The Electric Prunes

Electric Prunes

"Few rock singles are as simultaneously experimental and commercial as the Electric Prunes' 'I Had Too Much to Dream (Last Night)'. That was obvious from the opening hook: a slowly swelling, backwards burst of fuzztone tremolo guitar, announcing the record's arrival like a supersonic bee swooping into your speakers. And few hits jam so many ideas into three minutes. There are those violin-like distorted washes of guitar backing hushed vocals that explode into anguished near-screams; sudden dead-air stops, punctuated by lonely groans suggesting descents through the earth's crust; and spooky guitar reverb complementing the drifts between blissful dreams and waking nightmares." - Richie Unterberger
