Formed in 1967 in Kobenhavn, Denmark, Young Flowers were one of the few true Psychedelic Bands to come out of Denmark. Even though there were many bands coming out of the Denmark scene, like Culpeper's Orchard or The Savage Rose, many of them were not Hardcore Psych-Heads at all, playing Acid-Folk or some more Pop oriented sounds. Young Flowers were all about Psychedelia, Fuzzy Guitars and all. Most of the tracks are sung in English, only two of the being sung in their native language, and two of the songs are covers of Bob Dylan and B.B. King. Blomsterpistolen was also a TV Series with the same name. The story basically consists of some Aliens invading Earth, but their guns instead of firing bullets, fire flowers, so the name Blomsterpistolen, which means Flower gun is a quite literal and objective. There is no doubt that they were truly Flower Power hippies, the whole bunch of them. They would break-up in 1970 but all the three members of the Band would go on to play in several other famous Danish Bands like Culpeper’s Orchard in the case of Ken Gudman, or Savage Rose for Peter Ingemann. Another great Album from Denmark, definitively worth a listen.
Best Tracks – “The Moment Life Appeared”, “25 Ore”, “Oppe I Traet” and “April 68”. The Cover-Art is quite chaotic and I must say I don’t like it very much, three flowers who show the faces of the three musicians when they bloom, but the draws are not that good and the proportions seem all wrong.
- Peter Ingemann - Bass, Vocals.
- Ken Gudman – Drums.
- Peer Frost – Guitar.
