The 40 Watt Banana, formed in 1968, was a unique band in New Zealand, the only group that ventured into the esoteric realm of Indo-Afro psychedelic music. Peeled includes their sought-after 45 from 1971 (the sitar-psych-dancer ''Nirvana'') plus previously unreleased recordings full of sitar, tabla, sarod, tanpura, trumpet, recorder, effects, and tape echo. Formed by Kevin Clark and Dave Parsons, initially as a jazz combo playing in restaurants, they soon incorporated elements of Indian and African music to their sound, after some soul searching and spiritual experiences. The result was an atmospheric, spacey, improvised sound. In 1971, they released their only 45 for the HMV label. It featured a great sitar-psych track, ''Nirvana'', similar to other psychedelic jazz-pop-funk experiments from the time such as ''Mathar'' by Dave Pike Set. But during the late '60s and early '70s, the band also recorded other stuff which has remained unreleased until now. Includes insert with photos and liner notes by band member Kevin Clark (now a renowned world/jazz/fusion music artist).

We try to be as accurate as possible, but we use a service to get images for the vinyl records we sell. Sometimes, this leads to the image showing a special colored vinyl edition of a record when we only have the standard black vinyl version.
