PATRICK CAMPBELL-LYONS: “Out on the Road” b/w “1974”: 7”

Mar 20, 2018

Is this real? I have not run into this kind of release ever coming my way in my several years of review cycles. Mr. Campbell-Lyons is an Irish-born minstrel and founding member of English “cult psych” band Nirvana from the late ‘60s. This single consists of two tracks from his latest LP, Me and My Friend, and delivers something between the Grateful Dead’s keep-on-trucking swing, sans wandering guitar noodling, and the Hair soundtrack’s less potent tracks. Think the unrealized, unshaped first Thin Lizzy LP and you’ll be in the right hookah lounge. –Matt Seward (Mighty Mouth Music, almostreadyrecords)
