This rather groovy track is evidence that the Americans weren't the only ones that could produce classic garage/psych tunes during the mid 60s. The Eyes were a British outfit around from 1964 to early 67. When The Night Falls was the band's first single released in 1965 on the Mercury label and although it was released on a major label the record failed to grab the attention of the record buying public and so is a pretty rare piece of vinyl these days. The band went on to release a further four singles none of which fared any better. The band had a song called My Degeneration and when I first heard When The Night Falls I thought that the sound owed more than a little to Pete Townsend.
