Album Review: The Pink Fairies’ Resident Reptiles–Release date August 24, 2018–Label: Purple Pyramid Records

The Pink Fairies – Resident Reptiles (2018) The Fairies have been around in one form or another since 1970 growing out of the Ladbroke Grove band The Deviants. Some hippies have gone soft and useless over the years but not The Fairies. Their music is alive with a vitality that few bands have especially after so many years. Founding member Paul Rudolph is joined by bassist Alan Davey and original Motörhead drummer Lucas Fox with Pink Fairies/Motörhead member Larry Wallis there in spirit as they cranked out his “Old Enough To Know Better” tune.

“Apologize” reminds me of vintage 70’s Hawkwind. Yet another British band that shared members with The Fairies The only thing missing is the saxophone which Hawkwind used on a number of their tunes. One could also hear “Lone Wolf” being played by Motörhead.

This is the way real rock ‘n’ roll was meant to be played…amps on 10 and balls-to-the wall rock seeping from every pore! Checkout the tracks “Mirage”, “Whipping Boy” and “Monkey Chatter” to feel the fire burning in these tracks. Garage psychedelia at it’s best!

I grew up in a house full of music, and took piano lessons for two years. Took up violin in Junior High. I played in the school orchestra for a short time. Got my Mother to buy an electric guitar in 10th grade, and in 12th grade formed my first band Bite. I played in a number of original music bands (The Look, The Shades, Perfect Strangers, The Petal Pushers and The Lears (in Orlando). The Shades had a 45 released in 1980, The Lears had numerous releases throughout the world including a CD on Get Hip Records in 2000. I put out my own punk fanzine called Useless Information from 1977 - 1980. A total of 4 issues. I also did a garage/pop & psychedelic magazine called Kaleidoscope from 1986 - 1991. Again, for a total of 4 issues. The first two with flexi discs and the last two with compilation albums with unreleased tracks by bands talked about in that issue. I also released an album of 60's Italian garage/pop & psychedelia, and wrote a column "DD's Garage" for Bucketfull of Brains magazine in England for 12 years.

  1. Great album, but isn’t “Lone Wolf” just a little too similar to “Love Punks” from “No Picture”?
    It’s almost the same song, but with different lyrics.
