Information about the album/band/track :

“Golden Pavilion Records”

Canterbury style UK fragile folk with psych leanings. UK album recorded by a group of students at the Ingestre Hall Residential Arts Centre. The name of the band was actually a joke based on newspaper advertisements for musicians to join bands, which would sometimes end with “No time wasters”! So Greg Holt, the band’s founder, called them “Time Wasters Only” and the generic name for any of the musicians in the group became “Time Wasters”. Musically ranging from fragile and melodic folk with Bluesy moments and even soul-jazz vibes, encompased in a psych-folk-rock with Canterbury signature. A lost album in the brink of a new era, echoing sounds of British progressive and psych-folk. Fully licensed reissue limited to 500 copies only.

“Popsike”

An Acid-Folk-Psych-Prog lost masterpiece by the obscure TIME WASTERS.

Reecorded some 40 years ago, truely stunning UK private press by 6 long haired students at the Ingestre Hall Residential Arts Centre. Canterbury style UK fragile folk with prog/psych leanings and some great late 60s Pink Floyd-ish electric guitar leads. Great vox and some enchanted wind playing, encompassed in a psych-folk-rock signature. 12 blistering original tracks, recorded at Ingester Hall, originally released in 1978 on the Sticky label, only 200 copies max pressed !

Comes in fully laminated sleeve with lyric insert, blue label.
