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:

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

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

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

SIDESTEPS
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’.

Look at that bloody album cover.  With artwork like that, you’d think you would know exactly what you’re getting into, but Sendelica have plenty of curveballs and knucklers for your psychedelic taste buds.  Yes, there are massive guitar riffs worthy of  a thousand soaked panties, but Sendelica gets super cerebral and adds elements of jazz and world music to their gurgling rock cauldron to send you spiraling into the clouds. Saxophones, funked out bass lines, noise elements…you name it, Sendelica mixes it in.

As usual the box set is very limited…..The album is due for release early August 2015 on the German based SUNHAIR RECORDS LABEL…
