NASA Assassin – ‘Glitterbalder’ (Self-Released)

If rock 'n' roll stuck to the same format and framework, then it would quickly become very boring, and we'd all be listening to Nickel-freakin'-back all the feckin' time.

On their decade-long musical adventure to date, Bedford quartet have carved a path for many of the psychedelic blues revivalists who have followed in their footsteps, in the process creating for themselves a niche within the blues-stoner marketplace that veers very much towards the darker side of the tracks, yet at the same time has resulted in joyous musical celebrations which enthral and enrapture the audience. And it is a road along which they have walked another significant distance with this stunning fourth studio full-lengther.
