THE FLOWER CHILDREN - 'Mini-Skirt Blues'/'Marching Lovers' (Castil Records 101) March 1967
With a group name like The Flower Children one would expect 'Mini-Skirt Blues' to be soft flower pop with perhaps male/female harmonies. WRONG; these Flower Children, led by Simon Stokes have a punked up protest anthem on their hands, heavy on the organ, making the whole sonic concoction sound very Seeds like.
Mr Stokes has got his mini-skirt blues real bad. He's almost spitting out the words in this rant. The flip 'Marching Lovers' is more Sunset Strip groove with dumb lyrics and spooky organ.
The 45 also got a release on Allied Records. My copy on Castil Records shows 6 March 1967 stamped on the label. March '67 may not have been the release date but it shows the record was clearly doing the rounds as early as this.
