crustacean 72: Vibravoid – In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida
7″ colour vinyl, gatefold sleeve (45rpm)
everyone’s favourite German psych rock group tear through the Iron Butterfly classic; it’s always great to have Vibravoid on the label – their records invariably sell-out fast – the song is part of the band’s live set, but this studio version was specially recorded for FdM
How have we managed to fit a 14 minute track onto a 7″? it’s split across the two sides!
crustacean 73: Sidewalk Society – The Action/Bowie covers
7″ four-track EP – colour vinyl (33rpm)
the USA’s best interpreters of 60s UK sounds return to FdM after too long away with two covers from The Action’s ‘Rolled Gold’ and two 60s Bowie songs, including their contribution to the members club ‘Fashion’ CD.
Sidewalk Society are a class act – their love for the 60s shows through in the care and attention they put into every recording.
crustacean 74: The Fruits de Mer Records Guide to The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy
7″ colour vinyl + bonus CD (33rpm)
FdM’s bit of summer fun for 2017 as Astralasia, Icarus Peel and Blue Giant Zeta Puppies do strange things to the theme to that wonderful 70s radio and TV series, which began life as an Eagles instrumental (the theme, not the series)
AND, because we’re in a perpetual good mood, every copy of the single Includes a bonus CD of remixes, new music inspired by the original track and a version by the Quantum Surf Rocket Garage Dolls that we couldn’t squeeze onto the 7″
