Pig Rider was formed in Kent, UK, in the late '60s by John Mayes and Colin Kitchener. With a lil' help from some friends they recorded and self-released a series of acetate only psych-folk albums in the mid-'70s ('Heterophonies', 'Bloody Turkey Sandwiches'), which are prime examples of early DIY psychedelic music, and highly sought-after since a review of 'Heterophonies' appeared in the 'Galactic Ramble' book. This DOUBLE-DISC compilation however features tracks recorded between 1980 and 1986, a period in which the members listened to the Bonzos, Pink Floyd and The Misunderstood. Although these bands were influences, the music is largely characterized by the available instruments and what could be done with them, also in unconventional ways. The result? A totally unique style of DIY psychedelic pop! Truly jaw dropping stuff!

Also available: THE ROBINSON SCRATCH THEORY (2CD) (CD).
