25. TYRNAROUND - 'Want Of A Rhyme' / 'Hello Or Goodbye' (Polyester LUV 5) 1987
This is an essential 45 if you're into psychedelia. The Tyrnaround were from Australia and formed in 1985. Both of these tracks were recorded in 1986 but not released until the following year.
'Want Of A Rhyme' is easy on the ear pop psych, but the killer on this disc is the adventurous B-Side 'Hello Or Goodbye'....This one really recaptures Syd Barrett and the acid era Beatles perfectly. All the elements are present and the trippy time changes especially elevate the song to beautiful highs.
