The Brown Acid Wizard: Lance from Permanent Records

Over the last couple of years RidingEasy Records have been releasing a series of compilations of obscure proto-metal and psych from the 60s and 70s under the moniker The Brown Acid. They have been consistently excellent with some serious lost gems on there, so we thought it was about time we caught up with their acid dealer; Lance from Permanent Records.
