The albums by the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band - Part One, Vol. 2 and Vol. 3: A Child's Guide to Good & Evil - can be clearly seen as encyclopedic primers of soaring psychedelia, achingly pure folk-rock and Zappa/Beefheart strangeness. These seminally influential works from teenage studio whiz Michael Lloyd, brothers Shaun and Danny Harris and Bob Markley now define the late-'60s Los Angeles musical experience. And, like figures from a Raymond Chandler novel, Michael and'shaun step out of the shadows in exclusive interviews, detailing what really went down with one of L.A.'s most revered yet misunderstood psych-era combos!
