Editors’ Notes

The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band weaved a strange array of styles into its albums; some songs were surprisingly straightforward while others were as weird and "experimental" as the last part of its name suggested. Fans of fantastic stereo effects and '60s guitar tones will surely thrill at the sounds contained herein. "In the Arena" opens with a mix of spoken word and cool guitar riffs. "Suppose They Give a War and No One Comes" seems contrived for the era, but at this point in time it plays as a freaky and enjoyable novelty. "Smell of Incense" settles down for a gorgeous folk-psych-pop track. "Queen Nymphet" is mellow and harmonious enough to pass on the surface as a track by The Association, until one listens to the deliberately subversive lyrics. The album's a pleasure from end to end, as long as you're willing to immerse yourself in the weirdness of the psychedelic era. This edition of the album includes the mono single mixes and edits of "Smell of Incense" and "Unfree Child." 

Customer Reviews

Suppose They Give a War?

This album is fantastic. I lo9ve the first four songs especially In The Arena, Suppose they give a war, Buddha, and Smell of Incense, which is one of their best songs. This is a must have album for anyone who wants music to move them to another dimension. Well see you there.

cool chill music...

really cool psychedelic music to just hang out and listen too, a great album i reccomend buying it

WCPAEB IV was over by the time they released this mess…

Vol. 3 was this band at its best. That album may have only a couple of disposable cuts.

Because you may find only two or three songs that you enjoy on this album, be sure to preview all the songs and purchase the ones you will still be listening to until you lose your taste for music, especially that music from this well-documented era of protest, terror,, spying, assassinations. governmental horrors that pale only against what came to follow, AND history's most creative and resonant music to date. Few short musical bursts of genius precede this one's; sadly nothing has come since, at least not yet. Three stars are for a sad wave goodbye.

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s

One of the more offbeat acts to emerge during the psychedelic era, the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band were certainly eclectic and ambitious enough to live up to their slightly clumsy moniker, capable of jumping from graceful folk-rock to wailing guitar freakouts to atonal, multilayered, avant-garde compositions at a moment's notice, but they also reflected a strongly divided creative...
