sun dial Other Way Out (LP, £14.50)label: Cherry Red Phonograph
LP + printed inner sleeve with lyrics. When Gary Ramon's neo-psychedelic Sun Dial debuted in 1990 with Other Way Out, it was almost unanimously lauded by fans and press. Taking the late sixties psychedelic approach of bands like Led Zeppelin, Hendrix and the Beatles, the LP sounded like one of the great lost albums from that era. The instrumentation was also a throwback to the period with crisp electric guitar backed by Turkish talking drums, bamboo flute, and Tibetan bells. Now, 20 years after the albums release, it is still cited as a neo-psych classic. Their next album, Reflecter (1992) was even more successful, reaching the Indie Top 5 and prompting a deal with Beggars Banquet. Ramon has continued to release albums under the Sun Dial moniker, with his most recent release being a self-titled LP released in March of this year. Tracks - Side A: 1. Plains Of Nazca 2. Exploding In Your Mind 3. Magic Flight Side B: 1. She's Looking All Around 2. World Without Time 3. Lorne Blues.
