[News] Guerssen Records to release the Heavy Psych Holy Grail “Sussex” by Bent Wind

One of the Holy Grails of Heavy Psychedelia, originally released in 1969 by this Canadian band.

Basement Garage Psych meets Heavy Rock! Echoing vocals, crashing drums, ultra-raw distorted guitar…

Bent Wind formed in Toronto in 1969. Discovered by producer Merv Buchanan while they played at a 12-hour Pop Festival in York, he signed them to his Trend Label. A single was soon released, followed by the β€œSussex” album in 1969. Titled after the street where the band had a rehearsal space in a building where local hippies and freaks hang out, β€œSussex” was released housed in a cover designed by guitar player Gerry Ribas. According to band member Marty Roth, no more than 200 copies were pressed, making one the most sought after Psych albums ever.
