Julian Cope, in his book Japrocksampler , said that Tokyo's The Mops made some of the most urgently deranged and euphorically disruptive music of the entire Group Sounds era. In thrall to the San Francisco sound their manager had visited Haight Ashbury and brought the first Jefferson Airplane album back to Japan they recorded unhinged covers of The Airplane s Somebody To Love and White Rabbit for Psychedelic Sounds In Japan. They also loved The Animals their takes of San Francisco Nights and Inside Looking Out Are testaments to The Mops wildness. This essential, fun and historic album is supplemented by an intense non-album single from 1968.
