...fairly decent(non-fi) sound on these demos,two go rounds for each tune though not followin' each other like on some boots'n 'proper releases'(specially blues/jazz comps)so its just like diggin' th'LP all over again...th'mersh production values're o'course not present so its th'coops rockin' out in th'studio, kickin' ideas around, see if it works...what made th'schools out joint not really up to par for what th'coops were capable o', was th'rejection o' th'late six oh anglo psych moves, th'way these cats took '67 psych/freak rockin'n mixed in some avantness was really forward lookin' for a yanquee combo(so much so they got labelled as a sham, a fake freak show 'n they may o' been freex but they sure weren't no fakes)comin' on some time like jimbo morrison jammin' with twin guitars yardbirds down th'marquee club in london towne while th'audience rolled around th'floor covered in blamange(truely happenin'/ed)'r comin' through th'ether like a sunset-strip-pink floyd jammin' out th'voodoo riff...these demos show them wantin' to get back to a more anglo influenced yanquee style but move it into this new glam rock decade so they grab some stonesian keef-boogie riff or a macca groove'n chuck in some 65/6 london visitin' zimmerman'n churn out some really acceptable garage seventies anthems...at this '73-juncture in time th'cats on th'block('n in rodneys english disco) had no idea what th'new alice disc was gonna sound like but through interdimension temporal transportin' th'demos're available for fresh perusal...some layabouts may wish to imagine th'last wax was killer'n now they've turned into a less shambolic mott th'hoople, though such a thing may not be desirous it may have been th'best thing for all concerned when th'future was rolled out'n formula took over but for th'bonghit o' NOW its just a groove from coopersville(th' only place to be)...
