They never had any commercial success in the U.K. or the U.S., but Blossom Toes were one of the more interesting British psychedelic groups of the late '60s. Starting as The Ingoes, just another of thousands of British R&B/beat bands of the mid-'60s, the group hooked up with legendary impresario Giorgio Gomelsky (early mentor of the Stones and manager of the Yardbirds and Soft Machine, among others) in 1966।
Gomelsky changed their name and put them on his Marmalade label. Their 1967 debut LP was miles away from R&B, reflecting an extremely British whimsy and skilled, idiosyncratic songwriting more in line with Ray Davies. Released at the Height of 'Flower Power' in 1967, "We Are Ever So Clean" is widely considered to be the finest popsike album ever recorded. Produced by Giorgio Gomelsky it's a fascinating amalgam of himsical pop, music hall humour and acid rock.
