Originally issued as a 12″ mini-album in 1986, Tyrnaround’s Colour Your Mind has become a touchstone of 1980s neo-psychedelia and almost certainly one of the best records of the second psychedelic era. Influenced by classic ’60s British psychedelia, it was also inspired by The Dukes of Stratosphear’s “25-O-Clock” and perhaps exceeds that record’s trip factor with the acid-infused title track — featured on Amorphous Androgynous Wizards of Oz compilation, and also famously covered by Vibravoid — blending searing acid fuzz guitar, swirling keyboards, surreal lyrics, and sumptuous early Floyd-like harmonies. Now expanded to a full-length LP, including all the bands singles as well as the rare Freakbeat Magazine 45 “Paragon-Smythe” (featuring the never released before unedited version), this could be seen as Tyrnaround’s perfect debut album. Trippy ’60s-styled psychedelia from Australia. Comes in ’60s UK styled backflaps sleeve; includes insert with unseen photos and a full history of the band by Richard Allen (Freakbeat, Delerium, Shindig!); Includes download card which includes rare demo and live tracks.
