Stack Attack Volume 5 (Rare Underground Hard, Heavy rock gems from the 70,s Underground)



Here is an new instalment of this compilation series and it's a damn good one if I say so myself (and I ofcourse do...) Here you have a bunch of rare hard, heavy rock tunes that have caught my fancy and which have been in heavy rotation here at the Heavypsychmanblog headquaters for awhile now.. It's like a distilation of the best and heaviest goodies that rival the more known greats, who just missed the boat due to various reasons (or in several cases didn't).
Bless the underground for giving them another lease on life. Have a blast folks and thanks for another kick ass underground year and I wish you all the best and lets make 2015 even better or as great this year. What we all need is a underground music variant of say spotify or similar.. yes I know Utube is doing it currently but I think you understand my point. Rock on to the music folks!! Now Get ya compilation ya all!

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.
