About The Horror Asparagus Stories
THIS MONTH THE HORROR ASPARAGUS STORIES PRESENT 'A VERY ENGLISH SUMMER', A FINE SELECTION OF VERY BRITISH PSYCHEDELIC ODDITIES. TURN OFF YOU MIND, RELAX AND FLOAT DOWN STREAM AND ENJOY FOUR OF OUR FAVOURITE SUMMER SOUNDS.

1968 SAW THE RELEASE OF A VERY CURIOUS SINGLE BY LITTLE KNOWN GROUP 'BOEING DUVEEN AND THE BEAUTIFUL SOUP'. THE SINGLE 'JABERWOCK' B/W 'WHICH DREAMED IT' PUT LEWIS CARROLLS POEMS 'JABBERWOCKY' AND 'A BOAT BENEATH A SUNNY SKY' TO SONG TO GREAT PSYCHEDELIC EFFECT. THE B SIDE 'WHICH DREAMED IT' FEATURES SOME GREAT EASTERN INSPIRED TABLA AND SITAR WORK PROVIDING THE PERFECT BACKING FOR THE LAID BACK VOCAL. CURIOUSER AND CURIOUSER STILL IS THE STORY OF THE BANDS ORIGIN. SAM HUTT THE GROUPS FRONT MAN WAS KNOWN IN HIP CIRCLES AS A 'ROCK AND ROLL DOCTOR' WHO ADMINISTRATED TO ROCK MUSICIANS AND PRACTICED HOMEOPATHIC AND HOLISTIC MEDICINE. I WONDER IF HE WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE APPLES SECOND SINGLE 'DOCTOR ROCK'!

JULY RELEASED TWO SINGLES AND ONE MIND BLOWING LP IN 1968 FOR THE SMALL UK LABEL MAJOR MINOR, THEIR SECOND SINGLE, DANDELION SEEDS IS POSSIBLY ONE OF THE FINEST EXAMPLES OF BRITISH PSYCHEDELIA AND DEFINITELY RANKS AS ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVOURITE SINGLES. THE VERY BRITISH GROUP WHO RETURNED TO THE UK IN 1967 AFTER A TWO YEAR STINT RECORDING AS 'THE TOM CATS' IN SPAIN (WITH LITTLE COMMERCIAL SUCCESS BUT A GREAT COVER OF THE STONES 'PAINT IT BLACK') ENTERED THE STUDIO WITH THE INTENSION OF RECORDING SOMETHING UNLIKE THAT WHICH HAD EVER BEEN HEARD BEFORE. THEIR SELF TITLED LP SEES THEM EXPLORE EASTERN TINGED PSYCHEDELIA AND FEATURES SOME FINE ACID GUITAR WORK. THE LP IS ESSENTIAL LISTENING AND FOR ME IS ONE OF THE BEST OF THE GENRE.

JOHNS CHILDREN WERE ONE OF THE RAWEST UK GROUPS OF THE MID SIXTIES, IN FACT THEY WERE RENOWNED FOR THEIR WILD STAGE SHOWS WHICH SAW THEM THROWING FLOUR AT THE AUDIENCE AND THROWING THEMSELVES AROUND THE STAGE, THEY ARE ALSO NOW FAMOUS FOR INCLUDING YOUNG GUITARIST AND SONG WRITER MARC BOLAN WHO CAN BE HEARD WARBLING IN THE BACKGROUND TOWARDS THE END OF THIS TRACK. 'MIDSUMMER'S NIGHT SCENE' IS ONE OF THE RAREST UK SINGLES, ONLY 25-50 TEST PRESSINGS EXIST. ORIGINAL COPIES OF THE SINGLES ARE SELDOM OFFERED FOR SALE AND FETCH THOUSANDS OF POUNDS. NEEDLESS TO SAY I DON'T OWN ONE YET! THE BAND ONLY WORE WHITE AND RECORDED SIX GREAT SINGLES BETWEEN 1966 AND 1967.

TURQUOISE HAILED FORM MUSWELL HILL IN NORTH LONDON, FAMOUSLY HOME OF THE KINKS. LIKE THE KINKS THEY WERE MASTERS OF A VERY ENGLISH POP SOUND. UNFORTUNATELY UNLIKE THEIR FRIENDS TURQUOISE NEVER GAINED ANY REAL COMMERCIAL SUCCESS AND ONLY RELEASED TWO AMAZING SINGLES FOR THE DECCA LABEL IN 1968. '53 SUMMER STREET' WAS THEIR FIRST AND IS TYPICAL OF THEIR MELANCHOLIC POP SOUND AND FEATURES SOME GREAT WHIMSICAL LYRICS PROVIDED BY JEFF PETERS. YOU CAN FIND MORE OF THEIR RECORDINGS ON A RECENT CD RELEASE, 'THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF FLOSSIE FILLET'.
