Aliens - Astronomy for Dogs (EMI)
First album by three ex-Beta Band members sees them soak up 60s influences which they wear not only on their sleeves but coats, trousers and shoes! First track Setting Sun is reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix doing All Along Watchtower while others sound very Beatles, Doors or Spirit-like. When not turning back the clock 40 years they sound like a continuation of the Beta Band which is no bad thing for such an underrated act.. While there is plenty of derivatives, its an interesting melting pot which draws the listener in. As Alice said - curiouser and curiouser..
