The fourth volume in the Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble series, the previously mentioned Australian-focused release, has finally been given a release date of 16th March.
FSOLDigital gives the following blurb:
‘The Wizards Of Oz’ is devoted exclusively to the rich heritage of cosmic space music of our Antipodean brothers and sisters and in common with previous volumes traces the lineage from the sixties to the present day with sonic delights from every decade in between.
Across the double CD there is a 2 hour DJ mix of 34 tracks where we are treated to everything from Kiwi Krautrock to Aboriginal space jazz to OZ dream pop to cOZmic funkrok: CYBOTRON / TAME IMPALA / KANGURU / RUSSELL MORRIS / GEOFF KROZIER & THE GENERATOR / HIROSHI & CLAUDIA / MADDER LAKE / ROB THOMSETT / MANDU / DOUG JEREBINE / POND / SONS OF THE VEGETAL MOTHER / RAILROAD GIN & AIR are just a few of the delights contained therein.
Meanwhile, in a short feature on the Mojo website, Gaz adds:
'While previous editions of A Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble… saw Future Sound Of London alumni Gaz Cobain and Brian Dougans (pictured) champion a host of their psychedelic favourites, for this mix the duo found themselves stumbling across artists who were completely new to them.
“As the collection evolved the question that arose with increasing regularity was, ‘How and why have we not heard this before?!’” they explain. “And then, ‘If this band had been from the UK or the USA would they have been unheard and unknown?’ The answer to this was a resounding No!”'
