Legendary Rockers Electric Prunes Release New Album Feedback


January 29, 2007--Los Angeles. CA-- When was the last time you heard music that was indefinable, a blast from the past yet modern at the same time? Ever play a CD you knew instantly was something out of the ordinary; something special you would insatiably crave forever more? Welcome to a day in the life of an Electric Prunes fan. Welcome to Feedback, lust in a long line.

The Electric Prunes have produced three new CDs since resuming recording and playing live a few years back-Artifact, California, and now, their latest, Feedback. The echoes of the past material reverberate through every innovative cut on this new offering. It is pure unadulterated PruneTwang (which coincidentally is their indie label name) from start to finish. This band has always dodged classification. They live and play outside the box. With Feedback they continue their legacy of playing what they want, how they want.

Feedback is a visceral connection from the past to the present. And, thanks to the presence of original Prunes, James Lowe, Mark Tulin, and Ken Williams, all of garage rock’s rough edges remain intact. Refusing to cede anything to the passage of time, each track is full of fuzz, tremolo, vibrato, and attitude; a classic Electric Prunes recording. This is the best garage, psych, twang, blues, and rock music your ears could possibly absorb in one sitting. Be warned, Feedback takes advanced listening.

Each of the 10 cuts on this CD offers an individual and unique Electric Prune vision of their world. Firmly rooted in the past but with an eye to the future the band proves that a rock heart and spirit are timeless. “Too Much To Dream” (1966) and “Morhpine Drip” (2007) reveal tremolo never sleeps. The quirky “African Bees “ (2006) shows the same sense of the ironic that marked “Dr. Do-Good “ (1967); the iconoclastic “Batch Of Violins” (2007) offers a tip of the hat to “Sold To The Highest Bidder” (1966). Yet, while embracing their musical past, they are not content to rest on history. “I’ll Give You Feed Back”, “Itzomad” and “Flying Blind” would be innovative and enjoyably disturbing even if you had never heard “Get Me To The World On Time” (1966).

Many of the bands from the 60’s are stuck there. Feedback is auditory evidence that The Electric Prunes continue to create, grow, and transform. If you are already a fan of the band, you will not be disappointed. If you are not a fan yet, you will be. Visit the Electric Prunes website for all kinds of swag and listen to their cool jukebox for a taste of the legend. Then, get Feedback, lust in a long line.

Rock Review: Aunt Mary-New Dawn

Release Date: 12th February 2016 Label: Wind-Up Website
Aunt Mary, as a name, somehow suggests an “older” band and it came as no real surprise to find that they are a Norwegian prog band from the 70’s. The band were considered by many to be one of the best prog bands in Norway with their brand of music a mixture of heavy hard rock tunes plus clear indications of a more symphonic nature, although that only really showed itself on their 3rd, and last, studio album, Janus, in 1973. Last that is, until now, with the release of New Dawn. This would appear to be an apt title for a release which follows 24 years after an album of blues covers, released in 1992. 

At their height, Aunt Mary were “up there” with the likes of Deep Purple, Ten Years After, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and many more. After the release of Janus in 1973, the band split up but did a few sporadic appearances, as well as releasing the blues covers album mentioned earlier.

3 years ago, the Norwegian guitar legend and producer, …

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Jazz Fusion-Rock-Pop-Funk Review: Project Grand Slam-Trippin’

Release Date: June 29, 2018 Label: Cakewalk Records Website
This will be my sixth voyage into the world of Project Grand Slam (PGS). So, what is this experience going to be like this time? I would expect the same great combination of jazz, rock, funk, and pop that I always enjoyed.

Just so you all know PGS is: Robert Miller (bass), Mario Castro (saxophones), Bayden Goyo (keyboards), Joel E. Mateo (drums), Guillermo Barron Rios (percussion), Tristan Clark (guitar) and the beautiful Ms. Ziarra Washington (vocals).

So, now we are Trippin’ into 2018 with PGS. And the first track titled “1972” was like turning on the radio and hearing the Average White Band or Tower of Power. Yes sir, on the AM dial, it came blaring through back in those days. 

The title track is a real gas too. This number has some great sax from Castro and a killer rhythm section courtesy of Miller and Mateo. It shines the spotlight on them clear and bright. Let me tell you, those two are like the dynamic duo, kind of like a p…
