Los Angeles psychedelic pop quartet, The Three O’Clock have reunited for a short run of dates this April and they are celebrating their current reunion with a brand new compilation album.
Titled 'The Hidden World Revealed', the compilation will feature 10 previously unreleased tracks and spans the years 1981 to 1986, including better known songs such as "Stupid Einstein", "Jet Fighter" and "With a Cantaloupe Girlfriend" as well as previously unreleased demos and alternate takes, including a home demo of "Jennifer Only" that dates back to the band's original incarnation as The Salvation Army.
"The Hidden World Revealed takes you from the early days of recording in Michael Quercio’s garage to the days leading up to Arrive Without Traveling and beyond. A combination of the well-known and the unknown. The completist guide to The Three O’Clock — ten years in the making 30 plus years of recording. . . whoosh!"
