Editorial Reviews

In 1967 The DEVIANTS led by the charismatic MICK FARREN recorded their very first album at IBC studios which cost the princely sum of £700 and unleashed upon the world what some people came to describe later as punk/garage music but then was called the ""London underground scene"".

Originally known as The Social Deviants (line-up 'A') this was a London-based community underground band that grew up in the Notting Hill area. Farren and Russell ran into a 21 year old millionaire who put up £700 to finance their first album on their own Underground Impressarios label. This was distributed by mail order through 'Oz' and 'The International Times' and sold sufficiently well for Decca to reissue it.

The material on their three albums was variable. The first included harsh punk (I'm Coming Home), percussion dominated progressivism (Nothing Man) as well as long gimmicky diatribes interspersed with none too imaginative music. Child Of The Sky and Bun were evidence of a softer side, but Deviation Street summarized their intent with a series of political slogans, sound effects and a variety of musical approaches which have not stood the test of time well.

Disposable had its moments, notably with good rock songs like Slum Lord, Jamie's Song, You've Got To Hold On, Fire In The City and Guaranteed. The remainder of the album was eminently disposable, however.

The Deviants also issued a single, which is now a rare collectors' item. After a disappointing third album the band disintegrated during an American tour. The remaining members plus Twink formed Pink Fairies. Rudolph also had a spell with Hawkwind.

In 1977 Farren reformed the band with a new line-up including Andy Colquhoun on bass/vcls and issued an EP for Stiff, entitled Stiff EP. In the same year their first album was reissued on Logo. Readers may also be interested in Human Garbage (Psycho 25), another 1984 reunion album, with a line-up of Farren (vcls), Sanderson (bs), Larry Wallis (gtr), Wayne Kramer (gtr) ex-MC5, and George Butler (drms).

Although Mick Farren had quite a high profile in the sixties, his involvement in counter-culture activities, especially his work for the International Times and other alternative presses, overshadowed his role as lead singer for the Deviants (originally the Social Deviants). Independent labels were very much a rarity in the UK in the sixties, not really surfacing until the advent of punk a decade later, although fitting very much with the ethos of the times. One of the reasons why Ptooff! is one of the great lost albums of 1967 is because it was only available on mail order from the underground Underground Impresarios, and never achieved the level of sales necessary to trigger the establishment publicity machine, although an edition of it did reappear on Decca two years later.

The band did have quite a following thanks to their live gigging, and if memory serves, were frequent visitors to Birmingham's Mothers, Mick Farren calling out "We don't care about rules and regulations!" as management turned off the mains power after an over-extended set.

Those that did get Ptooff! through the post found that it came housed in a three-foot wide pop-art poster with PTOOFF! in huge cartoon letters across it, de rigueur home decoration for the anti-establishment hippy. Those that consider 1967 to be the Summer of Love will be surprised at the sneering cynicism throughout the record, especially on tracks like I'm Coming Home, Garbage and the nine-minute tour de force Deviation Street.

Format: Audio CD
La psicodelia, tanto en su expresión norteamericana como británica, está plagada de esperpénticos y excesivos ejemplos como los aquí aludidos: The Deviants.
Formados en 1966 como Social Deviants -liderados por una de las mayores figuras del "underground" londinense, Mick Farren, el primer inglés en vestirse con pieles-, éstos nacieron como un colectivo de postura absolutamente anárquica y destructiva. Por lo mismo, su música -consiguiendo ser en algunos momentos altamente irritante para el oyente- era un disparatado cúmulo de frenesí, disparate y desvergüenza sonora-- Los Deviants no enfrentaban sus discos, o al menos así parecía, con la intención de crear obras comedidas y resueltas de forma convencional. Al contrario, el resultado y satisfacción logrados en sus álbumes fue en directa proporción de la incongruencia, sarcasmo y espontaneidad inmejorable que Farren y los suyos ostentaron. En Ptoff! podemos escuchar los más claros antecedentes de los Stooges, en I'm coming home; extraños ejercicios acústicos en "Children of the Sky; percusiones lunáticas en Nothing Man; mofas al esnobismo psicodélico en "Deviation Street", entre guitarras líquidas, ácidas y vocalizaciones enfermizas. "Ptoff" es una muestra exquisita del lado oscuro de la música británica de los sesenta, pero no por esto menos encomiable. Increíble
