Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci: “Sometimes the Father is the Son” (1997)

The gently psychedelic acoustic folk of Welch band Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci seems to belie its era of origin. I hear in it the sound of Donovan’s mid-to-late 60’s album tracks, or Irish duo Tir Na Nog’s work from the early 70’s. Certainly it bears more resemblance to the music of those decades than what 90’s Britpop typically produced.

Thus they make a great find–in an unlikely place–for fans of the British “mushroom folk” of decades gone by.
