(www.RockMuse.com/wcpaeb.html) A remembrance to this mysterious band......
News 2009: The Shindig magazine has published in 2008 an update of Tim Forster's WCPAEB history (in three parts). The magazines
are sold out, but the Shindig Anual book has republished the whole
story and is still available.
The MOJO Collections issue (Spring 2001) has an interesting "Psych Fest" feature including a 3 page article on the WCPAEB (by Tim Forster and Jim Irvin). Most of the story has previously been published by Ptolemaic Terrascope (see below), but it's good to see the growing interest in the music of the WCPAEB.
The label Sundazed has finally reissued the first three mindblowing albums: Part One; Vol. 2; and A Child's Guide To Good And Evil. Checkout the Sundazed website for more information.
The first WCPAEB album (Volume One) has already been reissued on both CD and LP by Sundazed. For more information see the Discography.
The Ptolemaic Terrascope magazine has published a very extensive feature about the West Coast Pop
Art Experimental Band in issues nr.26 and 27.
See the Ptolemaic Terrascope Website for subscribtion and other information.

All of the first album, along with the single "Sassafras", was issued on an excellent quality bootleg
CD simply called "West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band" a couple of years ago. This is also the
material that is used as the basis of the Sundazed CD (Volume Oen).
