Psychedelic Breakfast
This is rather good. Fantastic in fact.

After the Range Brothers – Jim and Mark – had concluded their tenure in “The Snarls” they rang Spencer Birtwistle – who had coincidentally left “The Blimp” and then recruited bassist Mike Cloud to create a new band. A combination of Spencer’s garage and recording whizz Nick Warren’s house was the studio and with a great selection of songs they have put together a wonderful album. They have been together for about a year and the developing chemistry of the band is evident.

There is a mix of hard driving soul-rock, elegaic country-rock, psychedelia, raw blues and pure south-Manc melody. Nick Warren was clear that the recording concentrated on the getting vocals as a key part of the sound, and the voices are great, but that should deflect from the great musicianship – which starts with Spen’s trademark busy drum sound and a solid bass delivery from Cloud and is completed with the interlocking guitars of the brothers.

On the one hand you have quiet reflective melodies, and on the other mid-tempo soulful workouts like the memorable “On my mind again” with a great beat from Spen and surging guitar underpinning a great vocal , and beside that fast paced and well constructed tunes like “National Disaster”, and soaring anthems like “Where did all the people go?”

The influences on this music are pretty apparent with clear nods to some of the key bands of the last 50 years but there is a fresh approach here which derives from the well crafted songs – the beautiful “Stars Fall” is a case in point, with its haunting melody busy rhythms and spacey psychedelic guitars. Mike Cloud’s “Strong As You” is immense,

echoing Buffalo Springfield at their most melodic, but also encapsulating the drama of a Springsteen epic. Jim Range’s treatment of the blues standard “The Train Song” is replete with harp, a distressed blues guitar sound to die for, and a sound that conjurs up the tumbleweed blowing over a dusty desert highway.

Even Nick’s dog – Bert – gets in on the act on the pop-tastic ”Time to Time”, and “Stars Fall” gets a spacy remix as the closing unlisted hidden track at the conclusion of the disc.

The album’s opener “White Stag” is a stunner and sets the bar for what’s to follow. The band’s signature sound of melody combined with a strong rock sound is instantly memorable.

You won’t waste your time if you set aside some time to listen to this album……14 great tracks and not a dodgy one among them!

They play Salford Music Festival on 10th & 12th September and support The Fall on the latter gig.
