A timely release, considering the recent passing of B-movie/fright flick king, Roger Corman; the cover of Dreadnaught's 'Hard Chargin'' could easily have been one of his movie posters. This disc is as twisted and uneven as the images; break-neck bouts of power pop, 10 minute Zappa freakouts and free jazz noise courtesy of guest appearances by,"a veritable s$%t-load of analog effects pedals." The terror ends on a happy note and no baby polar bears were harmed in the recording.
The Colombian band Systema Solar knows how to have a good time. You can hear it in their infectious music, an inspired collision between the Latin folk traditions of home, the tropical Caribbean influence of its northern coast, and the up-to-the-minute sounds of modern pop, hip-hop & dance. You can also see it in their numerous, colorful videos and their vigorous live show, full of psychedelic touches & eyeball-exploding costumes, as pictured on the cover of their Nacional Records debut.
A smile only his dentist could love, but the exuberance is as bright and genuine as the Colors Of Brazil by Cabruera. "A full blend of rock, funk, jazz, rap, reggae - you name it, they absorb and regurgitate it in a exhilarating, whipped-up, eclectic mix of all possible worlds. Great musical colours and imaginative production make for an up-beat, quasi-psychedelic experience." - World Music Charts Europe
