Straight-ahead rock, like Tribe. (Neile)

own

General comments:

Psychowelders' music consists of a guitar/drums rock melody with Rhondda Francis' vocals hovering about. (jbr@casetech.dk)

Great, original female voices and interesting music are what grabs me, and Inertia really grabs me more and more the more I listen to it. Rocking, wonderful stuff, and a great lead singer and musically very interesting. If you like more rock-oriented music, Psychowelders are definitely worth tracking down. (Neile)

Comments:

Dreamy, ethereal music with nice vocals and an edge. Songs such as "Inquisition" and "Bombs Away" demonstrate that Psychowelders have teeth as well as lovely sounds. Nice artwork, too. (jbr@casetech.dk)

I'm still listening to this more than a dozen years later. My only complaint is that it's short! Wonderful, creative music. Not to be missed. (Neile)
