While we’re still on the subject of that scene, though, I got news of a pretty amazing event in San Francisco this autumn. The Frisco Freakout promises “Good trips, organic eats and the best in California psychedelic rock” – namely Wooden Shjips, Assemble Head In Sunburst Sound, Magic Lantern, Citay and plenty more. The date’s October 10 and, like many of you I suspect, I wish I could be there.

Back down to earth, here’s this week’s office CD selection. The Spacemen 3 entry is a new reissue of “The Perfect Prescription”, but unless you desperately need the CD in a “new mini gatefold digipak version”, don’t get too excited – there’s no bonus material.
