SKEPTICS: Open Sea: 10”

More scrawly psych/garage from a French outfit I’ve always suspected of being soft on Surrealistic Pillow. I prefer the faster-paced, punker stuff like “StoneCity” to the slower, heavier numbers like “T.V. Wizard,” but I haven’t taken acid since 1990 so consider the source. BEST SONG: “Hole in the Ground” BEST SONG TITLE: “Mole People” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: The matrix number “037” has the little cross-bar in the “7.”
