Blue Cheer were the loudest, heaviest band of the 1960s. What they played and how they played it was labeled Heavy Metal – partly from a reference by the Beat writer William F. Burroughs and partly from a lyric in Steppenwolf’s Born To Be Wild (Heavy Metal Thunder . . .). It described them perfectly – and they ushered in a new age of searingly loud and upfront Rock which would quickly establish itself as the outer-fringe of Psychedelia. These three early demo tracks predate their debut album Vincebus Eruptum, and have more grind, guts, and grit than anything they've ever recorded! This one-sided EP on colored vinyl is the first ever vinyl release of this material.
