  • Description

    Let's take a trip to the zoo, in mono! Labeled as a part of the Bosstown Sound, these Boston psych rockers take listeners along for the ride - their freak-out arrangement of "Gloria" and a slew of outtasite originals showcase their intricate psych pop sound. Got your lava lamp bubbling yet?

    Originally from Swansea, MA, the Tangerine Zoo formed just six months before writing and recording their first album. Once they turned down RCA and Atlantic for Mainstream, the group agreed to do one single and an album, one that'd take just 13 hours to complete. Inspired by Vanilla Fudge and the hippie scene in Greenwich Village, the band's acid rock captured the same psychedelic sound bands like Orpheus, Ultimate Spinach, and Beacon Street Union were creating in Boston.

    After a promotional tour, the band went on to make just one other album before dissolving at the end of the '60s, leaving a true Bosstown artyfact behind.

    "Tangerine Zoo may be an orange happening, and have to be seen to be believed. They make the claim that 'your eyes and ears will throw a party for your mind.'"
