Great Society Sucks: Halloween 1968 (CD)
Were not evil, but we do evil things. Anything to blow societys mind. When we play, we take peoples brains out and then put them back in. A dry-cleaning job". So said The Fallen Angels lead singer and songwriter, Jack Bryant, in an interview with the short-lived Dapper Magazine in 1968. Since that time there has never been a live performance from the 60s of The Fallen Angels released. This album seeks to rectify that situation and is a time capsule of that turbulent year. Since Washington DC was the home for The Fallen Angels, the band did not miss out on radicalizing the 1968 Presidential elections-letting their disparaging views on the LBJ and his "Great Society" be aired. Amidst all the politics is a great live performance by The Fallen Angels, combining original songs from their two psychedelic albums ("No Way Out", "Poor Old Man") with a previously unreleased song ("Everything Would Be Fine"), along with covers of Dylan (done acid-rock style), Donovan (raga-rock style), and Love (the highlight of the show, "Signed DC", a nine minute tour de force, interrupted by a fist fight in the audience). The Fallen Angels broke up a year later in 1969, but not before blowing many a mind on the east coast during their glorious reign in Washington DC
