"In the late '60s, Pip Proud recorded two of the oddest records ever to come out of Australia -- Adreneline & Richard and A Bird in the Engine -- before vanishing into obscurity for the better part of three decades. Often called the 'Australian Syd Barrett,' Proud actually released his second album in 1969, a year prior to The Madcap Laughs, and developed his indigenous psychedelia in virtual isolation. To quote Byron Coley, who like a handful of underground luminaries discovered Proud in the '80s via collector mail-order lists, Adreneline & Richard features 'weirdly strummed barre-chord guitar, monotone vocals that occasionally [try] to pass way beyond their known range, oddball lyrics that [combine] nursery rhymes with druggy imagery. It [is] a hell of a cool record.' While other compilations of Proud's music have been released in recent years, this is the first time that Adreneline & Richard has been reissued in its original format (including inner sleeve with lyrics). Recommended for fans of outsider and lo-fi pop from the US, UK, New Zealand, and beyond."
