Product Description

Product Description

The debut album from psychedelic country-garage pioneers, The Dials. ***Winners of The Fopp New Music Award***

About the Artist

The Dials are winners of The Fopp New Music Award which recognises "the best in creative and innovative music happening in the UK today". Formed in Brighton, UK, they seamlessly take on board the best psychedelic garage, country, folk and soul influences from the last 60 years and owe as much to Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd and Johnny Cash as they do to The Faces and Nick Drake. Despite a huge range of influences, the band occupy a space that is all their own and produce instant but sometimes strange classics. BBC Radio 2 s Mark Lamarr is a huge fan and describes them as "Amazing, a band doing something right ".

I heard The Dials in session on Mark Lamarr and persuaded them to send me an advance copy. I wasn't disappointed - this is the kind of album you can't play without people asking you about it. The album kicks off with a fabulous surf instrumental then takes in everything from Psychedelic rock (The Coracle), Mod Soul Music (Where Did Our Love Go?), pastoral folk (Willow Craft Centre) and, erm, free jazz! (Me Soh Fah). Absolutely flipping essential, they're going to be HUGE.

i came across this band from listening to Mark Lamarr's Radio 2 show. Wow! I've become a little cynical about bew music recently (is no-one doing anything interesting?) but this comes from right out of nowhere... yes, you can hear bits of Link Wray, early Pink Floyd and lots more besides, but it's full of completly original, unforgettable tunes. It's also one of the most eclectic things I've ever heard ... I can't say enough good things about it (and that is so unlike me)

This is an album for music lovers.
I can hear elements of Love,hippy era Grateful Dead,Ronnie Lane and early Floyd to name just a few.Christ "Hello,My name's Jesus and i'm an alcoholic" sounds like a great lost track from seminal UK country scensters The Rockingbirds!
Despite the influences the music has its foot firmly in the future and sounds like nothing else round at the moment.
Do yourself a favour and grab a copy of one of 2007's most interesting releases.

When it doesn't sound like the soundtrack to a Spaghetti Western it sounds like a cut-up and glued together copy of "Forever Changes". Track two, "We've seen the two face..." is "A House is not a Motel". "The Coracle" is in fact "The Good Humour man...". It's not exactly subtle!

It should go without saying that it's not as good as "Forever Changes". The sound is pretty nice, but it's not very engaging, and there's nothing lyrically to keep your interest to the end of the album. The vocals are pretty weak, and are mixed to be inoffensive.

BTW for some reason they've been allowed to call themselves "The Dials" despite a previous girl-band punk-pop group of the same name. I smell a law-suit.

Debut of the year 19 Mar. 2007

Abolutely love this. It's occupies the strange space between The Faces, Johnny Cash and Nick Drake. I haven't been this impressed my new music in such a long time.
Attention Cramps Fans Bryan Gregory From The Cramps !!! 13 Nov. 2010
By SpongeBob-666 - Published on Amazon.com
Wow, I just found out this is the late Bryan Gregory's band after he left The Cramps. Very cool stuff. The first song "Feedback" is classic Cramps style craziness (seems to be about taking LSD!) with a totally psychedelic guitar break. If you remember Bryan's playing on songs like Garbage Man and Human Fly you know what I mean. I really liked the other tracks too, very good production and lots of heavy fuzzed out guitar. The Dials featured a girl singer named Andrella, so right away it's going to be kinda different from The Cramps, but for me it was still good stuff. I'm a big Cramps fan so I did some internet searching after hearing about this release and there's a web site for the band where you can download a companion booklet (for free!) that accompanies this release with lots of cool pictures and information get it here:
