“A genuine psychedelic classic from Pretty Things/Pink Fairies member Twink gets a worthy reissue with a recently rediscovered mono mix.” -Bandcamp New & Notable Sept 27 2017
Ripley Johnson (Moon Duo) on Think Pink:
"Twink was the drummer in the Pretty Things when they made SF Sorrow. This is the solo album he did directly after that with members of The Deviants, before they all went on to form the Pink Fairies. Think Pink is one of the great records of the original psychedelic era. It uses all those classic psychedelic effects, a lot of phase-shifting and panning, but to great effect. It sucks you in and messes with your head. It’s well-produced, but it’s weird. I don’t think it was recorded with any intent of being on the charts. Back then, it was harder to make a record. What’s great about a lot of the classic-era psychedelic records is that people got a chance to go into a studio, which was a big deal, and then they made something completely weird that had no chance of selling – but they did it anyway, which I think is really admirable. Twink was a genuine freak, he was living the radical lifestyle to the full."
"If you’ve broken on through to that other side, you’ve met John Adler. A key figure in the British psych movement of the late 60s and early 70s, Adler was a member of Tomorrow, The Pretty Things, Pink Fairies and Stars with Syd Barrett. It’s safe to say he exists on a different plain than us normal folk, but thankfully, he’s graced us with aural breadcrumbs along his journey to help us catch up.
His debut solo effort as Twink titled Think Pink is nothing short of remarkable. A hodge podge of experimental folk, acid rock, decadent incantations and mystical machinations, Twink is truly the psych head’s psych head. The odds of you finding a decent original copy for less than $300 is slim, so you’re in LUCK, traveller."
