Christopher were an underground acid-rock trio featuring future Josefus
drummer Doug Tull. They evolved from United Gas, a psychedelic band from
Houston who rubbed shoulders with legends like The 13th Floor Elevators
and Moving Sidewalks. After relocating to Los Angeles, where they
changed their name to Christopher, they played at numerous biker parties
and recorded their sole album in 1970 for the Metromedia label. It's an
amazing example of West Coast psychedelia/acid-rock featuring strong
fuzz-wah guitar, great compositions and superb musicianship. One of the
Holy Grails of American psychedelic-rock and the rarest album originally
released by the collectable Metromedia label.
The sleeve design was taken at the headquarters of the Barons of Earth
(a motorcycle gang the band had ties with). The round room was used In
the opening scene of Peter Fonda's film "the trip".
