This is the first of two DROPs I would like to give you in connection with Monday's radioprogram. The second one is No. 39, and both are decidedly psychedelic. This band is called The Hangman's Beautiful Daughters, a name they got from an Incredible String Band album. Naturally, Dan Treacy signed them to his then re-baptised Dreamworld label. He plays some keyboards on the 1987 Trash Mantra mini-album, it says on the back. This is the opening track with jangly 12-string guitar and wild vocals. There's also a great cover of Shadows of Knights' "Darkside" if you're interested.
