Brown Acid is a series of excellent compilation records of some of the best proto-metal and stoner rock music ever made back in the 1960s and 70s, at the dawn of the genre. Ghost Cult brings you the new single from the newest edition, Brown Acid: The Fifth Trip, appropriately due out this Halloween via Riding Easy Records. Jam out to Captain Foam’s ‘No Reason’ – below.

Lance Barresi, co-owner of L.A./Chicago retailer Permanent Records has shown incredible persistence in tracking down a stellar collection of rare singles from the 60s and 70s for the growing compilation series. Partnered with Daniel Hall of RidingEasy Records, the two have assembled a selection of songs that’s hard to believe have remained unheard for so long.
“I essentially go through hell and high water just to find these records. Once I find a record worthy of tracking, I begin the (sometimes) extremely arduous process of contacting the band members and encouraging them to take part. Daniel and I agree that licensing all the tracks we’re using for Brown Acid is best for everyone involved,” rather than simply bootlegging the tracks. When all of the bands and labels haven’t existed for 30-40 years or more, tracking down the creators gives all of these tunes a real second chance at success.
“There’s a long list of songs that we’d love to include, But we just can’t track the bands down. I like the idea that Brown Acid is getting so much attention, so people might reach out to us.”
