  • blue phantom distortions

    Picked up this amazing 1972 UK exploito psych LP (on kaleidoscope label, which seems to be an imprint of 'turnover' budget label, based in Middlesex?) at the bootsale yesterday morning - anyone know who was behind it? The tracks are credited to one H Tical which I suppose hints it's licensed from Italy or France (Tical sounds French or Italian to me, anyway) but beyond that the only credit is for the goofy sleeve (a yellow landscape in which an eye zaps a baby, bits of aeroplane and greek columns lie about and some dinosaurs frolic in a badly drawn style...suppose it all seemed very significant at the time). Can't stop playing 'Diodo' this morning, anyway...

            haven't a clue but I have noticed that the chap speaks the Queen's English perfectly when he wants to trade stuff in the relevant section. I'm gonna have a go at using the 'ignore' tool as I can't be arsed to try and make sense of it all

              Great score Wayne, I've been after this LP in any of it's forms for a few years now. No doubt you picked it up for pence too! It can be quite a pricey one. I'm both jealous & pleased for you

                Mate, I've got Scots family and I'm struggling! Lee should be able to translate some of it, but I think it lapses from Gaelic to gibberish!

                I find it freaky when folk refer to themselves in the third person, Maradona does it and he's not someone I'd model myself on. Although if you compare our physiques, you might wonder if I already had modelled myself on him. Quite successfully. (Not my fault, went to Cadbury World with my young lady and her daughter the other day and you can't turn down e.g. 10 Twirls for £1 can you?)

                Well done Wayne on the find though. Top bit of digging there!! I remember when I found Ugly Custard (also on Kaleidoscope) in Save The Children for 50p a few years back and only picked it up cos it had a curious-looking sleeve and then turned it over to see the musicians involved and took a punt on it. And was well-rewarded. Still right up there in my best ever charity shop finds.

                  It was indeed released on vedette first. There is also a 7" on vedette.

                  Vedette ARE a library label of sorts. Releasing other library and many other things (phase 6 and so on).

                  It was ALSO released under the name of 'distortions pop' on sonimage (which I have).

                  And wallace no matter how helpful you are your going to get banned for a bit unless you learn how to post respectably. I don't know if your taking the mickey or what. Really getting on my already-fragile-monday-nerves.

                      ugly custard is nearly the same as the hungry wolf lp under a different name.

                        I don't have too much trouble understanding Wallace, actually - I put it down to my Scottish ancestry and exposure to The Broons in my formative years!

                        The name H Tical really rings a bell somewhere, and I can't think why.....I'll have to do some research.

                            Were Hungry Wolf the ones with Alan Hawkshaw in under the name of Jeremy Eagles, or was that Rumplestiltskin? I think the two bands had roughly the same personnel anyway (Hawk, Flowers, Parker, Cattini).

                              That was Rumplestiltskin, and probably down to contractual reasons, with it being a US release on Bell. And the Rumplestiltskin LP has tracks from... ? 'Music For A Young Generation', I *think*? (Lee recorded them for me yonks ago but I've forgotten now ).
