The Deviants - "PTOOFF!" 1967, "Disposable" 1968

The Deviants (formerly The Social Deviants) were and English Rock group originally active in the 1960's, but until his death in 2013 used as a vehicle for the musical work of writer Mick Farren.

Farren has stated that originally The Deviants were a community band which "did things now and then--it was a total assault thing with a great deal of interrelation and interdependence." Musically, Farren described their sound as "teeth-grinding psychedelic rock" somewhere between The Stooges and The Mothers of Invention. The Deviants have been described as a transition between classic British psych, and the punk/heavy metal aesthetic of the '70's. According to Farren, The Deviants original aim was to make it "a loud basic rock band" playing "British amphetamine psychosis music."

They released three albums between 1967 and 1969. This being their first, "PTOOFF!" 1967

Their second: "Disposable" 1968
