Ok, Anba piqued me curiousity when he started babbling about some obscure psychedelic band from 60s London fronted by a Malaysian dude by the name of Sam Gopal.
A quick dip in cyberspace revealed that the band did indeed exist & played alongside some seriously BIG names of that decade - Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Soft Machine - and even featured a certain Ian Kilminster (ie Lemmy of Hawkwind & Motorhead fame) in its line up.
From what me gathers, Sam Gopal played the tablas & they managed to produce ONE album Escalator. And lo & behold, me found the download link to the album.

Have not heard this meself yet, but me has got the feeling this is gonna be mystical, whimsical & downright weird & fooking wonderful!
What me wants to know now is what has happened to good old Uncle Sam & why the govt has not made him a 'Datuk' yet?!!? Anyone who has played with Jimi deserves a Datukship!
ps: As usual me looks forward to reading yer comments on this album.
pps: Check out the "ferocious" facial hair on the album cover . . . dashyat . . .
