The Day After The Sabbath Vol 85: Demons Fairies & Wailin’ Guitars Posted Online

Posted on Sunday, March 10th, 2013

The Day After The Sabbath is a blog specialising in regular compilations of obscure heavy 60s and 70s rock. It’s Rich’ aim to reveal the secret world of bands that were inspired by the early psychedelic, doom and hard rock greats but were too short-lived, un-commercial or just plain unlucky to the gain the recognition that they probably deserved at the time. Download Vol 85: Demons Fairies & Wailin’ Guitars HERE.

TDATS85

“TDATS 85 is inspired by a book, written by Ra’anan Chelled who lives in Tel Aviv, Israel. ‘Demons Fairies & Wailin Guitars: The best 100 obscured rock acts 1968-1976‘ is a compendium of 100 of his favourite lesser-known acts from the 60s and 70s, that he has translated from his original Hebrew version. If you are interested further after reading this post, Ra’anan can be contacted directly via email: [email protected] or facebook to order the paperback. He also has e-reader versions on Amazon and a website is in progress.

The tracks I have used in this volume are from 15 bands that I have not used before and was not familiar with until reading about them in the book, so it’s been a great digging session for me that has resulted in a nice fresh batch of killer tunes for you guys! There are a few publications available now that cover a lot of the artists that he does, but what sets this book apart is the amount of detail he has gone into for each act. Clearly a labour of love, he often lucidly describes a record song-by-song, and uncovers previously unknown facts, acquired by Ra’anan himself directly from the artists or people closely connected, a lot of the new information comes from exclusive interviews, which most of the articles end with. They are all well-decorated with colour photos of LPs and artists.

The book covers the full range, from relatively well known entries like Budgie, Leaf Hound and Captain Beyond, to ultra-obscurities that were new to me like The Plastic Cloud, The Wizards From Kansas and J. Rider. An awesome discovery I have just made is that Ra’anan was inspired by one particular conversation thread on the now dead forum site Stonerrock.com; exactly the same thread that I found, and used, to begin my researches back in the mid 2000s. It was called ‘Vote: greatest obscure heavy albums‘ and just after SR.com died I recovered most of the thread from web caches, posting it all on TheObelisk.net here.” Continue reading

“All my previous compilations from can be found at my BLOG and I’m sure any of you who are intrigued by the more obscure history of heavy rock will find a lot of great surprises” –Rich / The Day After The Sabbath.
