Color Me Psycho: "Black Corvair" (1987) and "What's Your Phobia?" (1988)


In addition to releasing a bunch of amazing records by Deja Voodoo, Montreal's Og Records made a massive contribution to our country's record output with its five It Came From Canada compilations. Our pals in Colour Me Psycho were included on two of those compilations, and we're presenting the tracks here (if you want to find the full albums, they're out there - and Google is your friend (this time around (maybe))).

"Black Corvair" appeared on the compilation It Came From Canada Volume 3, released on 12" vinyl by Og Music (OG13).
From the liner notes by Del Picasso:
Calgary's Color Me Psycho play sweaty 80s-style garage rock in the tradition of such great groups as UIC and the now-defunct Enigmas. Aleister Hex (vocals/guitar), Edgar Allan Crowe (bass/vocals), John Rodent (keyboards), and S.P. Larkin (drums) recorded "Black Corvair" at R&L Studios.

"What's Your Phobia?" appeared on the compilation It Came From Canada Volume 4, released on 12" vinyl by Og Music (OG17).
From the liner notes by Del Picasso:
COLOR ME PSYCHO are one of Calgary's rockin'est bands, with a tough, sweaty sound that borrows from the 60s, 70s, and 80s. They're working on an LP. Aleister Hex, vocal, guitar; Edgar Allan Crowe, bass, vocal; John Rodent, keyboard; S.P. Larkin, drums.

We believe that it's former Golden Calgarian Dan Hayes playing keys on these two tracks. But we might be wrong.

Og!
