This CD is a brand new one, finally!
The John Slade Band did'nt released any records since 1994 giving first favor to the french fusion scene.
Dennis, fanatic from france qualified one track of "Brokenfinger" precisely with these pleasing words:
"Gentle Giant meeting Gong in Zappa's circus!"
Well, the fact is John Slade musicians love Frank Zappa's openminded music and are necessarily much inspired with it. (One song is dedicated to Frank).
Meanwhile some people should here others influences in this record:
From Gong to Amon Duul or Can...
From Mike Keneally to King Crimson...
Something of Spike Jones, Adrian belew, Pink Floyd, ELP, Joe Zawinul's Syndicate, Hermeto Pascoal, Mister Bungle, Bumblefoot Ron Thal, Primus, Lounge Lizards, Sir Millard Mulch, Sigmund Snopeck III, Raoul Petite, Mörgbl Trio, Albert Marcoeur, Magma, Paga Group, Fred Frith, Mats/Morgan, ,
Paco Sery, Mattias IA Eklhundh, Rick Wakeman,
Mbase Collective, Steve Coleman, FFF, Tribal Tech,
Lonely Bears, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Rush,
...and many more!
Now listen to this record and perhaps you'll think the John Slade Band has is own progressive fusion style?
