Psycotic Pineapple - I Wanna Wanna Wanna Wanna Wanna Wanna Wanna Get Rid Of You 7"

Apologies for so little activity, I have really been struggling to find any spare time, and also for holding back this little gem from Bruce Jones. So as I'm still busy I'll let Bruce's own words tell you all about this band:

"Right... this is the second and final 45 by a Californian band called, "Psycotic Pineapple". Released on the U.S. Richmond label in 1979, "I Wanna Get Rid Of You/Ahead Of My Time" has been described as a bit like the Dickies with a pinch of 60's garage which is a fair comparison.
I prefer the B-side myself and to me there's a definite 60's garage thing going on. BTW, the B-side is a non-LP track.
The band also recorded an album in 1980 which is really cool if you like the 60's kinda garage feel and they do a couple of obvious garage covers. Speaking of covers, the artwork for the bands releases are excellent as are their posters."

In my opinion I prefer "I Wanna Get Rid Of You" but I agree it's a great slice of garage sound and would comfortably sit on the classic "Nuggets" collection from the 60's even this was released in 1979. As is often the way, it was a spooky coincidence that the same day Bruce sent this to me, the excellent Twilight Zone also posted their one and only album here.

So what do you think? Leave a comment and as always a thanks to Bruce, whose got some more gems coming soon.

For that it's worth, they were from Berkeley, CA and at least some of them still live in the area...all the artwork was done by John Seabury (the same "John C. Berry" in the band photo). They did a great series of gig flyers, all illustrated in the same style...which apparently attracted more attention than the band ever did.

The LP is a lot of fun.
