ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The debut album from Betty & The Id is entitled “The Wrong Side Of Everything". The initial pressing comes as coloured vinyl effect CD's in five different colours (Red,Orange,Blue,Green and traditional Black.) Orange now sold out! The album was recorded and mixed over a two-day period in December 2008 at Toe Rag analogue studio, Hackney, live onto Studer A-80 1 inch 8-track tape machine using a vintage backline and minimal overdubs. No computers were used in the making of this album. Betty & The Id were formed at the start of 2007 and began gigging in March of that year. Since their inception the group have gigged incessantly honing a formidable and intense live experience. The group currently consists of Antony Cook (Drums), Simon Maragh (Bass Guitar, Keyboards, Vocals), Allan R Murphy (Guitar/Bass Guitar) and Jim Smith (Guitar/Vocals).

Reviews:
"Having released an eponymous EP last year, the Birmingham quartet now go the whole hog with The Wrong Side Of Everything (Wrong Syde), a debut album of a further nine numbers that consolidates their blend of 60s garage psychrock and 80s New Wave. The Zappa and Floyd flavours from the EP don’t resurface here, but Oregon Trail is vintage early Stranglers, the likes of Bad Girl, Bad Trip and Fiery Grave suggest a familiarity with the Electric Prunes and their kindred spirits while the drum driven Standards marries hints of prog jazz experimentalists Matching Mole with shards of Pigbag and, detecting a pagan folk twinge in their makeup, even the Dancing Did.

The bass and keyboards heavy Burning Away recasts The Fall in the Nuggets era of underground psychedelia, Rotary Mind and Vale Onslow are space rock as imagined by early Sonic Youth and the dark swirly twisted instrumental freak out End Is Nigh even owes a debt to Neal Hefti’s Batman theme. All of which adds up to a driven, aggressive but accessible aural experience which, by report, is even more intense live where they’ve been known to veer off into lengthy improvisation and wrap the crowd in mind-expanding light shows." - Mike Davies, Birmingham Post
