Tickets For Doomsday: Heavy Psychedelic Funk, Soul, Ballads & Dirges 1970-1975 [BFRSD2021]
Now-Again Records follow up to one of its most well-loved compilations, Forge Your Own Chains, with another batch of rare, largely uncompiled--and sometimes barely heard--heavy psych-rock and funk. Pounding drums, scathing fuzz guitar and morose, contemplative lyrics will bring you up on a downer.
Tickets For Doomsday, as the title hints, is and rumination on what might befall the human race – made especially salient by the past year’s trials and tribulations – as performed by prison funk ensembles, Indonesian hippies, Krautrock legends, Icelandic prog-rock bands and even Bay Area rap catalyst E-40’s uncle, the man to rst distribute Master P’s No Limit Records, and the creator of this album’s title track, St. Charles “Chucky” Thurman. A unique and compelling listen, and surely a worthy companion for these times.
