Album Notes
Soundtrack of dream-vision compositions, seamlessly interwoven tapestry of rhythm, lyric and melody. Dissonant, ethereal and infernal, mind expanding, ambient, space-rock with cinematic wordplay. The resulting mix can't be quantified. It must be heard to be experienced. In fact, it can't be heard without experiencing it.

The origins can be traced back to 1986. Sky Cries Mary recorded for the indie label New Rose Records. 1989 the group released an album titled Until the Grinders Cease.

In 1990 they released a five-song EP titled Don't Eat the Dirt. In quick succession, Anisa, Roderick, bassist Joe Howard, drummer Ben Ireland, guitarist Ivan Kral, keyboardist Gordon Raphael, and underground DJ Todd Robbins together released a second EP in 1991 entitled Exit at the Axis, on World Domination Records.

Critics: "Sky Cries Mary seems as comfortable on earth as on the astral plane...a spacey, spiritual swirl, a dream you don't want to end."

In 1993 the group released a full-length album, A Return to the Inner Experience, followed up with additional national touring and various personnel shifts that brought guitarist Michael Cozzi (formerly of Shriekback) and bassist Juano to the lineup.

This Timeless Turning, the fifth release, was recorded and released on World Domination, while the group continued its touring through America and Japan.

1994 highlights: Conan O'Brian show, the John Stewart show, the first-ever live concert on the Internet, and 15,000 miles of truck stops.1995-1996 more truck stops. In 1997 Moonbathing On Sleeping Leaves was released for Warner Brothers Records. "Interstellar starscapes fully realized, finely detailed and fantastically appointed musical collage."

1998: SCM released Fresh Fruits for the Liberation--Ten Years of Musical Compost. Michael Cozzi steps out and William Bernhard steps in.

1999: After 99 days of rain the Seeds EP is the first fully written, recorded, engineered, and mixed project from Sky Cries Mary with TR as Sky Pilot.

End of the century: A Statement from Roderick marked the end of one chapter and the beginning of the turning page:

1999-2004 Sky Cries Mary took a break from recording and touring, though each member did continue their own projects.

2004-2005: Sky Cries Mary reunites and records 5 shows in Seattle.
A double live CD entitled "Here And Now" is slated for release July 26th 2005.

Currently the band is in the studio working on new material.
