NEW TWEEDY BROTHERS, The
Cat. No. : GUESS148
100% uncut psychedelia and garagey, jangly folk–rock from 1968
Originally from Portland, the New Tweedy Brothers were formed by brothers Fred and Danny Lackaff plus Dennis Fagaly and Steve Ekman. In 1966, they relocated to San Francisco, where they were part of the exploding, nascent psychedelic Ballroom scene, influencing none other than Jerry Garcia and sharing stage with bands like The Warlocks (pre–Grateful Dead), Quicksilver and Big Brother among others. Upon returning to Oregon, they self–released in 1968 their only album, housed in a striking hexagonal, over–sized silver foil cover, now a holy grail between psychedelic collectors. Innocent vocal harmonies, fuzzy bass, jangly guitars, raga sounds...
"Many punters feel that this LP epitomizes the innocent first wave of "the West Coast Sound" before it was quickly corrupted." – John T. Berg.
