“The Snake” – The Pink Fairies


More wonderfully nasty early 1970s punk rock … this time from England. Like the Stooges and the MC5 in America during the same era, the Pink Fairies were laying waste to the “good vibes” of other counterculture bands of the era and defining what would eventually be called punk rock many years later. “The Snake” sounds like Jim Morrison fronting the Stooges … but it’s actually so much better than that if you can believe it.
