This is a site where I post reviews of CDs, DVDs, LPs, and concerts. I have been writing music reviews on and off since 1984. I ran a heavy metal fanzine from 1984-1988 called Metal Madness and have been a staff writer for Aural Innovations for many years. I have also contributed to Chrohinga Well (RIP), Bad Acid (RIP), Lowcut (RIP), Roadburn and a number of other zines as well. I recently moved to Portugal so please request the new address and do not send any music to Denmark anymore. Tak..
Fantay is lead by Pieter Mush, who plays the synthesizer and writes and
composes all the songs in this band, a bit like the Ed Wynne of Ozric
Tentacles, except Pieter is not a guitarist. Anyway, their new CD features 10
tracks of instrumental progressive space rock with a lot of influences coming
from Ozric Tentacles. The band have over the years created their own version of
this type of sound and the CD has a great sound production and many fabulous
songs to get lost in like the opening Journey to Earth. The band experiments
with some different instruments for instance on Aargh there is harp, bagpipes
and acoustic guitars. Cowdians features Joachim Wanayn on banjo! Like the old classic
OT sounds, there is flute on most tracks. I have really enjoyed this record a
lot and if you like the Ozrics and want to hear a band that plays a great
tribute to the band, using many of Ed’s genius ideas and themes but throwing in
a few unique twists of their own, check this out..
