Staircase To NowhereRUBBLE TWELVE : Staircase To Nowhere

"We found the truth in the flowering tree, in the long lost depths of Glastonbury"

Volume 12. Originally issued in 1986 on the Bam-Caruso label (KIRI 070). It has since been re-issued on Past & Present (PAPRL 012). Contained recordings from the Deram label

Bulldog Breed
'Portcullis Gate' kicks off Rubble Twelve, if you want to hear the flip, Halo In My Head, you'll have to go and search for the Deram Dayze compilation. Their album 'Made In England' is worth investigating, check it out
Virgin Sleep
'Secret' was the groups second and last single (their first, 'Love' was based on the Buddhist chant, 'Om Mane Padme Hum'). Worth checking out, shame they never recorded further
Tintern Abbey
Both sides of their (only) classic single are featured here, no more introductions should be needed
23rd Turnoff
Named after the 23rd turnoff the M6, as stated on the Deram page. The flip was compiled on the British Psychedelic Trip vol.1
Human Instinct
Two songs are featured here, 'A Day In My Minds Mind' is an absolute classic and 'Pink Dawn' was the B-side to a cover of The Byrds, 'Renaissance Fair'. The band later returned to their roots in New Zealand to record a series of albums
East of Eden
More of a progressive mood here, 'Northern Hemisphere' was the groups second single and first for Deram. The group went on to record a series of albums for Deram and Harvest
World of Oz
Birmingham band who recorded three singles and an album for Deram, the track chosen here, 'Peter's Birthday (Black & White Rainbows)' was the flip of their first single 'The Muffin Man'. Surprisingly, the track was omitted for the groups only (self titled) album
Denny Laine
'Catherine's Wheel' was the flip to the second Deram single, 'Too Much In Love'. The "Deram Dayze" compilation is worth purchasing as it also includes the first Deram single, 'Say You Don't Mind'
'Gone Is The Sad Man' finds Timebox at their most psychedelic. This was the flip of the groups fifth single, 'Girl Don't Make Me Wait'. Check out theTimebox compilation, "The Deram Anthology" for loads of superb tracks
Another one-off obscure single on the Deram label, the track in question here is the flip, 'Glastonbury'
The Outer Limits
Leeds band who recorded four singles for four labels (if you include a charity one-sided single), another flip, 'Help Me Please' is the bands recording on this album
Warm Sounds
This is more like it!! Here you'll find both sides of the groups final single edited together as originally intended. Total mayhem with backwards effects, a pop-psych dream
