From the edge of Germany’s Black Forest to the English hamlets of Dorset, THE DANDELION SET make psyched-out, blow-your-mind sound nuggets with the (un)self-conscious freedom of the 70's. Drawing on library music, radiophonics & Krautrock, the band produce a heady mix of psychedelia, prog, folk & electronics with beautiful sounds created on harpsichord, 12 string and acoustic guitars, electric bass, moog, woodwinds, autoharp with fat beats & tripped-out effects. Sleeve notes by legendary writer & graphic novelist ALAN MOORE
This incredible debut album also features vocals & sleeve notes by legendary writer + graphic novelist ALAN MOORE (V For Vendetta, The Watchmen, Swamp Thing, The Killing Joke, League Of Extraordinary Gentleman).
Produced by GLYN BUSH (Lightning Head, Rockers Hi-Fi, The Black Albumen, Magic Drum Orchestra) & lifelong friend PK CHOWN the album reflects their love of a huge range of musical styles, with the emphasis on un-formularized tunes & originality over familiarity. This is a very special record that we expect to sell fast ! Each release format contains a unique combination of tracks, rarities & exclusive material.
