Following on from our re-issue last year of the three albums released by The Pink Fairies on Universal, we bring you this 3CD collection courtesy of Andy Colquhoun who joined the Fairies on guitar and vocals for their 1987 album Kill ‘Em And Eat ‘Em. First off we have a live recording of The Pink Fairies – Chinese Cowboys – taken from two dates on their 1987 tour, one in Leeds, the other at Long Marston Speedway. Then we have Dr. Crow by The Pink Fairies’ forerunner The Deviants featuring Mick Farren and Andy Colquhoun. And finally Andy Colquhoun’s later solo outing Pick Up The Phone America. Though the whole Deviants/ Fairies ramshackle, often dysfunctional circus amounted to a mere footnote in the broader history of Brit rock and roll, it was an entertaining and frequently thrilling ride. This top value set righteously celebrates the Fairies and their Deviant family.
