Introducing… Prisma Circus
“Prisma Circus first came to be in late 2010 as the creation of Alex Carmona Blanco (drums) and Joaquin Escudero Arce (bass/vocals) in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Although the acid rock band had an incomplete line up, they decided to continue working and recording an opening EP. With the help of friends (Jordi Rodriguez Gallego, Aureli Rubio Panades and Oscar Garcia Albizu) guitar tracks were added to the EP to complete the sound. Oscar Garcia Albizu (guitar) later joined as a permanent addition to the band.
Prisma Circus, inspired by the 60’s and 70’s psychedelic rock era, uses the lyrics as tales to introduce the instrumental music. Heavy riffs, loud drums, blues-filled bass lines, and fuzzy-wah guitar solos all insure to set the psychedelic mood in every track.
Currently Barcelona’s trio is planning to work on the road and record a full length album later this year.”
Holy shit. I’m not quite sure how I discovered these guys but I noticed a Facebook status update from them thanking Radio Moscow. They had played with the band the previous night. I clicked on them and noticed a Bandcamp link. Wow. I was completely blown away. Threee really strong songs that kinda take off from where Radio Moscow’s The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz left off. Awesome blues based riffs, lots of fuzz and wah wah pedal to get the air instrument players a workout. Listen to these 3 tracks from their just released EP 2012.
