ALAN LEE BRACKETT – Peanut Butter Conspiracy Theories (Lost Songs 1967-68) 2016 (LP Out-Sider Music) /// ALAN LEE BRACKETT – Almost Famous / Journey To The Summer Of Love 2017 (Book)


Peanut Butter Conspiracy Theories (Lost Songs 1967-68)

Previously unreleased recordings, most of them written in 1967. Back from the “future” come these songs to reveal the unique sound of the PBC, a band ahead of its time… Main member of the band, Alan, gives us the opportunity to travel back through different kinds of music such as folk rock, psychedelic pop with some fuzzy elements mixed up together to create this particular kind of music composed and played mostly on his own, using improvised drum kits made up from household objects, amps and guitars to create feedback and distortion effects. Most of the songs were recorded by Alan using a Teac A1200 tape deck but still, it is difficult to understand the difference between those that were made in more professional surroundings. The result of all these is this album that sums up some serious doses of the sixties’ spirit. (TimeLord Edgart)
