The Secret Syde-Hidden Secrets

The connection between psychedelic punks and later day punks is a fairly clear linear movement. But most people don't think of their beloved punk records as being psychedelic and that is often more of a socio-historical understanding of the evolutions of genres. But here was a band that clearly demonstrated a love for classic psych while simultaneously being able to play the same stage as Black Flag. Forgive them for being from Jersey. There actually was a time when great things came from that state. I suppose that notion sounds as antique as these recordings. But I am still on the lookout for a mission oak coat rack and a nice art nouveau floor lamp too, so who am I to criticize antiques.
