DAVE'S DOORS OF PERCEPTION

Dave Door lives in South East London; his hair is lustrous and long; it is his antennas to receive cosmic energy from distant stars; his perception of the universe is profound, psychedelic and potent; an alternate realm of freakiness and fuzz. Dave believes that he is the drummer in a rock group; the loudest, baddest, mind-expanding, underground garage punk band that ever existed...Dave's Doors Of Perception.

Fronted by Blair Dean, a snarling Gibson welding song-smith whose calm Ivy League exterior is in conflict with his animal three-chord aggression and vocal vitriol.

Sitting behind a Vox Continental, it is not, as often claimed, the messiah, but Charli Doherty; Charli is too young to be the messiah, but he does possess unworldly skills in record production and can play any instrument yet to be created.

Rob Doherty is a mod, you can tell because he wears desert boots; he plays the bass, the most solid, pounding, gnarly, growling bass that it is possible for the human body to survive. 

The band have released three tracks to date on Well Suspect Records; Falling on Generation Mod, Sex Drugs and Armed Revolutionon Dirty Mod and Sound Of The Undergroundon Sweet & Sour Psych … and have now recorded their debut album, Apophenia. Dave's Doors Of Perception are irresistible, insatiable and unstoppable. 

'Dave's Doors Of Perception are The Castaways' bastard grandson.' Record Collector.

'Sound Of The Underground is a wholehearted grab from The Chocolate Watchband's pudding bowl'.Shindig.

Dave's Doors Of Perception - Shake Your Bones

Shake Your Bones is irresistibly catchy; conjuring a potent mix between The Doors, Nick Cave and The B52s; brooding, funny and atmospheric, it is a pop single of quality and a mission statement.

DIRTY MOD

Selected finds for filthy minds

The history of mod is sweat soaked and ear-splitting, limbs and microphones flaying; the loudest bands, the proudest; high-rise volume, distorted, disjointed, under the influence, pounding twelve bar, gritty rock and roll soul music that has influenced the groups on this compilation album; turn it up, jump, hump, shout and get busy ... to Dirty Mod! Featuring, the UKs finest garage rock bands, The Fallen Leaves, Dave's Doors Of Perception, and Eight Rounds Rapid. Parisian minxes, The Buns. Swivel hip rockers, Maker, and The Sons Of Mod. Grunge Blues hipsters, The Monkey Gland Blues Band, and The Get-Go. Enthusiastic youthful soul from Samuel Rogers and his band.

SWEET & SOUR PYSCH

a saucy blend of CONTEMPORary PSYCHEDELIA

This compilation features some of the best artist on the current psychedelic scene, and as the title suggests it's a broad kaleidoscopic church. Kicking off with an outrageous garage psych cover version of a Girls Aloud track by South London's Dave's Doors Of Perception, this is a trip that's varied, enthralling and potent. Girl groups of a less footballer-predatory nature also feature, Abjects are a young garage-punk girl trio; Novella (except for the drummer) are a more melodic girl band, also from London, and Nottingham based group, The Soundcarriers, include an intoxicating female vocal texture. A more typically sixties sound is provided by Miracle Glass Company, Chariots, and young guns on the scene, The Chessmen. Heavier tracks are care of The Oscillation and Psyence. Arguably the 'sweetest' number comes from Joel Gion, best known as a member of Brian Jonestown Massacre. The 'sourest', definitely the scariest, from Rex Speedway & The Fortune Tellers.

GENERATION MOD

A collection of tunes inspired by modernists

Generation Mod shows the genre in rude health, compiling new and recent mod-inspired bands with an eclectic and contemporary musical reach that will appeal to most mod tastes, soul, ska, beat and psych. Featuring: Dogtooth - Get In Get Out; they are only 13,14 and 16 years of age and they rock!  A band to watch. Dave's Doors of Perception; south London's nastiest noisiest garage psych band, make their Farfisa drenched debut with Falling. Motown legend, Martha Reeves, called Samuel S. Parkes "the genuine spirit of Northern Soul," Samuel opens side one with Let Me Go. Dirty rock slags, The Get Go, turn their attentions to the Ike and Tina Turner classic, Nutbush City Limits. Italy's finest, The Mads,offer the melodic stomper What I Need. French Boutik, reinvent the torch song with Mieux Comme Ca. Men Of North Country get extra Northern with They Don't Know.
