"Tony Hill is considered to be a pioneer of the psychedelic guitar back in the sixties when he was with cult band The Misunderstood. He later went on to form High Tide who's music broke down all barriers and gave a new meaning the word PSYCHEDELIA. With his new band FICTION, expect a fuzz drenched, mind blowing, psychedelic guitar work out that will amaze any self respecting music lover". Mark Newman, Radio never say die, 2001 Tony Hill - Guitar/Vocals Dean E Holt - Bass Syd Farrel - Drums
