Chocolate Watchband 'Are You Gonna Be There (At The Love-In)'

Well are you? Or were you? More west coast psych/garage rock fare from the preposterously named Chocolate Watchband, which can't help but stir memories of Spinal Tap during their Flower People phase. CW's 'No Way Out' album is full of good flavours though - lots of bluesy psychedelia in songs like 'Milk Cow Blues' and 'Gone And Passes By'. The mind boggles as to the scenes that might've taken place at the 'love-in' - there's probably reams of footage of it on a super-8 camera in the attic of a hippie-turned-goat farmer in Cornwall somewhere.
