Beautiful Debris ‎(LP, Album). Former member of Blair 1523 Alan Duke said, Many moons ago I fronted a band called Blair 1523. I think it was the biggest mistake we ever made, and regret that we disbanded. And there are many others out there who feel the same way, saddened that this bit of psychedelic wanderlust flashed like a flame in space momentarily, and just as quickly were gone

It's a fun and accurate album title, Beautiful Debris, collecting the quite wonderful and indeed more often than not sweetly beautiful output of Blair 1523. The group only released an EP in its lifetime on a small English label; thankfully Spacemen 3/Spectrum mainman Sonic Boom heard it and was able to arrange for the release of Debris some time later

Talk about Blair 1523 - Beautiful Debris


Keath
Referencing their name from the San Antonio garage psych band The Outcasts (they were invited to appear in Houston, Texas with The Beatles, but turned down the opportunity), who had two brilliant hits smack dab in the middle of the 60’s “I’m In Pittsburg (And It’s Raining), along with “1523 Blair,” sent a sampler to Pete Kember, late of Spaceman 3, though by the time he could get in touch with the band found that they’d broken up. Nevertheless a compilation of sorts was compiled of these tapes. Former member of Blair 1523 Alan Duke said, “Many moons ago I fronted a band called Blair 1523. I think it was the biggest mistake we ever made, and regret that we disbanded.” And there are many others out there who feel the same way, saddened that this bit of psychedelic wanderlust flashed like a flame in space momentarily, and just as quickly were gone. Beautiful Debris turned out to be just what the title inferred, bits and pieces, debris that hang like near sonically perfect musical ghosts, laced with infectious grooves of psychedelia that move with an eloquence and sense of longing and desire in an understated manner that doesn’t so much lay you back and waste your soul, more that it fills the listener with a stoned energy of expansive intimacy. Beautiful Debris comes on like the dizzying substance and anesthetic ether, delivering an array of intoxicating musical effects, and like the drug, is highly flammable, especially in conjunction with oxygen … suggesting that Blair 1532 was doomed to implosion once their notes first mixed with Earth’s atmosphere. Beautiful Debris is a snapshot of something that never took on physical form, and in that sense, feeling that these songs exist without a home, floating free, only adds to the beautiful mysterious nature of all things psychedelic.*** The Fun Facts: The Outcasts took their name from the address of the Doyle Jones Recording Studio in Houston … Blair 1532 hail from a place called Crown Parish, located in Cornwall, on the southwestern tip of the UK.You can read my interview with George Harris of Blair 1523 http://www.psychedelicbabymag.com/2017/05/blair-1523-interview-with.html in It's Psychedelic Baby Magazine.Review by Jenell Kesler
