28th Day - S/T (LP, vinyl rip). 1985.

   Excellent San Fransisco neo-psychedelic classic from Barbara Manning's first band. Most of the songs are written by Cole Marquis, another popular figure of West Coast's  indie rock scene.

   It's the post-Paisley Underground era and 28th Day gives us one true psychedelic diamond with songs that combine dizzy guitars, melodic vocals and a powerfull rythm base.
Some of the songs here are all time classics. Just listen  to "This Train", "I'm only asking" or "Pages turn" and get lost in the hallucinogenic psychedelic world of 28th Day!

"This is one of those albums that did absolutely nothing upon its release but has developed a certain cult cachet over the years...
songs like the ruminative "Pages Turn" and the swirling, neurotic "25 Pills" suggest that Chico, CA, was the one city in the Northern Hemisphere that was attuned to the Krautrock-inspired art pop of New Zealand's Flying Nun label.
 The album's high point is the tense, strangled "Burnsite," a Manning song that climaxes in one of the most anguished screams this side of Joy Division's "Unknown Pleasures". 28th Day broke up shortly after the release of this album." (from allmusic)

This is one of the records i grown up with and it was a great company for many many strange hours...

Take it here
