The Orange Alabaster Mushroom - Space and Time: A Compendium of the Orange Alabaster Mushroom (2001)
The Orange Alabaster Mushroom are:
Greg "Grog" Watson - vocals, guitar, organ
Gord Mylks - guitar, vocals
Mark "Fuzzy" Fraser - drums
Ryan Bol - organ, vocals, guitar
Andy Shurvell - bass
Influences: The Pink Floyd, Syd Barrett, Pretty Things, Soft Boys, Robyn Hitchcock, Electric Prunes, Byrds, Chocolate Watch Band, Dukes of Stratosphear, Kaleidoscope, Move, Tomorrow, 13th Floor Elevators, Love, Monkees, Rolling Stones, Them, July, Kinks, Zombies, Smoke, Status Quo, Bee Gees, Beatles, Donovan
It's hard to believe this acid psychedelic pop (very much Barrett-like, only noisier) was recorded in 90s in Canada, not in late 60's Great Britain. Though there are quite a few people in the band, as you can see above, many sources still list The Orange Alabaster Mushroom as Greg Watson's one-man band. "Space and Time" is a collection of songs, recorded between 1991 and 1998. Production is rather lo-fi, which only suits this kind of music. Enjoy!
