As Australia began a series of flash pandemic lockdowns in early 2021, Melbourne psychedelic fuzz rock band Jack Harlon & the Dead Crows’ prolific frontman Tim Coutts-Smith began experimenting with home recording some of his favorite old songs.  This rabbit-hole exploration eventually led him to bring the fans in on the project, with a social media post inviting their suggestions of old underground songs they'd like to hear “Harlon-ified."

The result is Hail to the Underground, a collection of Jack Harlon & The Dead Crows renditions selected for their musical importance and personal meaning, with the general throughline being that few of the original artists are household names.  Filtered heavily through the spaced-out psychedelia of Jack Harlon's inimitable style, this fuzz-drenched, genre-crossing love letter includes songs by under the radar icons like Bauhaus, God, Butthole Surfers, Joy Division, The Melvins, and more.
