Album Notes
This CD screams "We are not from Seattle!"

An Electric Prunes slash and burn session that twists the dates on your calendar back to the California of the 60's. From the minute you "come flying", as the lyric suggests on the introduction, this seminal band delivers 13 searing new psych tracks laced with their trademark fuzz, twang, tremelo and mayhem. For those that thought the 60's were over.....hang onto your wah wah!

"This is the fourth CD we never got to make..." the band pouts........

Not some rehash or re-creation of a time past, this is the real thing played as only the "real people" can play it. Deceptively simple songs revert to the glorious "riff", so long ignored, that, combined with a sense that each track is actually taking place in some cosmic vortex of the past, becomes the transportation vehicle to the California of another time.

It's like falling through a hole in the sky and landing on 1967. I mean ON 1967. Smell the commune, naked and they dance!

Moby Grape guitarist Peter Lewis joins the band for a vintage 60's fruit compote on more than one tune including some stunning guitar work on "Rickenbacker 12 String", an ode to the social contribution of the Byrds and that very special "California made" 12 string guitar.

The song images pasted behind the abstract prune guitar artwork by The Fuzztones' Rudi Protrudi range from a crazy touring musician losing his pants in France on "49 SONGS", to a guy that can't leave his flipped out girlfriend because he just tattooed her name on his bum on "ROSY made me crazy". Escapist Surfing to the Movie Business, Famous Friends to an ass kicking Tidal Wave, this CD leaves no doubt in what is left of anyone's mind that the Electric Prunes were, and are, THERE. This is the Electric Prunes landing area. This IS the Electric Prunes landing area.

Electric Prunes California is Hotter than the Sun
Electric Prunes California:
For those of you not familiar with the Elelctric Prunes, GET HIP. And all of you original prunes fans,if you are holding back from your purchase, because you think they may have lost something Fear Not.I bought this album not expecting to much. After its arrival, It has not left my cd player.This album contains music to charish and enjoy, for almost any music genre fan. California, has some of the strongest song writing I have heard in the past decade.And I am an avid music fan. People don't deprive yourselfs of this soul healing music. California will offer you what ever you are looking to get out of it. Trippy vibes and carefree thoughts, Gloomy having a bad day, but its getting better vibes, or a perfect little Pop Jem with enough psychadelic changes to make you see Purple elephants. What ever you are looking for can be found on this record. From start to finish its a Masterpiece. Dare I say Brilliant.

I recomend this album for all age groups. As long as they enjoy quality music. For the cost of the record, I couldnt take my wife to diner at Mickey D's.. Do yourselfs a favor and get undone and rewired with the Elelctric Prunes California.
