Psychic Circle have just released “Fairytales Can Come True Volume 5: Steppin’ Through An Empty Time (20 Slices Of British & European Pop Psych Confection Compiled By The Bevis Frond)” on cd. Some tracks are an acquired taste, and these two are quite over the top.

In the “Wicker man” post below (use the tags to find it), I wrote how, at the end of the eighties, us volatile postmod popsike freaks thought the Wicker Mansoundtrack was by Trees. “Must be. Who else could it be by!” Turned out to be (Paul Giovanni’s) Magnet – totally obscure. Anyhow, in those days, we were also quite nuts (and berries) about this killer track (as collectors and other salesmen like to say): “She looked down” (1988) is off the Fern Hill lp by Mick Wills, and can also be found on the Woronzoidv/a 2lp label sampler, both on Woronzow (1988). Electric guitar extraordinaire by Nick Saloman, of the Bevis Frond / Psychic Circle fame. The image above is the Hipgnosis sleeve to Trees’ On The Shorelp (CBS UK lp 1970, Decal / Charly reissue lp 1987, BGO cd 199X, Sony BMG deluxe 2cd 2007, Sunbeam 2lp 200X) – one of my favourite (psychedelic) folk albums of all time.
