THE CALICO WALL “I’M A LIVING SICKNESS”

GHAS-9
7" Single / Digital
May 12, 2017 (Reissue)

Originally released by Dove Recordings in 1967 and reissued on Get Hip Archive Series in 1995, this essential 45 is available once again on two limited edition colored variants and classic black vinyl.

The Calico Wall’s music transcended their short-lived rise in 1967 and defined the term “psychedelic” in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The band’s definitive single “I’m a Living Sickness,” with its ominous organ intro, fuzz-drenched tremolo guitar, snarling vocals and intense lyrics, had only seen the light of day as a limited bootleg pressing—until now.

Get Hip Archive Series has finally reissued this classic rarity, long considered the holy grail of 1960s Garage-Psych, with the highest possible sound quality.

Also included is the original instrumental track to the acid-dripping “Flight Reaction.”
