THE TRILLIUM – \”Queen Alice\” / \”News\” (Mr G Records G-813) June 1968
Obscure band from Rochester, New York. The Trillium were not even worth a mention in Fuzz, Acid & Flowers!!! The plug side \’Queen Alice\’ is a outstanding English style pop psych with 12 string guitar and compact organ. The tune is very catchy and memorable.
Vinyl only re-issue label Dig The Fuzz compiled this song on Incredible Sound Show Stories Volume 14 and they suggested a West Coast location for the band. That comp is long gone and out of print by the way.
The flip \’News\’ is another slice of Englishness. The singer sounding just like Ray Davies. It\’s a perfect Kinks like whimsical pop song. I really dig the echoey ending on this…cool production.
Both sides have writer credits of V.Bearce and T.Davis.
