Western Flier (CD)
ESOTERIC RECORDINGS are pleased to announce a newly remastered edition of the classic Psychedelic album "Western Flier" by HAPSHASH and the COLOURED COAT, Psychedelic graphic designers and darlings of London's Underground scene Michael English and Nigel Waymouth. Being responsible for a series of legendary posters for artists such as the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Traffic, Tomorrow, Soft Machine, Pink Floyd, The Who et al, Waymouth and English ventured into music after being persuaded to do so by friend, DJ and manager Guy Stevens. The first Hapshash album, "Featuring Human Host and the Heavy Metal Kids" featured the musicians from the band Art, later to become Spooky Tooth, and appeared on the Liberty's Minit label in 1967 and was a combination of electronic madness and improvised psychedelic freeform freak-out. By the end of 1968, the diversion from graphic art into music led to the end of the Waymouth / English partnership. Waymouth retained the name Hapshash and the Coloured Coat and signed a contract for a new album with Liberty Records. Entering the studio with Liberty staff producer Mike Batt and session musicians such as Tony McPhee (of the Groundhogs), drummer Andy Renton, guitarist Michael Mayhew, bass player Eddie Tripp and violinist Freddie Ballerini, the album "Western Flier" was the result.
