We just heard the sad news of the passing of Bob Thompon. A composer, arranger, and orchestra leader who scored film and television soundtracks, and wrote commercial jingles. He was a leading exponent of termed Space Age Bachelor Pad Music. Check out this remembrance of Bob on the Cocktail Nation web site HERE.
Today, May 10th, is Donovan’s Birthday! In the revolutionary musical atmosphere of the second half of the 1960s, no artist embodied the era’s spirit of creative freedom and freewheeling self-invention more strongly than Donovan.
Today May 2nd is Link Wray’s Birthday! The rawboned and ravaged sound of fretboard pioneer Link Wray single-handedly made the guitar the weapon of choice for a whole generation of teenagers! Check out Link on Sundazed here!
In the mountain of discs that come across our desks, occasionally there is a band that completely captivates us and makes our hearts pump. And bet – we’re positively thrilled to have The See See as Sundazed artists. New single available in two weeks, and coming soon, a jaw-dropping See See anthology combining their finest UK releases with new tracks unavailable elsewhere!!!
As a champion of quality music, Sundazed Music is incredibly honored to present The See See’s debut U.S. single, “The Rain & The Snow” b/w “Snowdrops,” on living, breathing 7″ vinyl. The A-side, “The Rain & the Snow,” is a melancholic, gray sky entreaty to a fading love, laced with electric guitar filigrees, insistent organ and a stoic drumbeat bearing witness to heartbreak. The instrumental B-side, “Snowdrop,” takes the A-side’s melody and quickens its pulse, coursing it through tremelo, fuzz and reverb in a dub-like delirium!
