As I chow down on a bunch of grapes to boost me Vit C levels & get shot of this horrid cold I caught off some disease ridden vermin in London village, I feel inclined to post this comment about The Bernard Cakes. Sorry I got some grape spaff in my eye. The Besnard Lakes have a 12" out on Jagjaguwar. 'Casino Nanaimo' is psych-jangle tripped out shit like The Super Furries stuck in a rabbit hole culminating in a kinda like southern fried space rock with the Bee-Gees on vocals. What is it with all this droney sub Hawkwind/Grateful Dead stuff at the momen, all spliced with a kinda driving Krautrock groove. I's the early 70s AGAIN folks. All i've packed today is T-Rex 7"s, Australia's current big export is Wolfmother & even Phil is sporting a huge afro & purple loon pants from Venus. Shitting flip. I'm gonna drop some LSD & go climb a tree man. The B-side, an alt version of Devestation is like Black Sabbath covered by Flowchart. A little bit similar to the likes of Oneida. The vocals sound like George Harrison's demon mushroom gobbling pixie son. It's all incredibly cosmic head muzak duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude. Phil sez Earlies. Pink Floyd & Spiritualised. Who they??
