Overdose of Heavy Psych

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jim Powers
What sets this apart from the many other similar '60s garage-psych releases is the extremeness of the music. Tracks collected here feature grungier guitars, slower or varied tempos and darker and more ominous atmosphere than earlier punk singles...and more fuzz and heavier feedback even the occasional oscillator.
