LDN - The Koolaid Electric Company Album Launch Party (Will Carruthers/ Kevin Shields/ BJM endorsed), We Are Animal, Circulus, Swervedriver...
Thursday 12th May 2011 - The Lexington, 96-98 Pentonville Road, London, N1 9JB
This is a very special Together We Can Walk On Water indeed. At long last The Koolaid Electric Company release their first album after miraculously becoming the UK’s most loved home-grown psychedelic shoegazers without releasing a single album. Well I say miraculously, anyone who’s seen them live knows exactly why it’s happened and knows why they’ve been the choice support or playing partners of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Black Angels, The Warlocks, Clinic, The Howling Bells, Asteroid #4, Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine) and Will Carruthers (Spacemen 3/ Spiritualized) to name but a few. In fact Marty Wilson Piper (The Church), Ricky Maymi (Brian Jonestown Massacre) and Will Carruthers all play on tracks on the new album, whilst Ryan van Kriedt of Asteroid #4 and The Dead Skeletons mastered what was already a masterwork.
The first album, Random Noises and Organised Sounds, is to be released on the 12th of May 2011.So, what’s the first thing you do when you finally make a record, get the opinions of those you respect in the industry? With heavyweight reviews already in from those lucky enough to get a pre release listen this is looking like another one of those ‘say you were there’ gigs.
"it made me think about music differently" Kevin Shields
"best psych band in the UK" Warlocks
"we have that record, we paid for it... it’s great" Black Angels
"WOW! The new album is excellent!!!!" Brian Jonestown Massacre
You’ll find the internet littered with people seeking out more information about where to find this band’s music. No mean feat for a band with no proper releases, no PR and a general ‘no bullshit’ policy. Their reputation as musicians and as a mesmerising band has brought notoriety alone.
The album they thought would never come:
