Information/Write-up

"Our crazed chainsaw-fuzz lumberjacks from Maritimes up north return to consider the detrimental effects that 76 trips to Lysergia has had on their ability to maintain normal relationships. As Hendrixy guitars howl away, a slobbering, obviously quaaluded vocalist laments that all he sees is faded colours. Maybe some STP could set him back on track". That is how this single is described on the Psychedelic Experience Comp Vol. 4., released on Mystic Records back in 2000.

Little is known of the Stonemen. What is know is that they were from Moncton, New Brunswick and that this, their lone single, "In the Evening b/w Faded Colors" is amongst the most desirable Canadian garage fuzz freak music artifacts on the planet. This single recently changed hands for a cool $4,000.00, making this single the second most valuable Canadian single of all-time, just behind The Fringe's "Canada's Next Number One Recording Group" promo.
