover of label mates Diesel Park West’s, ‘Like Princes Do’, which appeared on the Food Records Christmas EP in 1989.
Fully Re-mastered & Expanded Collector’s Edition of Crazyhead’s debut album.
Includes 15 bonus tracks of single b-sides, alternative mixes and live recordings.
16 page booklet with story of the album sleeve-note and rare photos and images from the period.
