Praise Space Electric are the alter ego of key members of much loved UK band The Moonflowers.
Recorded in 1996 in France at the Moonflowers farm studio and mixed in Bristol, Mushroom Jazz is a highly inventive combination of laid back funky grooves, psychedelic rock and cool jazz that defies comparison. With it's roots in the underground, lounge-fusions of Bristol's funky club scene, this album is bizarre yet obvious.
Why hasn't this been done before? The answer is of course that nobody has had the nerve or the ability. The liquid guitar work of Jesse Vernon recalls Jimi Hendrix at his acid fried best whilst the stunningly competent and fluid backing of bass, drums and keyboards/synths supplied by the rest of the band is a breathtaking experience. Assorted extra musicians add woodwind, strings and vocals to add the garnish to a highly original and magically different album that will dust down those purple flares in the boutique at the back of your mind....
