Shadoks Music present a reissue of Rush Job (1971) from Fusion Farm. After many years of trying to locate the band to properly reissue Rush Job, a daughter of one of the band members coincidentally found Shadoks through social media. The album was originally was very limited release on the S.R.T label with a hand-sprayed cover (very much like the original Tony Caro & John). Originals are very rare with fetching high prices on the collectors market. This reissue includes tracks from the rare single "Fat Judy/Gypsy Mountain Woman". Fusion Farm got radio play and played a lot of shows in London and the surrounding cities before heading off to Europe to gig constantly. Germany became a second home, in particular Frankfurt and Munich and they found favor playing at many US Army air bases. Fusion Farm played the 15,000 capacity Frankfurt Festhalle supporting Bad Company and Black Oak Arkansas - this show is infamous because Black Oak Arkansas never showed up and a riot ensued, leaving the venue trashed. The band changed personnel several times but the core of the band and song-writing team of Bob Bett and Normal Ley remained constant. The band split in 1979 to pursue other projects. Rush Job includes snotty, Stooges-like psych tracks, with great guitars, drums, cool vocals and bass. Some tracks are dreamy and some are very powerful British underground tunes. Comes in a heavy sleeve and includes a two-page insert. 180 gram vinyl. Edition of 500 (numbered).
