Haymarket Square was a Chicago-based psychedelic rock band in the late sixities.
The band’s name is a reference to the 1886 Haymarket Square Riot, in which eight policemen were killed and seven workers sentenced to death.
Their album, “Magic Lantern” (originally issued in 1968) was a major hit, and is well considered by fans of psychedelic rock music even today. The music of the album was used to accompany the original Baron and Bailey Light Circus in the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. The album was reissued by Gear Fab Records in 2001.
