Special cassette-only release, limited edition of 50 copies, hand-painted sleeves, includes the first ep (LTJ-96).
"Okay, this next record described should really best suit those rock'n'roll fans who require the jammy fingers of the artist all over their releases. And boy do the Rrreverberationsss permeate the very essence of their debut self-produced album MUSIC FOR PSYCHEDELIC PEOPLE, even the Dark Side Of Jackson Pollock-style hand splattered record sleeve itself clinging to my counter top and leaving skid marks across my iBook. Nice. Even better, the music contained herein is half-an-hour of truly exhilarating space-rock somewhat in that rented ranch style achieved by Simply Saucer. But as the Rrreverberationsss have no real drummer, they achieve their fabulous epic quality not through their unique riffery, but because the absence of any real rhythm section means no fucker's backing up the clichê. Sweet. And it's that which always keeps these gentlemen so fascinating and so very far from being a Rock Band. Check them out at www.roeshad.com, it's a singularly delightful sound."
"There's no prizes for guessing which particular musical seam these guys are mining given the title, but it's probably worth mentioning that the sub-genre in question is emphatically the scuzzier end of the psychedelic street, with 'The Cloud Doctrine' and 'We Killed the Sky' in particular containing echoes of Mick Farren and the Deviants in full cry, scattering pills 'n' bottles of booze as they careen down Ladbroke Grove in a day-glo van scaring the freaks with their political antics and noisy guitar posturing.
"We're a band of long-time friends, all veterans of the 80s psych scene in Madison and Milwaukee, Wisconsin," they tell me [specifically, Dave Junker from Madison's freak-beat legends The Romulans; he also played with John Frankovic of Plasticland. Gunnar Hedman was formerly with The Neglected Stairways and Milwaukee's premiere underground noise band the Parabells, and Peder Hedman with Liquid Pink, Tweaker and Los Monos] "Every few years we congregate at a space in Austin, Texas for all-night jams. We've boiled down the recordings to a potent mixture of nine songs and we hope you enjoy them..."
I most certainly do! Other favourites include 'Electric Witchcraft' with its blistering guitar break towards the end, and the floating, hallucinatory chant of 'Spirit Channel'. This is an album that's obviously been crafted for no better reason than the sheer joy of making music, and you can't fault the band for that. 45/50, and that's not just the number of the disc they kindly sent me."
