Treacle People "s/t" CD
On their analog-recorded debut album the quintet Treacle People very impressively and with lot of love to detail revive the spirit, musicianship and passion of their British idols from the early 70s. The eight original compositions were recorded in 2 sessions live in studio and reflect many-faceted, progressive, psychedelic and classical hard rock. Their wide musical spectrum presents expressive, emotional and striking vocals (Cruelest Secret, Zero Gravity), atmospheric but also aggressive guitarsolos (Neptune's Kiss, Anschlag I), a pulsating, excessive-rocking hammond-organ (Anschlag I, Last Song), warm and dynamic hammond/piano melodies (Cruelest Secret, Moonchild), and driven by a powerful-grooving bass and soulful hypnotic drums. Treacle People began 1998 in Worms (South-Western part of Germany).
They are inspired by the early 70's, the revolutionary time period when youth celebrated musical excesses creatively. Classically trained they practiced themselves in the works of UFO, Deep Purple, Led zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, E.L.P, King Crimson and Pink Floyd. Thus originated from experimental and endless jam-sessions, technically polished rock songs with something of their own appeal. Live on stage they perform their own material excessively as well as performing highlights from rock history: "In a Gadda da Vida" (Iron Butterfly), "Black Night" (Deep Purple) and Pink Floyd´s complete "Live at Pompeii". The CD edition appears in the triple-fold digipack with 12 p. booklet, excellent artwork.
