3. Radar Love...
We take great pleasure in announcing a new writer to pOoTers pSycheDelic shAcK........
Doctor Dark
A mysterious dweller of the shadows and known ally to the Dark Side. Doctor Dark’s immense knowledge of Krautrock and West Coast Acid Rock, along with his love of Classic Psychedelia and Progressive Rock more than qualifies him for his prolific outpourings in the Bands Index where he delivers a constant stream of reviews of classic albums.
Also known as Pooterland’s leading authority on Bat Chain Pullers and Kandy Korn.
Look out for his work elsewhere on the site because he has broken out of the album reviews room we had him locked up in and he is now running amok.....
He was spotted recently amongst the dark shadows deep in Pooterland so who knows where he will strike next....!!!

It is a great honour to have him aboard and I'm sure you will join me in wishing him a Long Strange Trip at Pooterland.
4. Pooterland's Featured Book
We Gotta Go Now - Dennis A. Blackledge
Windholme Press
This exciting new book - We Gotta Go Now is a backstage look at a talented, over the top, self-destructive rock 'n roll band, crashing forward without direction yet nearly pulling off the big one.
Set against a backdrop of small-town America, the mu$ic industry, and the turbulent sixties, We Gotta Go Now chronicles (1964 to 1967) the performance life and times of The Mojo Hands - a group of southern New England rockers who drew inspiration from the Blues, early British Invasion, Stax/Volt Soul, and pre-Elvis Rock 'n Roll, creating something completely new, completely theirs.
With primitive equipment set on ten, personality for days, and the flight plan of the bumblebee, these Blues Punks became a regional sensation. From the family garage, they rose through the ranks of the club scene and on to the concert hall stage, sharing the bill with, and ultimately blowing away many of the top acts of the day. Edgy performances both on and off stage led those in the know to label the band --
"A promoters' wet dream and worst nightmare, all rolled--up into one untidy package"

Please check out our Literature page for details of how to order this book

Many of you have, and still continue to send in all sorts of material such as Album reviews, Top Tens, Band Info, Lightshow details and other cool things like comic books, Pez Dispensers, Novels and Fridge Magnets!!
We have made a lot of friends along the way and have interviewed many bands and people from the Psych scene.
We would also like to thank all the record labels that have submitted Vinyl and CD's to us over the last 12 months for review, we have been honoured to spread the word about the many new and exciting psych bands from all around the world.

Thank you to all the people who we have traded with over the last 12 months, together we have shared and swapped some mind blowing music.

pOoTer would like to extend a special thanks to the Pooterland Crew, who have contributed hours and hours of their free time to help with editing and writing articles for this website.
