Return of Son Of Gutbucket is a tribute to the Gutbucket compilations that used to be around in the UK in the 70’s, and it follows the same formula: exclusive tracks from some of the best current psychedelic bands that a certain scene (in this case the Canadian one) has to offer. Curated with aplomb by Cardinal Fuzz, and released on a random mix of different coloured vinyl (don’t ask us for a particular colour, we can’t offer any guarantees!)

7/10 Robin Staff review, 06 September 2017

Back in the 1970s there were these records called ‘Gutbucket’ and ‘Son of Gutbucket’ in which blues rockers on Liberty Records would be lovingly compiled. In a sordid tribute to those halcyon days doth ‘The Return of Son of Gutbucket’ appear on our scene, a gnarly compilation of unseemly psych rock from Cardinal Fuzz.

Actually it’s not all that gruesome: it opens on a howler of guitar scuzz from Anunnaki but from there the record sees artists take it in turns to be divergent in their approach to psychedelia. The dreamy krautrock of Backhomes sees their guitars pushed to the back as harmonicas and throbbing beats pick up the slack; Hawkeyes do a five minute rock epic based in barren guitar ruminations, eventually picking up and marching forward like the last song before time runs out on us.

Put it all together and it kinda makes you realise just how diverse the Canadian psych rock scene is, which is cool. Honestly, it is: Psychic Pollution do the whole kosmische synth grumble thing on the same record as Shooting Guns try to wriggle out of a locked groove by splashing noise on it. It’s a record that not only tells you these bands exist but also tells them apart for you. So helpful.
