This update comes to you at least a month late, but well, I'm a bit scatterbrained as of late, and, uh, better late than never.
First off, we got an amazing review by the famed Julian Cope, he of the supremely great Head Heritage website, as well as creator of some fine musical creations himself. You can find it in the July Druidion (his monthly news update) at the Head Heritage website, located here:
Check out that website for info on tons of classics, many of which you may have never heard of. I discovered the Flower Travellin' Band thanks to Julian's review, and they are one of the greatest underground heavy 70's bands there ever was.
So, anyhow, great review, yada, yada, what's going on with us, you want to know?
Well, we recently had a pretty sweet jam session with former Qualone drummer Dwayne Jones, and with things a bit smoother between us all we hope to work together on some sort of musical project whether it be jams or some new Telestrion things. Time will tell, and time heals all wounds, I guess, but since time doesn't exist, where does that leave us?
Also along for the jam was Jonathan, the bassist from Kilstonecoat (formerly Negative Earth) and Darrell the keyboardist from Dwayne's band, Thee Crucials, who was rockin out on the Moog and the Hammond. Good times and spaced out jams were had by all, and a pretty nice recording of the preceedings was captured and thrown into the musty archive pit.
Speaking of archives, and jams, and recordings and such, we have about 10 hours of jams recorded over the past year or so that we are currently sorting out, looking for riffs and grooves to build some new tunes around. This in addition to new songs already being hashed out, such as Time & Space and The Door Is A Jar.
Once we've got a batch of material we're happy with and figure out who's going to play on what, we should be all set for album #2.
And finally, we are talking about possibly getting the Telestrion album pressed on double vinyl. Nothing is set in stone yet, but keep your eyes peeled....
