"Detour Records" Brings you an offer Of A Life Time.... Join Us And Get On Board And Take A Psychedelic Trip With


Exploding from the apathy that was the Portsmouth music scene in 1984, Paul Groovy & The Pop Art Experience, set the South Coast ablaze ,mixing their love of 60s garage and 70s punk into a heady maelstrom of fuzz and feedback.

They supported TV Personalities The Cannibals, The Prisoners, Mighty Lemon Drops, Shop Assistants  and The Primitives as well as playing their own headline gigs.

The songs on this limited edition slice of Pop Art Punk grooves were first released as a cassette album (remember them?!)  called “Let’s Crash The Blue Bus” on Bite Back Records  in 1986.

Airplay from John Peel, Janice Long and Annie Nightingale soon ensured that these songs would become cult classics.

“Genuine contenders' - NME 1985

“Tasty tunes...a huge hit"- Record Mirror 1986

“Supreme team pop art"- NME 1987

“More than JUST a band"- Melody Maker 1986

Detour Records are thrilled to mark the 35th anniversary of that release with this limited edition 10" Black vinyl pressing, which also sees 5 of the songs appearing on vinyl for the very first time.
