Look Blue Go Purple - Still Bewitched
Look Blue Go Purple were Kathy Bull, Norma O'Malley, Denise Roughan, Kath Webster, and Lesley Paris. While they fit in well with their fellow labelmates Straightjacket Fits, Abel Tasmans and Doublehappys, they crafted their own distinctive style and sound. Their versatility ranged from punk-edged rockers to the more rural border of folk rock, with psychedelia and a bit of baroque in between. The vocals and jangling guitars were magical, and the rhythm section was incredible. Without a doubt, this band deserves exposure to new ears.
Flying Nun Records has combined all three previously released EPs, plus several previously unreleased live recordings of songs, in a reissue package titled Still Bewitched. Now everyone can have "Cactus Cat" and all the other LBGP songs in one convenient package. The album is available now on vinyl (2XLP), CD and digital formats from Flying Nun Records and Omnian Music Group.
