Editorial Reviews

UK collection from this obscure American Psych quintet. NGC 4594 issued just one single, 'Skipping Through the Night', on Smash Records in 1968. Alongside that sole 45, this CD for the very first time offers a dozen recordings from a lost album the band made during 1967/68.NGC 4594 formed in Storrs, Connecticut, but swiftly relocated to NYC before eventually disbanding in late 1968. An absolute 'find' for fans of West Coast-influenced Psychedelic music! The band was named after the catalog number of the Sombrero Galaxy, thought to be the location of the nearest black hole to Earth. Tune In. 2010.

Hearing this album was an absolute revelation for me. I would not have believed there could ever be a complete album's worth of unreleased studio recordings of such outstanding quality from '67 still to be discovered. Shame on Mercury records for not releasing this at the time! Had they done so it would surely be now universally revered as one of that year's timeless classics, and spoken of in the same breath with the likes of "Sergeant Pepper's...", "Piper at the Gates....", "Absolutely Free", "Velvets & Nico" and "Electric Music for the Mind and Body". Indeed, if any comparison is to be made, the closest would have to be that peerless debut from Country Joe and the Fish. The lyrics certainly have a similar lysergic flavour to those Joe McDonald was putting down at the time, but it is the use of the organ that is so reminiscent of David Cohen's work with the Fish. When you combine that with lead guitar that also sounds a lot like Cohen (as against Barry Melton) and some harmonica - well, have a listen to "Forever Gone" and you'll see what I mean. However, it's worth remembering that "Electric Music" was itself barely off the presses when NGC was laying down these tracks, so the influence must have come from live performances by the Fish and their Rag Baby EP from the previous year. There's certainly a bit of the Mothers in there as well. Some of the band's influences may be fairly obvious but don't get the idea that their product is derivative. Far from it - NGC4594 very definitely have have their own unique identity and sound. The opening track "Colors" immediately reminded me of a couple of tracks on the first Bevis Frond album "Miasma". Since that wasn't released until twenty years later one wonders if Nick Saloman had access to Mercury Records' vaults at some point.Read more ›

When it comes to reissues, oftentimes the hype can be laid on so thick objectivity goes out the window; this is especially true if the material is either previously unreleased or incredibly rare and expensive in its original vinyl incarnation. How many times have you heard the phrases "The Holy Grail of Psych," "Killer Long Lost Garage" and other such examples of hyperbole in the reissue field? Therefore it is especially gratifying to encounter something previously unreleased that truly delivers the goods on all levels and engages both the ears and the mind.

Taking their name from an astrology book (NCG-4594 is the name given to the Sombrero galaxy in the constellation of Vertigo), NGC-4594 issued one 45 on Mercury subsidiary Smash in July 1967. With both sides the band set out their stall right from the outset: The A-Side "Going Home" being a low key folk rocker; the flip side "Skipping Through The Night" with it's dual keyboards (organ and electric piano) and flute exploring more mellow, jazzy terrain. The lyrics to both sides display an introspective quality that, to these ears, was definitely borne of more than a few acid exepriences. A heady, intoxicating brew to be sure. Despite critical acclaim and some airplay, the 45 was clearly too advanced for AM radio as it was not a hit. In the years since the 45's reputation has only grown and is very much sought after by fans/collectors of psychedelia.

The good news is, there's more where that came from as the band recorded a further 12 tracks for Smash that, had the 45 caught on, would certainly have been made available in LP form to capitalize on the momentum. The material here is easily of the same quality as the 45 and, in some instances, may even surpass it.

Buried within the "name" bands and tunes of the psychedelic era are a few rare treasures. Always True to the streams of thought dashed on rocks and streams behind Leary, Alpert, and Bliss lie certain truths uncovered by NGC 4594, the Band. The Intensity of the ride on "Nova Express", coupled with the lost hope and faith in the question "Where are you comn' from?" ended in a spiral of song as bloody waters spun down the drain in "Skippin"... with a bag of Roses in your hand. Blood-curdeling screams of joy for NGC as they let out all that hot air in one giant WHOOOOSH
