Träd Gräs och Stenar - Live at Gärdet Stockholm 1970




Swedish psychedelia legends in their own right even before they formed this band. These guys had their roots in SWE psychedelic avantgarde bands like Mecki Mark Men Mk1, Pärsson Sound, International Harvestor. These guys were SWE art school avantgardists who had a special love for minimalist repetive droning artists of the 1960s. Their aspirations where to be avantgarde minimalist band, yet in some way their jazz and psychedelic influences affected their music, and it all became more of a crude raw avantgarde/jazz/SF psychedelic rock hybrid, specially with their cruder rawer than Blue Cheer sound. Their real people vibe shines always through their music and these guys define the SWE real people hippies of the day.., in other words a more organic nature loving vibe with their feet firmly in the soil, this ofcourse combined with that simple minimalist anti materialistic  approach. Here you have a live tape released by subliminal sounds records, of their free festival gig at Festen på Gärdet 1970 (Party at Gärdet) a real people underground free festival in Stockholm organized by the band themselves.. See the movie of it on Utube. Have a raw crude real people trip.. Subliminal sounds still stocks this cd and a 2 Lp set get it.
