John's Children

John's Children

This post is from the April 2006 issue of the Mojo magazine CD which provides a compilation of 15 bands from the psychedelic scene in London which spawned Pink Floyd (and a couple of years later the prog rock scene). The track I have posted here is from John's Children.

"Please. I-I'm losing my mind. Help me now before it's too late..." pleads John's Children's frontman Andy Ellison on this debut 1966 single by Surrey's acid advocates. An appearance alongside Pink Floyd, The Move, The Pretty Things et al at the 14-Hour Technicolour Dream at Alexandra Palace followed a year later, but Smashed Blocked remains John's Children at their most unhinged.
