"The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band" was an American Psychedelic Rock band of the late 1960s, based in Los Angeles, California.
There are few groups as enigmatic, as mysterious as "The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band".


The early "The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band", a mixture of understatement and melody, with exceptional guitar work which flew over the top of the song, creating an atmosphere that was itself unique.
It's the style that the group would expand on.

Their first 'proper' album, "Part One", ranged from anthemic Pop songs and acoustic ballads to harder-edged Psychedelic numbers.

The music is dominated by crude Sunset Strip Folk-Garage cover versions, with some Psychedelic moments.
