    The two-piece 60's garage outfit The Octopus Ride, now have a run of 100 limited edition 12” LP's on white vinyl and they available for purchase!

    Pressed on white vinyl this record is a gem!

    This LP sounds like it was recorded in the early 60's. The album was tracked live and produced in a warehouse in Melbourne on reel to reel tape by Paul Maybury. Maybury recently produced the Melbourne psych Rock ‘n’ Roll powerhouse King Gizzard and the Wizard Lizard’s LP ‘12 Bar Bruise’ and he has a huge catalog of lo-fi live recordings to boot.

    The lyrics carry this record and they will spin your mind sideways "Busy bee please tell me when to rest, when your on the road of love in excess".

    The bands debut LP is heavily influenced by Syd Barretts solo release 'The Madcap Laughs'. The all-time classic Barrett track 'Octopus' says it all.

    The Octopus Ride LP ‘The garden waits for you’ is a jangly yet driven lo-fi 60's sound. It has the nostalgic feel of the early Velvet Underground, Stooges and Modern Lovers live recordings. Yet the music makes a raw attack to modern indie guitar music.

    With 8 tracks on the Octopus debut LP, Each track draws influence from different era's and concepts of finding freedom in Rock 'n' roll music.

    The process of recording the LP live to reel to reel in an open warehouse environment gives the whole album nostalgic 1960’s lo-fi sound. Yet some songs have a 90's fuzzed out edge, others have a raw 80's punk feel and others just feel spun out like a mix of 70's psych and modern chill-wave rolled into one hit.

    The Octopus Ride have a 12" LP that is well worth your time. The bands debut release is a gem and with a run of 100 limited edition original pressings on white 12" Vinyl, this is not to be missed.

    Lo-fi records simply must be experienced on Vinyl.

    Enjoy the ride, it's a trip.
