Danny Forman Some amazingly deep Cambodian psych grooves! Favorite track: Sarawan Chhan Penh Boromei.

Gavin Hellyer It's great that such music is now becoming more widely available. This was originally recorded and released as a cassette in Cambodia in 1974 before the Khmer Rouge regime put a stop to such things. Fantastic to be finally able to get this stuff so many thanks to the Metal Postcard label and Dandelion Radio. Favorite track: Chhkuot Chhet Thbet Snae Onn.

about

The Holy Grail Of Cambodian Pre-Khmer Rouge Rock Psych Music

Recorded in Phnom Penh in 1973 live to 4 track and released only on cassette.

Now for the first time ever this album will be available on vinyl (+ bonus free downloads of tracks recorded at the same time) and it's available digitally too

Because the masters had to be hidden away for nigh on 40 years we gave them to mid century remasterers par excellence .. The Carvery (London) who gave the tracks emergency heart surgery and have revealed a band that sound part classic Cambodian pop, part Led Zeppelin part Incredible String Band lost in the SE Asian Jungle. This is a one off. Don't miss it

+ Exhaustive sleeve notes too

Limited edition of 500 copies only on vinyl.

So pre-order early to ensure your copy
