Calling all hippies. Dig out those loons and put some flowers in your hair. The sixties psychedelic revival starts here. Its time to get hold of some heavy duty acid, spark up that bonfire and turn on, tune in and drop out.

The Eighteenth Day Of May are kings of the new acid folk. Like Fairport Convention jamming with the Velvet Underground inside Timothy Leary's head, TEDOM will have you wishing you could lie down in the Woodstock mud.

If you're pining for the festival season, then you ought to have a listen. Full of nods to the Strawbs and Pentangle, this is the sound of sunny days and fields of beautiful people stoned off their margin on powerful hallucinogens.

With an indecipherable vocal, cutting Jimmy Page guitar licks and a cool folk-rock attitude, Cold Early Morning is the perfect antidote to these cold winter nights. TEDOM are undiluted summer sunshine.
