ICARUS PEEL'S ACID REIGN

THE WINDOW ON THE SIDE OF YOUR HEAD*

mega dodo



LP (pre-order)

Expected Release: 27th Jul 2018

£24.99


If you have had the good fortune to see Icarus Peel perform with his band, The Honey Pot, you will have noticed his ability to improvise on guitar and take their songs to new “strat–os–pheric” heights.

Icarus definitely likes to “mix it up”. He revels in playing exciting, extended solos, a la Hendrix and Blackmore. It all started with a name and a play on words. On a drive to London the band name appeared in Peel's head and the Rain was quickly changed to Reign. “Too much hubris!!” yelled cautious Peel. “You gotta be up front on this business!” shouted incautious Peel.... For a while people had been saying to him that they would like to hear him in a guitar band, playing more. And for a long while he had missed the old trios, The Groundhogs, Taste, Cream, The Experience. So, the time seemed right to try it. Let's play loud and deep and loose. Let's jam and let's do it with properly constructed songs. The songs are real songs, not just frames for excessive lead guitar. Some are old that did not fit into the Honey Pot/Crystal Jacqueline dynamic. Lots are new and purpose built for The Reign. The sound is deep, groove ridden and loud. What can possibly go wrong......
