Twink – Think Pink – Vinyl Record

Think Pink is the debut solo album by Twink, the stage name of John Charles Alder, an English drummer who was a central figure in the UK’s psychedelic rock scene during the late 1960s. Released in 1970, the album is a cult classic in the realm of psychedelic and experimental rock. Twink, who previously played with bands like The Pretty Things, Tomorrow, and The Pink Fairies, brought together a diverse group of musicians to create this distinctive record, which stands out for its eclectic and surreal sonic landscapes.

Think Pink is a psychedelic journey characterized by its whimsical and experimental approach. The album is known for its unique blend of spoken word, folk influences, heavy rock, and avant-garde elements. It’s imbued with a sense of free-spiritedness that reflects the countercultural ethos of the time.

Key Tracks

“Ten Thousand Words in a Cardboard Box” – One of the most recognized tracks on the album, it features heavy guitar riffs and surreal, dreamy lyrics. The track encapsulates the psychedelic sound and is noted for its compelling structure and vivid imagery.

“Mexican Grass War” – This track stands out for its narrative style and experimental sound, weaving together spoken word with atmospheric music backgrounds.

“Rock an’ Roll The Joint” – A more energetic track, it showcases Twink’s drumming prowess and the album’s capacity to shift from introspective to high-energy rock.

“Suicide” – A darker, more introspective song that contrasts with the album’s otherwise whimsical tone, providing depth and complexity.

The production of Think Pink reflects the era’s typical DIY ethos, with a raw and somewhat unpolished sound that enhances its authenticity and appeal to psychedelic music enthusiasts. The album was produced by Mick Farren, a key figure in the UK underground scene, and features contributions from members of The Deviants, Hawkwind, and the Pink Fairies, among others.

Upon its release, Think Pink did not achieve major commercial success but has since gained a following and is regarded as an essential piece of psychedelic rock history. It’s celebrated for its pioneering spirit and its ability to capture the experimental and liberating qualities of the late 60s psychedelic movement.

The album’s legacy continues in its influence on later generations of psychedelic and experimental musicians. It is often rediscovered by enthusiasts who seek the roots of psychedelic rock outside the mainstream, serving as a testament to Twink’s creativity and his contributions to the genre’s development. Think Pink remains a treasure for collectors and a fascinating exploration of the boundaries of rock music.
