Nirvana - Local Anaesthetic (Repertoire Records) 1971

Biography :  The original Nirvana first appeared in the midst of the psychedelic revolution in 1967, playing it's unique brand of cello and harpsichord driven melodic chamber music. Led by Irish born Patrick Campbell-Lyons and greek guitarist Alex Spyropoulos, they started out as a six piece. After some rehearsals, the group arranged appointments to see George Martin, John Burgess, Denny Cordell and Chris Blackwell, of which Blackwell liked them enough to sign them to the brand new Island label. The band quickly went on to take photos with Gered Mankowitz and were launched to the press and the public with a performance at the Saville Theater in London's West End. The band then released their science-fiction LP, The Story Of Simon Simopath on Island in 1967,and found an audience for their music. Although the band wouldn't achieve a hit single until their third try, with Rainbow Chaser. With it's melancholic melody and super phased chorus, it is recognized a true psychedelic classic. It was right after recording their first album when the representatives of the production company involved in a movie called The Touchable contacted the band after hearing their demo recording of the song All Of Us. That same day they secured the deal to have that song as the theme song for their movie. Recorded the following week at Pye Studios, All Of Us became the title track to their next Island LP. All Of Us featured a more polish and confident sound and it's share of memorable melodies with Melanie Blue, Tiny Goddess (which was originally released as their debut single) and Trapeze. After that album, Nirvana was down to a duo and their next album Black Flower was rejected by Chris Blackwell. Frustrated, the duo went to Pye Records to have it released. After buying the recordings off of Island and changing the albums title to Dedicated To Markos III, it was released to next to nothing in sales. Alex Spyropoulos left soon after the release and Nirvana was down to Patrick Campbell-Lyons as the only main member. He went on to record a final album on the progressive label Vertigo, Local Anesthetic in 1971. In the 1990's, however, with renewed interest in the group, the duo came together and worked on some (rather wimpy/crappy) new material and remixing old unreleased stuff for a couple more albums, Orange And Blue and Secret Theater.
