***From the opening riff of the Flies' hard-edged debut single for Decca, “(I'm Not Your) Stepping Stone,” you might think that here was a band who were destined for glory-possibly even fame and fortune. But their story, like that of many awe-inspiring UK underground bands from the 1960s, was not a success story. Yes, the Flies had a few other releases on Decca and RCA, none of which attained any chart success. If not for the inclusion of this one slab of fuzz psychedelia on the legendary compilation Chocolate Soup for Diabetics, the Flies would perhaps have remained unknown to devotees of the 1960s psychedelic scene. Key members went on to found bands like PLEASE, T2, BULLDOG BREED, GUN, and INFINITY. Although commercial success eluded them, it is fitting that the Flies have now achieved cult fame through their singles, which range from freakbeat to Mark Wirtz-esque pop/psych, and their introspective demos are perhaps even better. Contains everything by the Flies-released and unreleased-including demo versions, and alternates, plus a sampling from their 1965 pre-Flies incarnation as the IN-SECT as a bonus. Fat 20-page booklet is packed with detailed notes on the band, original Decca promotional materials, and plentiful photos.
