Trippy ’60s-styled psychedelia from Australia!
Originally issued as a 12” mini-album in 1986, Tyrnaround’s ‘Colour Your Mind’ has become a touchstone of 1980s Neo-Psychedelia and almost certainly one of the best records of the second psychedelic era.
Influenced by classic ’60s British Psychedelia it was also inspired by The Dukes of Stratosphear’s ‘25-O-Clock’ and perhaps exceeds that record’s trip factor with the acid infused title track (featured on Amorphous Androgynous ‘Wizards of Oz’ Compilation and also famously covered by Vibravoid) blending searing acid fuzz guitar, swirling keyboards, surreal lyrics and sumptuous early Floyd like harmonies.
Now expanded to a full length LP, including all the bands singles as well as the rare Freakbeat Magazine 45 ‘Paragon-Smythe’ (featuring the never released before unedited version), this could be seen as Tyrnaround’s perfect debut album.
