Medicine Head - New Bottles, Old Medicine LP (180gr, Reissue) *** UPCOMING ON RADIATION
Out July 28th
New Bottles Old Medicine is the 1970 debut from British group Medicine Head, a duo at the time, that had only shortly before been discovered by legendary DJ John Peel, who immediately signed them to his Dandelion record label. One of the more enigmatic and inventive groups of the British folk-rock scene, the duo's leader, John Fiddler would simultaneously sing, play guitar and operate a bass drum and hi-hat cymbal with his foot, while bandmate Peter Hope-Evans would play harmonica, jew's harp, and various percussion instruments. Creating a sound that was simultaneously ethereal and earthy, and with a voice that touched on the heartbroken vibes of Nick Drake and John Martyn, Medicine Head are truly one of the most brilliant groups of early 70s UK scene and rarely get the attention they deserve. This deluxe 180 gram vinyl reissue hopes to help right that wrong.
