Episode 4 - The Heavy Metal Kids, Hard Rock and Heavy Psych Sounds Part 1

This is the first part in our short exposé of heavy psychedelia and hard rock in the late 60s and early 70s. This is a subject we haven’t discussed previously so therefore we’re going to dedicate two episodes on this.  The focus of today’s episode is on private pressed singles from the US while the second part will include some UK and Swedish bands as well. The set list is quite eclectic, ranging from acid rock to full-blown hard rock and early metal, where heavy is the common denominator. We wish to thank Lance Barresi, co-owner of Permanent Records and curator of the Brown Acid compliation series, as well as Stefan Kéry from Subliminal Sounds who helped us with info and music for the two episodes.
