From the Aliens official site: "Armed with a bottomless bag of psychedelically inclined rock and acid dipped electronics, The Aliens bring a freedom of spirit and a certainty of intent that immediately sets them out from the current crop of guitar slingers.
These Aliens have history - between them they have been behind some of the most enthralling British music of the last decade. John Maclean and Robin Jones where members of the Beta Band. Gordon Anderson was a founding Beta Band member who went on to record two albums under the Lone Pigeon moniker."
The music presented here is like a journey through outer space destined for some groovy planet in a far off galaxy of funk. It is definitely unlike anything the Beta Band ever produced. I'm still unsure if I should merely take this output with a huge grain of salt, or if I should don a silly hat, swallow some drugs and buy a flying car to take me wherever these guys have gone.
You can hear more of the new stuff at The Aliens MySpace, or put in a pre-order and more at their official site.
