The first release on Athens of the North spaced out sister label 'Ocean of Tears' had to be something obscure, weird and brilliant so here we are….
Forest Terry was a tripped out intellectual from Boston who dabbled his hands in electronics and psychedelic funk. His former band "Original Black Sheep" released a couple of top notch psychedelic funk records that would cost you a small fortune if you could find one, this 45 (Forrest's attempt at a solo career) is even more obscure. 'Satellite Love' is crazy psychedelic sex ballad, I wanted to put this out the first time I heard it (and it took some time to make it happen) . The flip is also a banger, a heavy break driven low-fi funk 45 which Forest uses to show off his Tri-Speed Moog Keytar Synthesizer Guitar skills, which incidentally he invented and patented. As a nod to the O.G label and in the spirit of Forests do it yourself attitude I had a go a drawing my own Keytar for our label, hope you like it.
So hopefully this is the start of something wonderful, I label where we can put out those weird and wonderful records that don't fit anywhere else but deserve to be celebrated.
Here is a rare video of Forrest performing the two songs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGhNlcWM7nU
