Jazz/psychedelic/prog/rock band Mysteries Of The Revolution return with a 4-track EP ‘You Turn Me On’. This is their first release since our eponymous 2007 debut album.
MOTR began as collaboration between myself, BB Davis and the late, much lamented bassist Mark Smith. Here the band also features exciting new blood with the addition of exceptional guitarist Vincenzo Lamagna and the gifted guitarist/writer and bassist Jonny Woolnough.
MOTR music evokes the spirit of ‘70’s fusion’ with influences ranging from Miles, Weather Report, Roland Kirk, Chick Corea, Coltrane, Soft Machine, Mahavishnu and Lifetime to Zappa and The Doors to neo-classicism and ‘psychedelica electronica’.
Yet in no way is MOTR on an overt nostalgia trip. Far from it. It’s more about the spirit of that era being absorbed and infused into the band’s lexicon. Sure, the influences are there but, equally, MOTR champions its own brand of sonic innovation, energy, melodic feel and attitude.
From the fizzing electro feedback which introduces the majestic ‘You Turn Me On’ to the chorale intro to BB’s beatvox flute tour-de-force ‘Pandinium’ to the nascent Sirocco which unleashes the power of ‘Pharoah’s Scribbled Phantasms’ to the soft melodic psychedelica of ‘Donna Piede Piatto’, this EP is full on with fire, passion, love n’ feel.
