London Underground - London Underground (2000)
The debut album from this Italian band.
The band is a trio with a lineup of clavinet, banjo, piano, hammond organ, moog, mellotron, bass, drums, percussion and vocals.
Four extra musicians did pedal guitars, guitars and strings arrangements.
This band has been kicking around the scene for a while. They have released four albums and I got three of them to review now. I get the feeling from this, their debut album that this will be a pleasure.
The cover art-work says almost everything about the music. Old style psych from the last years of the 1960s.
References are The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Birth Control. Add some The Moody Blues and beat influences too and you get this album.
The music is very stylish and it feels like it was composed and recorded in 1968. But it is not.
The sound quality is very good though.
The songs are pretty slow and they tries to be catchy.
In this, they fails as the quality is not the best. It is still an album I rate between decent and good. It is an more than acceptable debut album.
