Praise for South of Reality:

“Florid prog-psych with satirical bite… a psychedelic delight.” – Uncut 8/10

“[An] interstellar trip” – Mojo

“As dependably askew as they are pleasingly hypnotic” – Planet Rock, 4*

“Packed with punchy, mobilising rhythms, off-kilter lyrics and robust melodies, SOR trumps Lennon and Claypool’s first collaboration and takes their musical partnership to giddying new heights.” – Record Collector, ⅘

“solid psych-pop thrills… South of Reality for sure, but close enough to home to keep you coming back.” – PROG

South Of Reality, The Claypool Lennon Delirium’s epic second album might be just the antidote this sick world needs. Music so potent it could repel an asteroid impact from space, these seasoned warriors of psychedelia have crafted timeless songs that may as well be chiseled in stone. The monolithic dream team’s new record was produced by Les Claypool and Sean Ono Lennon themselves, and engineered and mixed by Les Claypool at his own Rancho Relaxo studio in Sonoma County, California.

The band have just shared the new animated video for “Blood and Rockets“, which Rolling Stones calls “a sprawling epic that finds Lennon and Claypool crooning and snarling, respectively, over spacey synths and chiming guitars.” Created by Rich Ragsdale, the animated masterpiece cleverly follows the song’s lyrical narrative, with splashes of explosive color and light sprinkled in.

Grab your goggles and a month’s supply of Kool-Aid because The Claypool Lennon Delirium is about to take you for a ride on a rock n roll rocket ship, and frankly you may never come back!

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
