Gonna have to disagree with you on that one, iconan - this is completely inspired. While there are touchstones in 60s psych, this is a completely new take on those sounds, with more unexpected harmonies, unusual guitar timbres, grimy distortion and other delightful little sounds going on than you can shake a stick at :) Who could they be compared to, sound-for-sound? Great songwriting too.
Polyphemus is the project of Brian Leary and Elvira Carrol that sings and gives the music an even more ethereal quality. Heavily inspired by Byrds and Who, The EP The Great Village Trip had the advantage of the surprise, whereas Scrapbook Of Madness (1993) and Stonehouse (1995) are less fresh and not very inspired, despite efforts Leary's. - -.-.-.-. om hari om ..... ॐ
