The Psychedelic Aliens - Psycho African Beat - out on Academy LPs



The Psychedelic Aliens Psycho African Beat
The Psychedelic Aliens - Psycho African Beat
(CD/LP/4x7" boxset) Academy LPs ALP005/ACD005/ABS005, 2010-10-26

Like most stories involving aliens this one seems, well, made up. For a few years in the late 60's to early 70's worlds collided and aliens walked among us. And made music. Psycho African Beat is the complete recorded output of this amazing group and their unprecedented music that combined elements of American soul, funk, garage rock and psych with African rhythms and melodies. This magical moment lasted for 3 short years producing only 3 releases: 1 - 4 song EP + 2 - 7"s. Today, these 3 original releases are the most sought after and most elusive African funk records. It took Frank Gossner (Voodoofunk.com, Soulpusher, DJ Franco) 4 years, 9 visits to Ghana, and dozens of newspaper ads and radio announcements to track them down.
