WHITE MANNA – ” Evil “

When you first listen to ‘Pan’ you could be forgiven for thinking that it is just another space rock album. You would be mistaken. This is an album with teeth, real punk teeth. In the way that The Seeds, The Stooges and The Damned have teeth; something which is particularly evident on ‘Dunes I’, with its humongous all destroying riff’ and the magnificent ‘Evil’, both of which rock out with real attitude and power. For me ‘Pan’ comes together most forcefully with ‘Beta Travellers’ which does not so much fuse as slams together the space rock and punk elements to produce a ride that is so exhilarating as it builds and builds towards a climax that leaves you wanting more…which is exactly what you get with ‘Eshra’ a superb track with its wah wah immediacy and drone. In a sense there is nothing new in this album. The elements that it draws from are hardly innovative in the canon of post-blues music, but there is an alchemy at work here that has brought together the familiar and created something totally thrilling. This is a fucking great rock album.
