Tormentors ‎ “Hanging Round” 1967 US Psych Garage Rock








Tormentors ‎ “Hanging Round” 1967 ultra rare US Psych Garage Rock

formed in 1967 in Los Angeles. Released only album of the pilot (at the time) crazy light rock with a bias in the garage a bit, with good vocal harmonies, strange sounds bizarre background and superimposed on it all rather whimsical psychedelia............

A truly experimental psych/rock/pop album from 1967. Featuring some very good garage, psych, and British Invasion sounds. Fuzzed out guitar, great vocal harmonies, and some really bizzare background sounds!!...........

Long awaited Void release of 1967 California garage folkadelia with some fuzz. Features the moody "Childhood Memories" and the rockin' "Cause You Don't Love Me" alongside a nice Beau Brummels cover. The Tormentors Hanging Round is mega rare as an original and sought after the world over. Exact cover design for this vinyl reissue..............

The Tormentors were another great yet undiscovered band from the 1960's. All we know is that they were based out of the Los Angeles area and had several singles out on the Royal and Kenwood labels. Of those 45s, the track "Motate" was the only one not included on this LP.

Fantastic garage psyche and rollicking, with sweeter moments, too – getting off a number of modes this one album, which would make a lesser group sound aimless – but they manage to pull it all off! Some tunes have a raw, no frills garage sound, others have sweeter, but still kinda gritty melodic vibe with some organ in the mix, and still others steer towards moody psychedelia..........
