Crystalline (also known as Axe) hailed from Northampton (home also of their mates Dark of “Dark Round The Edges” fame) and they were responsible for one of the holy grails of UK heavy-psych: a demo acetate of which only 12 copies were pressed back in 1970. Long tracks full of raw, fuzzed-out guitars – courtesy of Tony Barford – and dreamy female vocals by Vivienne Jones. Four original songs plus a psyched-out cover of Love’s “A House Is Not A Motel”. Impossible to find in its original form, here’s a straight reissue.
