Really been getting into this band, alot of the hippy jams loose me, but songs like Teenage rebel, and Do It are total headbanging early metal. Mates with hawkwind i beleive



Anyone recommend other 60's rockers or know much about them???

Technically, the Pinks were 70s; from that great time when the remnants of the London hippies had given up on the peace and love, leaving just the sex, drugs, and nihilism. They were kind of a super group of all the various outcasts that stuck with the scene instead of becoming business men. The original band was born out of the ashes of a group called the Deviants; though this band didn't rock nearly as hard (their 3rd album's decent). Larry Wallis, (supposedly guitarist of UFO before being replaced by Michael Schenker), lead them on the "Kings of Oblivion" lp, then went on to form a band called Motorhead with some spun hippy who'd just got kicked out of Hawkwind for a drug charge. That's why "City Kids" is on the original MH, but not on the version that was first released (after Fast Eddie Clark took over guitar).

Anyway, there's tons of killer 70s hard rock bands like that (related and not). Check out the May Blitz, Groundhogs ("Split"), Flower Travelling Band ("Satori" stands up to any early Sabbath album!), Human Instinct ("Stoned Guitar"), Lucifer's Friend (first album only), so many more... If y're looking for something more obscure, look for JPT Scare Band, Sanban No San, Gedo, Randy Holden, Lincoln St. Exit, Shiver (from San Francisco, not the Swiss band)

I am a massive fan of the Pink Fairies along with tons of late 60's/early 70's heavy rock, you should also check out he Deviants, especially '3' they were pre Pink Fairies with Mick Farren on vocals, his book, Give The Anarchist A Cigarette is a great insight into this era.
I can also highly recommend Groundhogs 'Split', Twink 'Think Pink' early Edgar Broughton Band LP's, Amon Duul 'Yeti' and 'Phallus Dei', Guru Guru 'UFO', Stray 1st LP, some Quintessence although they tend to be a bit drippy hippy, T2 'It Will All Work Out In Boomland' Scorpions 'Lonesome Crow', Pretty Things 'SF Sorrow', most King Crimson but especially 'Larks Tongues In Aspic', the list goes on.... oh, and of course Hawkwind, the Lemmy era being indispensible...

Also Dark 'Round The Edges' a ludicrously rare and expensive LP, (£1800+ for an original, apparently only 35 or so copies were pressed!) but has some KILLER fuzz guitar, Akarma in Italy did a great reissue some years back, well worth checking out.

It was not Lemmy, but Larry Wallis who also was in the first Motörhead line-up

Aaah recommending old hard/psych rock!!!

Check out these guys:
Bang - s/t (at some moments very black sabbathian!)
High Tide - Sea Shanties LP (the first song is HEAVY)
Iron Claw
The Firebirds (studio musicians doing psych stuff, Cream and Blue Cheer worship)
31 Flavors (Same band as Firebirds, check out the song 'Distortions Of Darkness': heaviest 60s fuzz I've ever heard, sounds like something from Earth's Pentastar LP)
Sainte Anthony's Fyre - s/t (heavy basement hardrock)
...
