*************************

Chronicles of Bubbledroid is a collection of instrumental tunes we’ve been hashing around for a few years. We’ve tried to capture the sound of the Seventies Prog Rock era by using a mixture of some classic equipment, while using mostly modern instrumentation. For melody and leads, we used a lot of heavy, swirly B3 sounds, and wah-wah electric guitar. For embellishment there’s a little acoustic guitar, piano, cheap synthesizer, and backwards fuzz guitar. The rhythm section is comprised of electric bass (pick action only, no slapping), bass organ, and bubble drums. And as an added bonus, we’ve included some tape hiss at times to “round out” the sound.

The songs, for the most part, deliver a driving bottom-end crunch, interspersed with some lighter passages and weird bits. Take Arthur Brown’s Kingdom Come (without the vocals), throw in a touch of Gentle Giant, and a dab of Zappa and you get what we were striving for.

Songs like Frog Boy, Broken Mirror with Sand, and Dry Suites 94 integrate dissonant themes, whereas Saturn’s Orbit and Time Sun have a more Hard Rock feel--minus the odd time signatures. Groovey Paste, which is in its own category, sounds a bit like a British 1967 hairspray commercial.

Give it a listen. And keep in mind, the best part of the Polysorbate Masquerade Band is: It's completely instrumental!

Awesome Flashback into the early days of prog!
Can't believe this one isn't getting more press! Who are these guys? Cool keyboard tones, they must be using vinatge equipment... arent they? I'll buy anything these guys put out! Gentle Giant meets Genesis, meets Colliseum meets Atomic Rooster... all in one song!

Strong, punchy melodies and authentic sound
These guys really have the 'prog rock' thing down. The sound is right, the instruments are well chosen (I love the gritty organ) and the compositions are complex and catchy, both rhythmically and melodically. Like the previous reviewer, I have been a fan of prog rock for many years and this is a very satisfying album. Hard to believe it's only 2 guys and a 'drum machine'! Great musicianship and imagination. Well done and would love to hear more.
