Skyeros - "Skyeros" {USA} [1975] Prog/Psych

Here's an album that's somewhat coveted by collector's of the underground American scene. These guys were from Missouri and released this one rare private press LP before disappearing into total obscurity. It's become quite expensive over the years, probably due to being mentioned in collector books like Acid Archives, the Pokora guides, etc (also, it has a great trippy cover). I'm not so sure the hype is really warranted, but it's definitely not a bad listen. Quite melodic, guitar-fronted prog/psych with a very "rural rock" feel, which was very common for underground US groups at the time. by Fusionaut

Hi, imagine my delight when I received a note on facebook from my cousin that he had found this about my brother's band! Bill Sikes is my brother, but I'm sorry to say he passed away several years ago. He was an awesome brother and loved playing music more than food! Bill took his music so seriously. He loved this band and wanted to be heard! He would have loved this.

John Danieley will be laid to rest tomorrow. He made an impact on a lot of people as a social worker. Many who knew him did not know John the "rocker" heard on this album.
