The Red Krayola were a band at the very  cutting edge of psychedelic music  and have been described as the 'notorious self-styled bastard sons of the hippie dream'. They broke boundaries, unleashed a free-form anti rock noise on unsuspecting audiences, took to the stage with an experimental  ensemble called the Familiar Ugly and all this in conservative 1967 Houston.
 
This their first , and finest album from 1967, recorded for International Artists Records , in which leader Mayo Thompson leads them amongst the freak outs in a selection of enduring songs such as the much copied 'Hurricane Fighter Plane' and 'War Sucks'.
 
This release is a deluxe gatefold two record edition featuring both the mono and stereo versions.
 
It was lovingly re-mastered from the original tapes by devoted fan, Sonic Boom of Spacemen Three who considers the band the greatest and yet least recognised of the great 60' experimenters and visionaries.
