Pink Fairies grew out of The Deviants, a loose-knit band formed in 1967 by members of the West London hippie commune in Ladbroke Grove. Consisting primarily of vocalist Mick Farren, guitarist Paul Rudolph, bassist Duncan Sanderson, and drummer Russell Hunter, the group also featured satellite members Marc Bolan, Steve Peregrine Took, and players from the band Group X, later rechristened Hawkwind. After a disastrous US tour, Farren was fired and the remaining Deviants returned to London, where they recruited vocalist and former Pretty Things drummer Twink (born John Alder), who suggested the name Pink Fairies.
Despite gaining a reputation for mythic debauchery, the group remained largely an underground sensation before signing to Polydor and releasing three albums. This was the first of them and features the original line-up.
This is a limited edition on pink vinyl to mark the 50th anniversary of its release – 500 copies only.
