A collection of songs recorded by a couple of British psychedelia obsessives from Louisiana during the mid-nineties. Damien Youth and Zane Armstrong working under the pseudonyms Julian Starr and Oliver Crumb set out, not to simply create music inspired by the sixties, but rather to become a sixties band. The idea evolved into a fully fledged "band" complete with back story, photos, and period recordings set between 1964 and 1970. The results were reasonably convincing, especially given that the songs were recorded on a 4-track cassette recorder with lousy guitars, a cheap keyboard, a pawn shop drum machine (AKA Biff), and a handful of effects pedals. Their mythological musical beast was finally unleashed on the world in 1999 when the UK/German label Twist Records issued "Walter Ghoul's Lavender Brigade ...Is Coming (A Retrospective)" in a limited edition of 500 LP's.
