Hurry sundown, I love the sound of breaking glass, International jet set, Dripcots space boat, Sandman and more.
Over many many years the name Bubble Puppy (a Texan group from the later 60’s) has popped up again and again in books and in liner notes from records, referring to a Bubble Puppy sound. I became more and more obsessed to hear Bubble Puppy.
I started creating a compilation of what I thought the feeling of Bubble Puppy might be, not allowing much analysis, in a sort of grab and snatch style. I learned, much to my excitement that Sundazed Records had reissued the album, it was then that I knew, I was finally going to hear Bubble Puppy. So I waited and waited till one day it arrived! I raced home and cranked it. It was damn good! Different to how I expected, with its luscious Love/Moby Grape type vocals and dirty proto-metal intros, but then I started picking up the nifty cymbal & guitar flurries, the sharp, hip twists and turns of the Bubble Puppy Sound. Once I had let the album sink in I was able to choose some tracks to contribute to the ‘Bubble Puppy & Friends’ mix you are now hearing
