ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Electric Crayon Set is a psychedelic brainchild of the finnish musicmaker, guitarist and singer, Timo Paakko.

The band first got together as "Jennie Tropik Dream" and recorded only a demo of two songs at the start of 1999.

The next incarnation, which is also the current line-up recorded the bands debut 45: "The Hardest Thing/Demons In Disquise".

Originally intended as a demo only, the songs caught the ear of the directors at the megatrendy mod label, Detour Records, and in April 2000 it got released as a limited edition of 300 copies (DINT004).

The single was well-received all around the globe and was quickly sold out.

The band started working on the forthcoming "One Man´s Trash..." album in January 2000, the recordings spanning the whole year 2000.

It is a concept album, all songs loosely fit on a storyline and the actual tracks tied with sound-effects.

No music style is unfamiliar to this bunch: you will find fine examples of Soul, R&B, Acid-Folk and Paisley-Pop among others on this fan-tas-tic record! Power Guitar chords in the vein of the Creation and the Who, layered with Hammond B-3 and gorgeous melodies, not forgetting one of the tightest rhythm units in today´s music.

The record itself actually is a finnishamerican collaboration.Kim Hitchcock from Austin, Texas is responsible of many of the lyrics on the album, including the superb title track, and the beautiful cover painting is a lovejob of Mad John Nemec from New York City.

The initial pressing will be 500 copies, CD only.It will also be the inauguration of a new label, SoundHawk.

Finnish for Groovy
Switch on the radio and it's like a more pumped up version of 1970. I don't know if these guys have anything to say or not, but I listened to their title track twice, and that's always a good sign.

A nice combination of psychedelia, mod, glam and garage rock!
Psychedelic Rock musick reminiscent of the output of much of England
during the late 1960's by way of a group of folks from Finland in the
21st century. Such a description intrigued me, and I figured it would
either be really lousy or really great. Well, it was closer to really
great than really lousy, and I will look to these guys in the future
for
more and hope that they further polish the jewell that they've already
given us a glimpse of within this release. Exquisite guitar playing
that
sounds as if it were being done by now deceased Rolling Stones-godstar
Brian Jones. Emotive vocals in English that don't sound at all Finnish
as far as accents go. Despite the fact that they are using psychedelia
as their starting point, this still sounds original and not nostalgiac.
Of course I could compare some of what I hear to older groups (The Who,
The Small Faces, Cream, and The Seeds), but I could also tell you that
they are just as deserving of your attention as some of the current
groups making musick today (Spiritualized, International Noise
Conspiracy, The Super Furry Animals, and Gorky's Zygotic Mynci come
immeadiately to mind). The nice combination of psychedlia, mod, glam
and
garage rock that The Electric Crayon Set manages to brew together is
something rare these days, and therefore is deserving of your
attention.
Dagobert's Revenge readers will also appreciate seeing the inside liner
note art of three Templar knights, although I am still not sure why or
how or what they have to do with The Electric Crayon Set's musick.

Sincerely,

James P. bergman
