jjwhetsell Stormbringer is just so damn epic! Give us the rest of At the Tomb Factory on vinyl please. Just a 45 with that live version of Free and The Whole Day as the b-side would be amazing to add to my collection. Even my 7 year old son loves this Amnesia Haze album I purchased. He calls it "The Nature Hand." Y'all rock! Favorite track: Stormbringer.

Nerve Salad The best album yet from these psych/soul masters. 100% agree with Paul Rote on this one. Groovy, funky, and fuzzy. Fine tunes, indeed.

about

The Velcro Lewis Group is Earth's premier acid-rock, space-funk septet. The band twists the aesthetics of Funkadelic, Hawkwind, Temptations, and Black Sabbath into their own living -breathing planet of sound. Lead by Hawk Colman, the brother with the 5 octave range, honky tonk veteran, Lawrence Peters singing bass and scrubbing the washboard, and blind growler/Moog-eater, Andy Slater, people can't deny the commands and demands shouted from the stage. Travers Gauntt's Skylab crashing guitars hug and hurt, Alison Hunger's psychic Theremin dances and dives, and Halden Spoonwood's bass playing has more pocket than a pair of overalls, revealing the band to be a source of both confusion and totality.
Once it becomes possible to drive an Impala through space and time the Velcro Lewis Group Will be hot glued into the tape deck.

On Amnesia Haze, the group set out to deal with some serious shit.
The band entered the studio 2 days after the Presidential election. With disgust and uncertainty driving the session the lyrics had changed and the performances intensified. What was once abstractly political had become unapologetically direct. Racial violence, gun violence, police violence, street harassment, xenophobia, fascism, feminism, every point of rage and discourse the country was feeling. Patriarchal Reptile, a free-noise piece voiced by Theremin player Alison Hunger, was recorded and added to the album last minute as a response to the thin-skinned gynophobiac set to lead our country. Amnesia Haze is a cry for unity and awakening from a band sick of fucking around.
