RARE BEAT - GARAGE ROCK AND PSYCHEDELIC
THE BLOSSOM TOES
Records are not for sale - For your viewing pleasure only

The beginnings of the Blossom Toes go as far back as to 1962, when Brian Godding and Brian Belshaw met as apprentices at the Hilger and Watts scientific instrument factory at Highbury, Islington. There they formed a group called The Grave Diggers and eventually played in The Ingoes, a R&B outfit. As The Ingoes, they teamed up with The Yardbirds manager Giorgio Gomelsky and went to Paris where they developed a strong cult following. Right after their London return, drummer Colin Martin, left and was replaced by Kevin Westlake. It was around this time that they became Blossom Toes. They were then housed in a flat in Fulham by manager Giorgio Gomelsky and entered the studio to record their debut album. The backing of much of the album was recorded by an orchestra and session men. The album was a 15 track collection of inventive psych pop with it's share of weirdness. Unfortunately, their live act suffered due to the inability to reproduce most of the album on stage.
