We’ve got three awesome new European underground reissues from Shadoks Music available for preorder this week!
This is Shadoks Music’s third release from the great Finnish psych band, Charlies. Recorded in ’69-’70 in the drunk tank of the local jail (one of the member’s fathers was a police officer, so they were granted access), this album finally achieves the heavy underground quality that the band felt their previous releases lacked.
Catching up with the love and peace sentiments of the rest of the Western world, Austrian band Nostradamus formed in Vienna in the late 60s. With influences such as The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, and King Crimson and the addition of a violinist, this album is one of the best and most unique Austrian releases of the time.
Also influenced by powerful trios like Cream and The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Young Flowers formed in Copenhagen in 1967. Progressive and with a uniquely Scandinavian sound, Young Flowers released a second album in 1960, ‘No. 2′, which has since become one of the most important and sought after Danish albums. Full of fuzz guitar, great vocals and an underground vibe, Shadok’s reissue comes as the original did with a silver cover. Plus this version comes with a bonus poster. Oh and by the way, the band has two upcoming shows in Denmark!
