TEST PATTERNS: VOL. 1
The track Tab was originally released back in 1988 on the demo 'Forget About Life, I’m High On Dope'. This is a 2021 mix of the original demo. with both tracks being over 24 minutes each. It's viewed as an influential track with psychedelic / heavy psych / space rock and stoner rock fans and will sit nicely alongside Sleep's 'Dopesmoker'.
Julian Cope described the original release as distilling Hawkwind, Sabbath and The Stooges into a lysergic soup of brown acid and bathtub meth, and ultimately cultivating a “Altamont vibe”; that is, the negative end of the psychedelic spectrum.
