STUPENDOUS THANKS to Liverpool-by-way-of-Sheffield musician Rick Corcoran for generously sharing his demos, outtakes, and fair-haired musical stepchildren (& even creating artwork for many of 'em). On account of Rick's stunning psych-pop masterworks, Orgone Box really should be a household name for folks who read this blog. Now then, Rick: will you PLEASE get on with it and release your next proper album (The Lorne Park Tapes LP notwithstanding)? The fans are waiting, kind sir...

  1. psssst: don't forget this set of rarities....

    Green Tambourines Demos & OB Miscellany

    Before forming Orgone Box, Rick Corcoran was in the bands Green Tambourines and Orange, for which he wrote and recorded a good handful of songs — some of which were re-worked for Orgone Box.

    Green Tambourines Demos (c. late 1980s to early 1990s)
    01 Disposable (demo)
    02 Beat Generation (demo)
    03 My Reply (demo)
    04 Retro Sexual Lad (demo)
    05 Hard for Me (demo)
    06 Repro Freak Show (demo)

    Orange / Orgone Box – An OB Miscellany (stuff left off Various Imperfectshuns)
    07 Your Paranoia (Orange)
    08 Mirrorball (When I Want to Feel) [alt. edit - longer intro + outro]
    09 After the Gold Rush (N. Young cover - Maria Callaghan vocal)
    10 CENTAUR (promo mix for album reissue, 2014)

    HUMONGOUS THANKS to Rick Corcoran for releasing many of his odds & sods tracks over the years, and to Mick for compiling the Green Tambourines tracks (Mick also did the ‘Judy Over the Rainbow Plus’ compilation artwork).

    NOTE: Mick’s artwork suggests the presence of several officially-released tracks, but they do not appear here due to my policy of sharing only ROIOs. Happy hunting!
