Creation Records, each one hitting the higher reaches of the UK independent charts, some of them making it into the UK mainstream charts.

Flower Girl
Flower Girl
Wandering the Philadelphia psychedelic underground since 2004, with 8 releases on their own Circus Peanut imprint, Flower Girl go for the improvised approach stretching out their instrumental sounds into flowing acid rock epics full of variation, the mellow and delicate colliding with some wonderful interludes of noise.


" . . . a lost Kosmiche classic or a hidden nugget from the Japanese underground."

"It’s like Flower Girl sought to answer that age old question “what happens if I press this shiny red button?"

" . . . a gorgeous melody before building to a sonic dust-up . . . through a range of moods and emotions."

---Ian Fraser, Terrascope Online

"Lay back, close your eyes and let Flower Girl take you on a technicolour trip . . . “

" . . . acid riffing, soaring guitar solos, hypnotic drums. Each crescendo followed by a mellow come down with lysergic noodling and and blissed out atmospheres.”

" . . . like the Stooges utterly wasted on triple strength acid.”
---Dave Gedge, Bad Acid
