Hotlegs was a short-lived English band best known for its hit single "Neanderthal Man" in 1970. The band consisted of Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley, Lol Creme and - briefly - Graham Gouldman. In 1972 the band was relaunched as 10cc. The album was reissued on Grapefruit Records a division of Cherry Red in October of 2012. Remastered by Paschal Byrne the current version includes "Thinks School Stinks" album as originally sequenced with the tracks that were substituted/added for "You Didn't Like It Because You Didn't Think Of It" at the end of the CD including the slightly different alternate U.S. single mix of "Neanderthal Man". This new edition also featured new artwork commissioned especially for this release.
Originally released in 1964 and 1965 on the Fontana label. Included among the ranks of The Mindbenders were future 10cc members Eric Stewart (at the time of these recordings) on guitar and vocals, and later (1968) Graham Gouldman on bass. For straightforward solid meat'n'potatoes British Beat, one need look no further than Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders. What they lacked in originality they more than made up for in good old-fashioned exuberance and panache.

Tramseböx (1975). Debut album from Swedish psych/prog band. 9 tracks of ambitious, spooky 1970s psychedelia with atmospheric and cosmic sounds. With Swedish lyrics and focus on guitars, that are often quite fuzzed out. Compared to their 2nd album, "Gudang Garam", this is more in the direction of hippie psych, at times reminiscent of both Älgarnas Trädgård as well as Träd, Gräs & Stenar. Even seen them being compared to Kennelmus and Bent Wwind. The sound have been cleaned up from the mastertape. First time on CD…
