Rickard from Flowers Must Die give Dayz of Purple and Orange his 'Ten Of The Best'
Sweden has a long and distinguished history of psychedelic music; from the late sixties/early seventies legends that are Pärson Sound, via their later incarnation Träd, Gräs och Stenar and stretching to the current crop of ace bands like Goat, Hills and Kungens Män. One of the very finest contemporary Swedish psych bands are Flowers Must Die - consistently inventive and always quality, their albums are a lysergic journey through psych history channeling the aforementioned Träd, Gräs och Stenar via Can and Amon Düül II and throwing in some modern post-punk attitude for good measure. Their last album 'Kompost' (Rocket Recordings) was a triumph and cemented their place at Psych's top table.
Good news for us lucky blighters here in the UK, the band are touring, starting this week:
16th - Cardiff, The Moon
17th - Reading, Public
18th - Birmingham, Supersonic Festival
19th - Cambridge, The Portland Arms (supported by Psychic Lemon no less!)
20th - London, Café Oto (supporting The Space Lady)
Anyway, to the business at hand - Rickard from the group has very kindly spared to time to put together a list of 10 of his fave records...and it's a pretty damned cool list....cheers Rickard...
