Repress. All of the original compositions from the band's two self-released holy grails of psychedelia (the 'Black Album' and the 'Red Album', from 1967-'68) combined into one collection - newly transferred from the original tapes! Most of you have no doubt heard of records that have been touted as "mind blowing", "fuzz monsters", or "lost/undiscovered classics". The raves rarely turn out to be justified. That's certainly not the case with the music of Index - if anything, the raves underplay the essence of the band's music, which is seething with cavernous reverb, snaky guitar lines, and downer lyrics. It is fantastically minimalist, starkly atmospheric, and sprinkled with ferocious guitar work. The music of Index has been lauded by (and bootlegged by) music heads for decades, and with good reason: it is unexpected, atmospheric, and "home-made" in the best of all possible ways. The band has a druggie sound, with songs full of feedback and fuzzy guitars, hazy guitar riffs and loud pushy rhythms. And in there amongst the echoing canyons of sound you'll find some snotty post-punk attitude wrapped up in all that trippy velvet fuzz. It's a wonderful bleak sound, droning and murky and introspective-the atonal side of late 1960s rock that would leave the most lasting impression on those who would eventually become punk, post-punk and indie rock... you know, artists like Joy Division or the Fall or Felt to name three out of a thousand. Includes a 4-panel color insert, written by Index drummer Jim Valice, detailing the band's rock and roll adventures, replete with rare photos.
