“The Pink Fairies are an English rock band initially active in the London (Ladbroke Grove) underground and psychedelic scene of the early 1970s. They promoted free music, drug taking and anarchy and often performed impromptu gigs and other agitprop stunts, such as playing for free outside the gates at the Bath and Isle of Wight pop festivals in 1970, as well as appearing at Phun City, the first Glastonbury and many other free festivals including Windsor and Trentishoe.” Wikipedia

Eric Bachmann – Mercy (2016)

“There may be no better depiction of the exasperating dynamics among loved ones than the way Eric Bachmann puts it on “Mercy,” the second song on his new solo album. “I’ve got family, I’ve got friends/ And I will love them till the end,” he sings. “Despite the batshit-crazy things they often say.” Yep.
The song is a lush doo-wop number with resonant piano, a big beat and layers of background vocals bolstering Bachmann’s rich baritone. It would be the centerpiece of the album, if the other tunes weren’t just as powerful.” Pastemagazine

“The new line-up performed at the 1972 Reading Festival. Barcus Berry instrument pick-ups, now sported by the band’s string trio, allowed them to have proper amplification on stage for their instruments, which had previously been all but drowned out by all the sound of the electrified instruments. The band released their second album, ELO 2 in 1973, which produced their second UK top 10 and their first US chart single, an elaborate version of the Chuck Berry classic “Roll Over Beethoven”Wiki
