Radio Moscow - The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz
Oh yeah, the retro rockwagon rolls on with this Iowa trio of authentic psychedelic worshippers before the alter of Blue Cheer volume and rip-it-up guitar, bass and drums. Where The Answer ably ape Led Zep and Free, Radio Moscow confidently tread the Sabbath and already invoked Blue Cheer route, Parker Gibbs scorching out wah-wah and other pylon-carried guitar solos. There's the blues too, as in the harmonica driven Creepin', fourth track on this consistently thumping gem. Instrumental Densaflorativa is a drum'n'guitar interlude that ends on a psychedelic vocalplay with sound effects before segueing into the powerful rock track I Don't Need Nobody. If you like it heavy and hard, knock yourself out with this rock-resurrection blast from the glorious past.
