After the release of Disposal early this year, Tiger Bay returns with another album by the UK psychedelic rock band The Deviants. The band’s debut album Ptooff! was released in 1967 on the label Underground Impresarios, and only available through a few selected head shops, and then re-printed by Decca Records in 1969.
Founded by legendary counter-culture figure Mick Farren and Russell Hunter and inspired by The Fugs, the band was the first of the anarchic groups to emerge from the Ladbroke Grove area of London. Two years before Hawkwind burst on to the underground scene, The Deviants were preaching revolution and creating their own form of musical anarchy.
The Tiger Bay edition restores the original panel fold-out poster cover with liner notes by John Peel.
