The Surfing Spacemen – Mental Pictures

This is CD number two from Finland's Surfing Spacemen. It's quite different from the first, more polished and farther into the go-go scene. Images of bachelor pads and space age spy films abound. Some very good writing and arranging, coupled with strong musicianship and interesting blends of sounds. Real beat and groovy.

So true, buddy. Blew me away at first hearing and is in my current top 10 pile. Love to hear the first one,too - it's a rare bird. Maybe Frisian can get it - it's from his neck of the woods.

Funny we were both doing stuff of Neil Norman - great minds and all that.

Will be poppin' over to your place soon.
