"What A Bunch Of Sweeties" by Pink Fairies
Pink Fairies "What A Bunch Of Sweeties" 1972 (UK)
Simply put, the Pink Fairies were the missing link between the hippies and the punks. Though little known in the USA (at least before the Internet), the Pinks' deafeningly loose jamrock achieved a certain notoriety on the festival circuit in Britain. They often played with Hawkwind (sometimes jamming together as "Pinkwind.") The Fairies were founded by a fellow called Twink (formerly of Tomorrow, The Aquarian Age and The Pretty Things), though he departed after their first single and album. Which left Canadian-born guitarist Paul Rudolph in charge for this, their second LP (along with the redoubtable rhythm section of Russell Hunter & Sandy Sanderson, formerly of Mick Farren's Deviants.)
