ROGER MILLER-OH, LP, 1988, USA




Though most folks surveying this artist's body of work would have you believe otherwise, this home recorded 4-track spectacular is actually the crowning glory in the recorded canon of this iconic guitarist/keyboardist, whose musical contributions have spanned many of the key divides in the history of subcultural audio, from his teen years in the 60's psychedelic outfit Sproton Layer and his post punk work in the the legendary Mission Of Burma to his years in the systemic/post-prog/art rock ensemble Birdsongs Of The Mesozoic. Issued in a hand sprayed sleeve on Forced Exposure's old in-house imprint, the plangently squalling detuned edifices of stacked electric guitars that inhabit many of these tracks either cede to or buttress episodes of phenomenal Chris Knox-by-way-of-Skip-Spence psych pop ingenuity.

WOW!!! What a rip-ff on Singer Roger Miller, who had 14 million-selling hits! This guy is a total scam by using the name of the late "Nationally-Known" Performer.Hey, can't this guy use another name: Let's see he could use "Buddy Holly", "Ringo Starr","John Lennon",
or "Slash". (Those are some that I just made up!) Shame on you the so-called Roger Miller!!

The rear side of my LP's sleeve is black and grey. Love seeing others of these "custom" unique sleeves, like Shoulder of Mutton A or Mauve Sideshow...

Birdsongs Of The Mesozoic were never as good without him.

On a different matter, how does one contact Mr. Mutant Sounds in Greece via his blog page? I was wondering if he'd like to officially host some of our releases, as he's already posted some. Alto Stratus, Endgame & such-like
