Out-Sider present a reissue of Christopher's self-titled album, originally released in 1970. The only fully-authorized vinyl reissue of Christopher in the current market. Christopher were an underground acid rock trio featuring future Josefus drummer, Doug Tull. They evolved from United Gas, a psychedelic band from Houston who rubbed shoulders with legends like The 13th Floor Elevators and Moving Sidewalks. After relocating to Los Angeles -- where they changed his name to Christopher -- they played at numerous biker parties and recorded their sole album in 1970 for the Metromedia label. It's an amazing example of West Coast psychedelia/acid-rock featuring strong fuzz-wah guitar, great compositions and superb musicianship. It was housed in a terrific cover depicting the band at the same hippie crash-pad where some scenes from the The Trip movie was filmed. One of the holy grails of American psychedelic-rock and the rarest album originally released by the collectable Metromedia label. Remastered sound. Original artwork. Includes insert with liner notes. "One of the better LPs in the crowded sub-genre of proto-heavy west coast hippie rock, with mid-period Airplane and Cream the obvious influences. The lyrics are memorable strange" --Patrick Lundborg (Acid Archives). "A great 'lost' album from the USA underground, one that grows and grows with repeated listens. Lots of vibrato guitar riffs and creepy vocals a la Frumious Bandersnatch or Framework" --Clark Faville. Hard cardboard sleeve; obi.
