As you can hear in “Poison Apple” above, Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats are a band for you if you’re into the current retro-, psychedelic, doom trip trend. I don’t like using the word “trend,” but this scene is gaining speed. As we’ve been told, within Mind Control‘s “blood-soaked grooves you will hear shocking tales of bizarre desert ceremonies, religious brainwashing, and drug inspired mass slaughter.” If that doesn’t sound ripe for , I don’t know what does.

About Mind Control:
Mind Control is a concept album with a theme that makes the acts and intentions of the likes of Charles Manson and Jim Jones seem like petty crimes. What makes Mind Control scarier than most albums is that it doesn’t seem as sinister on the surface as it really is deep down, within the core of its black acid-drenched world of pain and torture.
Imagine the original Alice Cooper band jamming in a cell with earlyand the Stooges, whilst sitting on murder charges and you may get a glimpse into their fuzzed up world of exploding tube amps and cymbal smashing mayhem. However, this enticing act of musical manipulation is merely the icing upon a very sick cake.
Recorded at the legendary Chapel Studios over an autumnal full moon using the finest western electrical technology, engineer Jim Spencer (Bert Jansch, Robert Wyatt) has captured perfectly the band’s live sound of saturated fuzz, mind-bending riffs, and ’60s vocal harmonies.
