- On The Other Side Of Light by The New Alchemy
5/10 Clinton Staff review, 01 November 2013
Usually if i see the words Mats Gustafsson I run a mile. So I was half way out the building when Phil pulled me back in to inform me that Mats was just a guest on this album and that it was psych-rock from some Swedish blokes one of whom was in Soundtrack To Our Lives who, amazingly, supported Oasis on the 2003 hop through the US. I’m sure that I remember Alan McGee saying they were going to be the next Beatles or some such nonsense.
Anyway here they are, both of them have rather large beards which I’m sure in Sweden you will need in order to keep you warm. Its mainly dark swirling retro psych rock. ‘Creatures’ recalls The Doors whom with a bit of a studio sheen could have been as big as INXS, certainly their frontmen are indistinguishable. ‘On The Other Side Of Light’ sounds rather like 80’s era Pink Floyd, the type of overblown codswallop Roger Waters should be hung, drawn and quartered for.
A similar fate should be reserved for whoever decided the thing this band need more than anything is an insufferable squawking sax. ‘Silver Chain’ is more churning Doors-like misery sets the precedent for what, horrifyingly, comes next. Yes, the B side is one 24 minute psych-jam. Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve done some horrible things in this job but I’m sorry I’m not even going there.
