KALEIDOSCOPE

Kaleidoscope were an English psychedelic rock band that were active between 1967 and 1968. The band's songs were combining the elements of psychedelia with remarkable lyrics. Having performed since 1963 under the name The Sidekicks, they became The Key in November 1965, before settling upon the name Kaleidoscope when they signed a deal with Fontana Records in January 1967. While the group did not achieve commercial success in its time, it retains a loyal fan-base and its recordings are remembered in high regard. The band's first single "Flight from Ashiya" was released in 1967 by Fontana Records, a little earlier than the band's first album Tangerine Dream. The song was telling about an impending plane crash. The single got quite an amount of radio airplay but failed to reach the charts. After the release of the first Album, the band were aired performing live on several BBC radio shows. A new single was released in 1968 called "Jenny Artichoke" that was inspired by Donovan's, "Jennifer Juniper". The band traveled around Europe, and when in Netherlands supported Country Joe and the Fish. After the failure of Faintly Blowing in 1969, they released two more singles which were songs by other writers and, after a radio session in BBC Maida Vale Studios, the band never again appeared as Kaleidoscope. In 2003, the independent record label Circle released the Kaleidoscope and Fairfield Parlour's 1967 to 1971 BBC radio sessions recordings in an album called Please Listen To The Pictures.
