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.

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…

New Biography on The Cars Singer/Bassist Benjamin Orr by Vermont Writer Joe Milliken to be Published November 2018!

Bellows Falls, VT – Veteran music journalist Joe Milliken recently announced a publishing deal with the Lanham, Maryland-based publisher Rowman & Littlefield Publishers to produce his first book, a biography about the late Benjamin Orr. Orr was the co-founder, co-lead singer, and bassist for the platinum-selling rock band The Cars. Titled Let’s Go! Benjamin Orr and The Cars, a release date is set for November 15, 2018.

Often considered the band’s heartthrob, Orr possessed an incredible voice, diverse musical talent and rare stage presence, all balanced by a magnetic, yet enigmatic personality, striking good looks, and a relentless determination to reach rock stardom. Born Benjamin Orzechowski (aka “Benny Eleven Letters”) and raised in the Cleveland suburb of Parma Heights, Orr was, prior to becoming a world-famous rock star with The Cars, a “teen star” as a house band musician for the nationally syndicated television show Upbeat.

A few years later Ben met his musical partner and …
