THE GREAT POP SUPPLEMENT

Saddar Bazaar

Seventh Valley

    After years of radio silence, 2016 finally sees the re-emergence of Bristol’s mighty, cult instrumental sitar/psych combo Saddar Bazaar; as they release their long-awaited third studio album "Seventh Valley", on the esteemed Great Pop Supplement label.

    “Seventh Valley” showcases the band’s dynamically evolving, heavy sound orbiting around the sitar/guitar fusion of the Hyder brothers and driven by new drummer Thomas Elgie (Gonga). Recorded in Stokes Croft, Bristol by Latch Manghat (producer of Taint and The Heads) the album incorporates repetitive drones and riffs, dreamy blues-ragas and head-spinning psych-outs.

    First emerging during the 1990s Saddar Bazaar secured their reputation as Britain’s foremost purveyors of psychedelic sitar blues-rock with the release of two acclaimed albums (on the legendary Delerium label) “The Conference of the Birds” – (described by Mojo as; ‘a haunting hybrid of transcendental ragas and psyched-out slide guitar’) - followed by “Path of the Rose“.

    Further exclusive recordings with post-rock underground labels Enraptured and Earworm (including a split album with Detroit’s revered drone/space maestros Windy & Carl) reflected the band’s inexorable drive for sonic experimentation.

    Saddar Bazaar’s immersive live performances have been developed by performing alongside artists such as Bevis Frond, Porcupine Tree, Gong, Silver Apples, Damo Suzuki and Dylan Carson. The band’s ongoing sound experiments have generated stunning studio collaborations with the likes of Solitude Aeturnus, Bark Psychosis and Cathedral.

    With the completion of their third studio album “Seventh Valley“, Saddar Bazaar have once again emerged, sitar in hand to transform the contemporary tapestry of psychedelic rock.

    Mike & Cara Gangloff

    Durang‘s Hornpipe / Rake And Rambling Boy

      Having released records on The GPS previously as part of the late great Jack Rose’s backing band and The Black Twig Pickers- (as well as cutting their cloth as part of the mighty Pelt), Mike and Cara release a great double ‘A’ side for March here in an edition of 500.

      “Durang’s Hornpipe” is spectacularly underpinned by the majestic drone of Cara’s Shruti box, with Mike on banjo and fiddle and is backed by the peak and fall and drone pulse of the Shruti once again on an incredible reworking of the standard “Rake and Ramblin’ Boy”.

      A beautiful 45, worth it alone for those moments where both voices collide on the flip- it won’t hang around long and is dressed in ace printed inside and out sleeve and on dark cherry wax. Pressing of 500 only.

      The See See

      Once Forever And Again

        Hot on the heels of the recent 'must have' collection of sold out 45s and rarities on the mighty Sundazed label, The See See return with their third studio full length in October via The GPS on vinyl and on CD and download via Dell'Orso.

        Another fantastic collection of bittersweet sunshine psych pop nuggets, layered with the bands' killer ear for a vocal harmony and hooks aplenty. Passing nods to Big Star, Later era Byrds / Burritos and the 'Paisley Underground' sounds of the great Rain Parade and Long Ryders amongst others, the set doesn't disappoint and is sure to build on the acclaim and quick sell out status of all of their previous output.

        Admired by the likes of Sid Griffin, Ric Menck and Norman Blake to name a few, the band have recently collaborated with longterm fans such as Jim Noir and The Coral, from whom Nick Power penned the great “Jenny Said” from the set here.
