Returning back to the Fruits de Mer, the label have announced the first happenings for the coming 2017 season, strictly speaking both releases are heading out on the Friends of the Fish imprint, this is the sub label marketed beneath the umbrella of FdM yet to all intents and purposes is self financed by the bands themselves. First up ‘roots conference’ by Jack Ellister is a 300 only vinyl full length that superbly showcases his grasp of the lysergic pop rudiments to such an extent that we suspect in a parallel universe he’s a Barrett acolyte with means to time travelling and occasionally drawn on by a whim dares to step out of their 60’s into our now with eye swirling musical threads of out there mind warping magick, in essence a covers collection featuring his working of Bowie’s ‘drive in Saturday’ taken from last years FdM annual freebie ‘Fashion’ along with various re-readings of groove by Jackson C Brown, Open Mind, the Fool, Mark Fry and more. Expected sometime February / March.
Drawing to a close what’s been a prolific year long 10th anniversary celebration, Sendelica have been furiously working their way through hours of live recordings taken from key note appearances this year in order to collectively craft an essential account/ document of those shows.
A mammoth set literally oozing with more Sendelica groove than any right mind could take in one hit, so much in fact we’ll leave it to mainman Pete to run through the contents…..

blimey is that enough for you, anyhow expect reviews when that is we manage to free up several hours of listening space, seriously there’s roughly 2 and a half hours worth of mind morphing groove here capturing their out of body trance toned super psychedelic progressive cosmidelica beardy hairy out there-ness experience, alas no sound links for now but here’s some live footage variously drawn from across the you tube community of Sendelica live moments to whet your appetite……and before I forget, a gentle reminder that their stunning re-reading of Scott Walkers ‘nite flights’ is due to drop any day soon via FdM……
