Psychedelic Rock, Acid Rock

Axe were a British psych band led by acid-rock guitar player Tony Barford and graced by Vivienne Jones' ethereal vocals. In 1970, they recorded a demo album and this is the first ever straight reissue of this artifact, as the previous "reissue" on the Kissing Spell label was altered without the band's consent. Heavy psych and acid-rock sounds full of raw, fuzzed-out guitars and dreamy female vocals. Four original songs plus a long cover of Love's "A house is not a motel". Carefully remastered from an original copy (master tapes were lost). Includes a CD with the same album plus a bonus 8 minute video track featuring colour silent footage of Crystalline/Axe playing live in 1970 with audio from the acetate added.
