psykicks Down the Drain (LP, £6.75)label: Fuzz Overdose Records
The Psykicks were formed at 2000 a.d. in Athens, Greece, in order to blow some minds, a mission terminated with a final gig on April 17, 2008. During their days of action they released a s/t E.P. and the Ignition Time L.P. among other releases -such as home-made C.D.s and participations in several compilations- and enjoyed their share of live performances, all in a haze of good ol' garagesurfmotorcityacid punk. Since their disbandment, past the point of no return, they are travelling in outer space, each on his own trip, searching for humans and other animals. Just before they called it a day, they recorded a final L.P., Down the Drain, produced by the notorious Jim Spliff, which remained unreleased since early 2008 and until today, when it' s finally out by Fuzz Overdose Records. It contains new versions of some of their oldest songs, for the first time on vinyl, as well as their very last creations, composed in the eve of the end, plus two covers, and exhibits their full potential in fuzzadelic rock 'n' roll, often polarized between sinister teenage fun and esoteric parachuting. So here it comes, only on vinyl, exclusively for real kids, guaranteed to satisfy your soul - if you' ve got one. Let's make some noise, as everything goes down the drain.
