Shindig! Magazine has been peddling psych and fuzz for years. They love psychedelic music and weird beat music and they've lovingly created a second annual which focuses on the loads of cool bands and gives you loads of dope pictures to dribble over. Annual No.2 is the best bits from the mag... and maybe some new bits. Well, in the pages is a load of great pieces (and, in addition, ace artwork from SFA cohort, Pete Fowler) on bands like Moby Grape, Pre T-Rex Bolan riffs, West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, The Sonics, The Charlatans (no, the old guys who did the wondrous Codeine... and, if you don't know much about the group, it's an article that'll flip your wig clean off your dome!) and a great piece on The Dukes Of Stratosphear (who were, effectively, XTC in disguise, making a brilliantly authentic Britsike after getting stuck in the dressing up box). There's also a cool timeline of the SanFran psych scene which covers all the greats and also-rans. It really is a cracking read for the muso-nerd. --Electric Roulette

Johnny Black timelines San Francisco 1965-67 with eyewitness accounts, uber fan Tim Forster traces the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band's highs and lows over 22 pages, Dukes Of Stratosphear pick their fave UK psych singles (Yardbirds, Pink Floyd and Traffic 45s a must) and the US Charlatans talk strip clubs and throwing ashtrays at punters. This second compendium from the Shindig! stable, ornamented with rare pics of cult heroes and psych poster reprints, is every bit as fab as the first. Also out, Shindig! Psychotic Reaction: The US '60s Garage Explosion with exhaustive features on The Sonics, The Standells, Count Five and more. --Mojo Magazine

Shindig Annual No.2 is really good, tells you everything you need to know about the San Francisco scene in that period. It's an attractive looking book with great photos, I would recommend it. --BBC Radio Merseyside
