Those Shocking Shaking Days: Indonesian Hard, Psychedelic, Progressive Rock and Funk 1970-1978
Critical Mass
Release Date: March 8, 2011
Label: Now-Again

by Andrew Hultkrans

The frontman for psych-rock eccentrics Panbers opens this revelatory compilation by singing, "I like Beatles songs / I love Rolling Stones / I love Led Zeppelin." Suffering under a brutal dictatorship, bands in '70s Indonesia also took refuge in James Brown, Grand Funk Railroad, and the Incredible String Band. If I thought it were possible, I'd even say they were fans of Brazil's Os Mutantes, both for their far-flung musical influences and politically rebellious spirit.
