Psylons - Psylons Is Golden

Psylons Is Golden is the first album by Portsmouth's Psylons released in 1988. It was released on cassette only by bite back, and features a sample of DJ John Peel before the first track suggesting that if they ever recorded an album they should call it  Psylons Is Golden... Which they of course did !

The Psylons were a UK post-punk band formed in Portsmouth 1984 by Keith Wyatt, Carl Edwards, Jack Packer and Warren Grech. The band produced four singles, an EP and two albums, the second of which, “Gimp” was produced by Jim Shaw of Cranes. The debut single “Run To The Stranger” was a New Musical Express Single of the Week and reached number 13 in the Alternative/Indie chart. Two sessions were recorded for BBC Radio One and broadcast on the John Peel and Andy Kershaw shows.Over the next few years the band gigged extensively and supported many acts including The Fall, My Bloody Valentine, Cranes, Spiritualized and Moonshake.
