Bulbous Creation

Here's some rather maudlin psych/hard blues rock goodness from a little known Missouri band called Bulbous Creation. This album, You Won't Remember Dying, was recorded in 1971 but didn't see a proper release until 1994 when the good folks at Rockadelic Records saved it from obscurity. There is a basement charm to this album that reminds me a bit of some of the Zambian treasures featured here on the Hearse, especially on the track "Satan." Sometimes albums like this can cause a mild panic in me, like how many balding insurance salesmen across the U.S. had amazing psych bands when they were in college that recorded something, but never got that deal they hoped for? What if we never hear that shit?

Always fun discovering these one album bands from 60s and 70s. Would make a great compilation (called "Destroyed by Crushing Effects of Reality") s

Drums and bass, especially on Satan, really tight. One of these bands an ass hair away from that big deal and opening for Mountain. Thanks for posting. matt

Blue falcon bubblegum boy bands sell millions. Sally Suckemsilly slurps in studio for a record deal. Guitar gun slingers right next door go unheralded, almost.

This amazing little known band is from Kansas City, MO. I believe the album was recorded there as well. Very rare. Treasure music like this and the blogs who make sure this music doesn't return to the black hole of obscurity from whence it came.
