Vinyl reissue of this ultra-rare underground wasted hard rock classic private press record from 1970, originally released on the Zonk! label. Wild, loud, raw New Jersey hard psych beast thats been a favorite target of record collectors, dealers and swamp dwellers for the past two decades. The bible of underground psych rock, Acid Archives, says this about it: "This legendary private press is rated as one of the ultimate local basement hard rock blowouts by many connoisseurs. Released as early as 1970, the end result has some similarities to MC5's hallowed Kick out the Jams, but I find this a superior and more powerful album." Popular UK magazine thats majors in all things 60s and psychedelic, Shindig!, proclaims: "a masterpiece of zonked out, fuzz-drenched hard rock." The limited edition vinyl pressing comes with a poster and an insert with liner notes, photos, clippings and lyrics. ..............

Sainte Anthonys Fyre formed in 1968 from Trenton, New Jersey and constisted of band leader, guitar wiz and vocalist Greg Ohm, Tom Nardi on bass and vocals and Bobb Sharples on drums. This is the ultimate wasted slimy speed freak vortex of polluted psychedelic hard rock from the greasy wasteland of inner city Jersey. The most wicked manic garage power trio to end them all. Raw gnarly drugged guitar, cavernous bass, drums beat to a pulp and psychotic vocals...........

Folks it's time for another crating raw psychedlic blast that will blow ya socks straight off. This monster trio from New Jersey is a top notch monster power trio with clear musical roots with Cream, Hendrix and Blue Cheer. Take the fluent wild jaming style of Cream and heavy finess of Hendrix and rawer than raw monsterous fuzz approach of Blue Cheer and you have this monster hardrock/Heavy psych album in a nutshell. Great talent, good catchy songs and a mindblowing raw violent fuzzed out vibe with good shouted vocals and you'll understand why this is another $1000 rarity..Yes because it delivers the goods in a great way. Only flaw really is the production or lack there of. Blast this like there is no tomorrow and spread the word to everyone. My choice cut here is "Lone soul road" that pulverizes everything in it's way. Blast a way!!.................

Vinyl reissue of collectable private press record from 1970 that demands $1000 at auction that has been carefully mastered and packaged to faithfully reproduce the original release right down to the labels.
Another sure to sell-out limited edition vinyl release from Vintage/Rockadrome including 11×17 poster and full size insert with liner notes, press clippings and lyrics.Wild, loud, raw New Jersey hard psych beast from 1970 that’s been a favorite target of record collectors, dealers, aficianados and swamp dwellers for the past few decades. Also described thus: “Totally fucked up, messed up New Jersey hard psych monster that can’t be bettered. Loud, wasted vocals, speedfreak riffing / soloing, bashing rhythm section, like a hayride to hell. To me, one of the all-time best albums if you like drugged-out 60s anarchic hard psych.” Another quality collaboration between Lion Productions and the Vintage/Rockadrome label. Deluxe package includes an 11×17 poster and full size insert with liner notes, press clippings and lyrics....................

Legendary proto-metal/psych private press side: released in 1970 this is a classic wasted thug-punk album with a ton of fuzz, crude riffs and a totally crunching rhythm section giving way to doofy harmonies and endless murky distorto solos. The amazingly named Greg Ohm handles guitar and vocal duties and his approach is totally first Blue Cheer album in terms of its ambition and inability to match Hendrix in terms of third stone sonics. The lyrics are classic Bonehead about getting good loving and being turned on but most importantly the songs are simple excuses, mere vehicles, for total six string scorch.

The band have an amazing shuffling boogie style that trades doomy atmospherics for get-down dynamics and amphetamine breakouts in a way that has something in common with the early MC5’s testifying style but there’s something a little more crude and basement-blunt about Sainte Anthony’s Fyre that ‘does it’ that bit better.

Gonzo, hard-rockin' madness! We're Definitely feeling this one - it's like Marty McFly time-travelled back in time and created a band that was executed per our exact taste! The "Hard Stuff", with a hint of bluesy rockin, but with a definite proto-punk attitude and swagger that elevates this above your typical Seventies hard stuff. These guys had to have had their ears on the Motor City back in the day - we're hearing the unmistakable testosterone-fueled influence of the MC5 or The Rationals, as well as the sinister oil-caked, cabaret feel of Alice Cooper too.

These dudes were apparently courted by the bigs back in the day (Felix Pappalardi even offered to produce, but ultimately wanted too much moolah) and was a hair away from signing with Atlantic, but ultimately facing restrictions that would dictate their sound, decided against it, and recorded/released this one themselves. Fuck yeah! The "rough" sound of the record really is an asset to the overall feel and probably ups the aggression and sinister feel overall, with the guitars fuzzed out and pushing the red zone to the maxx, bro. If you dig Pentagram, Blue Cheer, Grand Funk, or even newer, backward-looking bands like Graveyard, Witchcraft and Fuzz, then prepare to feel the Heat.

"Official reissue of ultra-rare 1970 wasted underground hard rock monster! Wild, loud, raw New Jersey hard psych beast that’s been a favorite target of record collectors, dealers and swamp dwellers for the past two decades, originally released on the Zonk! label .This album is bleeding with that authentic dirty basement sound built around a solid set of catchy heavy weight tracks influenced by the holy trinity of Cream, Blue Cheer and Hendrix! The bible of underground psych rock, Acid Archives, says this about it: “This legendary private press is rated as one of the ultimate local basement hard rock blowouts by many connoisseurs. Released as early as 1970, the end result has some similarities to MC5′s hallowed Kick out the Jams, but I find this a superior and more powerful album."

In 1969 SAINTE ANTHONYS FYRE was the ultimate hardrock powertrio from Trenton, New Jersey. Band leader, guitar wiz and vocalist Greg Ohm was heavy into music since childhood, having played classical music in elementary and high school (1st violin Trenton High’s Orchestra). He also took some music classes in college and ended up with the group Peter's Precious Soul, who were very popular locally. But Greg grew tired of playing Top 40 cover songs and decided to start his own band. While cleaning his grandmother's attic one day in 1967 he found an old newspaper with the headline, "Ste. Anthony's Fyre Strikes French Town." A wheat crop had developed ergot, which is a fungus disease that affects rye and other plants, and was contaminated. The wheat was used to make bread and sent the whole town on an LSD-like trip that lasted nearly three weeks. This was the perfect name for the group Greg had in mind and thus Sainte Anthony's Fyre was born.

Greg recruited two skilled local musicians, and friends of his; Tom Nardi (previously in the bubblegum band Marshmallow Way) on bass and vocals and Bobb Sharples on drums. In 1968 they started rehearsing in the cellar of a boutique in downtown Trenton called the Hip-Pocket. Greg was extremely innovative and played weird positions, inverted chords, and off-key tuning on his customized Gibson Firebird guitar. He would only use Marshall’s, three 100-watt heads with six cabinets. Greg also considered himself a fashion plate and always wore a grey felt cowboy hat, a scarf tied around his left knee, and bedroom slippers when he played. Tom used a Sunn 2000S with four 15'' JBLs, four Sunn 412S cabinets with two Sunn Sorado heads, one Sorado head with a 610 cabinet, and one 15'' cabinet, to blow eardrums left and right. He also sported a cartridge belt around his waist. Bobbie always had a double bass drum set. This was a real power trio....by....adamus67..........
