There are other Music Machine compilations available but this is still one of the best. Issued in ’84 on Rhino Records, this is an excellent comp for L.A. blackgloved 60’s punkers, comprised almost entirely of single versions, plus 4 unreleased tracks. All the tunes are powerful originals written by Sean Bonniwell and crew as killer psych/punk ”Talk Talk”, ”The People In Me”, ”Double Yellow Line”, ”The Eagle Never Hunts The Fly”, ”Mother Nature-Father Earth”, ”Love Me Again”, ”Dark White”… MM is top ten 60’s garage band and one of my alltime favorites. Vinyl rip by Surfadelic. Welome to the ‘dark world’ of The Music Machine!
“AN OVERDOSE OF HEAVY PSYCH showcases over-the-top, fuzzed-out masterpieces. Excessive guitars, wild effects and tripped-out lyrics all produce magical and imaginative music from this by-gone era.”
“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). These tracks were typically cut later than many of the other garage-band compilation series, and influences are second generation bands like Steppenwolf, Blue Cheer, Love, and the Stooges. While poppier sounds are eschewed on these sides, according to the liner notes these heavier slabs are the flip sides of lighter material. If the ballads on garage comps are the ones you skip over, by all means pick up a copy of this collection…you won’t be disappointed. An extra bonus are six caveman-stomping cuts by the Boneheaded 31 Flavors, originally from two low-budget psych-sploitation albums on the Crown label.”(AMG)
Probably one of the best garage/psych comps that feature mostly late 60’s fuzzed-out killer tunes by Orange Wedge, Quiet Jungle, 20th Century Zoo, Powered By Love, Crystal Rain, Glass Sun, Graf Zeppelin, Blu-Erebus, Boston Tea Party… Many alltime favs, killer fuzz all over the place… There are more fuzz than you ate hot meals. Don’t miss it! Dig!!!
