Marc Bolan's sixties track 'Midsummer Night's Scene' is revisited by Finland's Octopus Syng, who do a great job in maintaining the weirdly psychedelic feel of the original.

This is a 2 minute excerpt from a track on the new Fruits de Mer Records double album 'Keep Off The Grass' - on sale December 2011.

'Keep Off The Grass' is a limited-edition, vinyl-only, massive compilation of classic and obscure sixties tracks - from phased sunshine pop to dark fuzz, and all things in between (and either side).

19 bands, 19 tracks, 85 minutes of music exclusive to this compilation.
