The more eagle-eyed among you will know that Powder, the mod-psychedelic maestros from San Mateo, California are over here for two live dates this July.
To celebrate these shows we are releasing a split 7" featuring one of each from Powder and the band's founding members Thomas & Richard Frost.
This is an incredibly small run of just 60 copies and comes in plain white bag (labels designed by John Hurford) and as we are giving 20 of these to the band, there are just 40 up for grabs ensuring this will probably be the rarest release we ever do!!
Powder - Spinning My Wheels
A recent recording by the modern incarnation of Powder, first released on the limited "No 2" CD EP of 2014.
Watch for their full length Cellophane Lane album coming soon. Great Move vibe to this folks!
Thomas & Richard Frost - It’s So Simple
When the original Powder group imploded towards the end of 1968, Rich Martin and his brother Tom rebranded themselves as the Frosts, trading the fire of Powder for a more thoughtful, introspective style.
It’s So Simple is a highlight from the acoustic demos that the brothers made in the Bay Area before relocating to Los Angeles and signing to Imperial Records. This has a beautiful summery vibe - real spirit of the late 60s West Coast!
In the vein of the Frosts 'Visualize' CD put out by Rev-ola/Cherry Red some years back.
