"The musicianship, vocals, arrangements and production on this album are first class. I was highly impressed."

Tom Campbell/Minniepaul music

"The album opens with Something’s Coming. This a superb track. Just what I was expecting the band would do very, very, very, well. It Kicks! “Voids Can Be Filled” is among my favorites! This is a true Psychedelic throwback. With its subject matter, tempo variations and word play! Just fantastic"

Mike Warre/ Host of WEQY's Mike's Minnesota Music Warrehouse

"Got my copy of the Litter's new record, "Future of the Past!" Love it! Tom Murray has hit it out of Met Stadium! When is the dance party?? A must have for all you Cats and Kittens!"

Blackberry Way adds The Litter to the roster


Blackberry Way Records is proud to announce the addition of THE LITTER to our roster with the new album: “FUTURE OF THE PAST” 

In the late 1960’s THE LITTER followed up their punk/garage classic hit Action Woman with three LP’s: Distortions, $100 Fine & Emerge. Emerge, released on ABC’s Probe label, was awarded gold status selling over 500,000 albums around the world & Along with Distortions has remained one of the most respected and  records from the psychedelic era. The Litter toured the nation playing shows with Led Zeppelin, The Who, Jethro Tull and Cream to name a few.

The appropriately titled Future Of The Past is an out of the box vision of where rock was and should be going. Original member Tom Murray enlisted the help of some talented and enthusiastic young players, as well as original Litter guitarist Zippy Caplan, Larry Wiegand of Crow and original guitarist of The Revolution, Dez Dickerson, to add their magic to the recording.

This is  A  HAPPENING!!!
