The Bear Garden. a chest full of wonders

Dustbin Full of Rubbish

A semi-mysterious, short-lived psychedelic group who gigged around London's clubs like Happening 44 and Middle Earth from late 1967 to mid-1968 when they became Yes. Their wild, psychedelic Ford Thames van was a welcome and regular sight around London's West End for a few brief months but sadly their only recording date was for John Peel's 'Night Ride' broadcast on 3rd April 1968. It consisted of Electric Funeral, Images Of Me And You, Janetta and Beyond And Before, which later turned up in Yes. These tracks, minus Electric Funeral, have now surfaced on Dustbin Full Of Rubbish (LP) and reveal a rawer  version of early Yes in which Jon Anderson's vocals stand out.
