The Smoke - High In A Room

So, a classic of British psychedelia about the joys of home grown, it's going to be a killer cut, right? Of course bloody not. High In A Room has a ramshackle 1960s quaintness though that perhaps is better suited to its subject. If you want to normalise cannabis you're not going to do it by scaring off the normies. No, you need to leave that job to four cheeky laddies from Yorkshire with a penchant for naff jokes, and whose take on psychedelia was only half a step away from beat music.

Mind you, do remember that this was a time when heavy fringes and big haircuts were signifiers of the imminent collapse of society, so maybe not. Can't dislike this though.

A groovy mess.
