A quick swipe of the anti-punk, new-wave-psych "paisley underground" scene from the early 1980's, this is a pretty good, and almost totally forgotten album.......I do receommend giving it a shot. From 1982, Darius and the Magnets were singer/guitarist/sitarist/percussionist Darius Degher, bassist/vocalist/keyboardist Christopher Samu, and Drummer Leland Waters......retro-1960's "trippy" sitar-driven psych, this is either enjoyable or humorous dependant upon your mood. "In the Valley of Dreams" (1982) is I think the only album the band put out under this name, I think there may have been an EP also, and Degher did some solo work as well as work with some other bands.......reminds me of maybe, Pearls Before Swine or someone like that (better than them actually), hypnotic hippie stuff, you'll love it or hate it
IN THE VALLEY OF DREAMS-01 Valley of Dreams/02 Unusual Girl/03 Stonesteps/04 Team Player (Can't Ya See)/05 Don't You Feel Like Me/06 Riders/07 Number Two
Just feeling in the mood to put up something else tonight, and sure as hell chose an oddball-eccentric choice. Please don't skip this one, lovers of psych, new wave, or hippie/nuggets type stuff. No question worth a listen!
