Sendelica paid scant regard to my suggestions as to the kind of thing that would fit comfortably within the open-prison confines of the box-set and decided to take things into their own hands by producing a 21 minute version of Donna Summer’s synth-drenched 70s disco anthem (that’s a phrase i’ve never thought I’d type); even the mighty Moroder couldn’t manage more than an 8 minute mix – ha!
The motorik rhythm remains but Sendelica introduce Eastern influences and field sounds in this intrumental tour de force.”
an excerpt from Sendelica’s 21 minute cover – taken from Fruits de Mer Records’ 4LP monster of a box-set – what happens when a record label with more time than sense asked eight bands to produce sidelong covers of tracks from the 60s/70s – either epic songs in their own right, or songs that they could use as launchpads for something….BIG?

The whole thing is called ‘SIDE EFFECTS’, and it contains four single albums:

The Soft Bombs – Echoes (originally by Pink Floyd)
Arcade Messiah – Four Horsemen (Aphrodite’s Child)

The Bevis Frond – China (Electric Sandwich)
Wreaths – Sundown (Gordon Lightfoot)

Superfjord – CTA-102 (The Byrds)
The Luck Of Eden Hall – Starship Trooper (Yes)

Julie’s Haircut – Shhh/Peaceful (Miles Davis)
Sendelica – I Feel Love (Donna Summer)

The set features…
– two of FdM’s most popular bands (Sendelica and The Luck Of Eden Hall)
– the legendary Bevis Frond
– two occasional visitors to FdM Towers in Superfjord and Julie’s Haircut (who have contributed stunning recordings to ‘Coltrane’ and ‘strangefish’ respectively)
-three new artists – The Soft Bombs and Wreaths from the USA, and Arcade Messiah (aka John Bassett) from the UK.

The music ranges from psychedelia to progressive rock and back again, taking in krautrock, jazz-rock and…..Donna Summer(I knew it was a mistake inviting Pete Bingham and co to get involved).
The Bevis Frond track appeared in a severely-edited form on the FdM ‘Head Music’ double LP a few years ago, but this will be the full, 23 minute+ version, while everything else is completely ‘new’.
