Record Store Day Release: Funky UK Psych From Ugly Custard

If you’re anything like us, you’re a big fan of Record Store Day. Now in it’s fifth year, the April date is a special time to get all sorts of exclusive, vinyl-only, limited-edition stuff that record geeks sweat over. Last year we offered a 500-run 7″ single from Dennis Coffey, featuring an exclusive Steinski remix.

This year, we’re serving up a full album worth of heavy psychedelic funk, in the form of the rare self-titled Ugly Custard LP. Originally released in 1971, the album has become a cult classic among vinyl diggers – a dense, heavy, psyched-out set from a short-lived side project put together by UK library and film music composer, Alan Parker (of KPM 1000 series fame). It also includes work from ace session players Herbie Flowers (bass) and Roger Coulam (organ) & Clem Cattini.

Check out the amazing “Custard’s Last Stand” for a taste, and look for the limited edition vinyl at participating stores on April 21st.
