The Barrier

60s UK blues/psych rock and roll group Hurdle comprised Alan Brooks (drums), Alan Francis (bass), Eric Francis (vocals/body organ) and Del Dwyer (electric guitar). Shaped in Fulham, south London, Britain, their debut one, ‘Georgie Dark brown’/‘Dawn Breaks Through’, premiered for the 3rd party blues label Eyemark Information in 1968. The b-side was also documented by the Crimson Hurdle (the group’s ‘psychedelic’ alter ego) for the same label. It resulted in a agreement with Philips Information, and two additional 1968 singles. Both ‘Tide Can be Turning’ and ‘Place The Lighting’ were cases of garage area pop, but neither produced very much impression outside south London. The group split up, though their limited discography provides frequently been revisited by psychedelic and garage area enthusiasts, as the singles have already been put together on many albums such as for example Freakbeat Vol. 3 and A VACATION WITHIN A Painted Globe. Alan Brooks continued to become listed on Punching Judy.
