‘Meltdown On The Horizon’ by Frozen Planet….1969
Frozen Planet…. 1969 are back! Back after about only half a year since their quirky ‘The Heavy Medicinal Grand Exposition’ album. This time there’s a meltdown on the horizon!
Album number seven from the trio kicks straight into top gear with the twenty two and-a-half minute track ‘Rollback’. The guitar sets the pace, and the bass and drums soon join in for another improvised, instrumental voyage. The heavy psych vibe carries strongly through this album over the three remaining tracks ‘Bellhop Shindig’, ‘Dandy Chai’ and ‘Sunset Variations’. There’s contrasting moments of wild solos and sound effects through to passages where the band will lock in on a groove. Once again, drummer Frank Attard is handling production duties at Frank Street, joined by guitarist Paul and bassist Lachlan, who bring along their collection of crazy sounds to help complete the process. ‘Meltdown On The Horizon’ is yet again another album that shows Frozen Planet…. 1969 love jamming and experimenting with sound and, with the consistent output of material, may well continue doing so until 2069.
