The Acid Drops 7" (1988, Fungus)

Given their moniker, not to mention the swirly flower-thingys adorning the sleeve, it would be hard not to get the impression that The Acid Drops weren't steeped in Nuggets-esque psychedelia.  Granted that's largely the case, this British troupe were also attuned to what their Rickenbacker-friendly contemporaries were up to, particularly the Soup Dragons and Mighty Lemon Drops.  "She Laughed Out Loud" sports no shortage of fuzzy, garage-induced moxie, but it's flip "Deep Sea Dream" would have been a shoo-in for the fabled C86 compilation (about to see reissue btw), had the Drops been invited two years prior.  Capping things off is "Rush," a surfy but unremarkable instrumental.

A. She Laughed Out Loud
B1. Deep Sea Dream
B2. Rush

Hey there…I was hoping you would be able to accommodate me with something that was apparently posted on the now-defunct 'Vinyl Obscurity' blog a while back…if you have a copy of 'Seven Songs' by Current Rage, that would be simply swell! And good luck with your hosting problems…I didn't know Zippyshare deleted after 30 days too…what a pain in the doopah!

Actually, I did download that one Patrick, so you're in luck. Watch this space for the link. Should be able to get it up shortly.

Thanks so much! What I would do to actually be able to physically/visually check out your music collection…well, I can dream...

Yeah, I have more music than a lot of record stores I know. Thanks for the request.

shame none of the links work. I was a big Drops fan back in the 80s, used to go see them regularly and then got invited back to houses afterward for parties where they were 'the stars'. I did buy this 45 from Scorpion Records and have it somewhere - I cut She Laughed Out Loud via a USB record player years back but didn't cut the B sides. Be good if this could be re-upped one day?
