Detroit’s Outrageous Cherry have released critically acclaimed records on an assortment of cool labels such as Third Gear, Bar None, Del-Fi, Poptones UK, Rainbow Quartz, and Alive. They were also a huge favorite of mine when I published Vendetta Magazine, garnering two extensive interviews. Fronted by Matthew Smith on vocals and guitar, Outrageous Cherry has been compared to the likes of The Velvet Underground, Shadows of Knight, and on their more psychedelic material, Hawkwind. Heather Phares of All Music Guide writes: “While their sound evokes a host of garage-psych bands, from ’60s originators to ’80s revivalists, Outrageous Cherry’s affection for this kind of music and their experimental touches make their albums a bit like a jukebox full of forgotten hits, and a bit like a time machine with its controls set for the past and the future.” Elephant Stone is proud to release the group’s “I’ve Been Obsessed” 7″, which contains two sparkling tracks that will not appear anywhere else.
