Product Description

COUNTRY LANE - Substratum
[LP]   

LABEL: MELLOTRON    
COUNTRY LANE - Substratum


Limited edition Vinyl 500 Copies Gatefold Cover

COUNTRY LANE's "Substratum" seems to be well enough known, but it is very difficult to find information on the band itself.

The album was recorded in 1973 with Raymond Amey on guitars, synthesizers, and vocals, Olivier Maire on organ, piano, spinet, and vocals, Jean-Francois Donze on drums, Giancarlo Duella on bass, and Freddy Von Kaenel on rhythm guitar and banjo. Swiss bands generally fit well alongside German artists, but COUNTRY LANE managed to set themselves apart. Like the others, they were mainly influenced by British artists of the time. However, where most were taking after the likes of E.L.P., Genesis, and Yes, COUNTRY LANE sounds more inspired by Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, and psychedelic music.

There are even some comparisons made to Nektar and Frank Zappa. They jam heavy at times, but also keep it melodic. Epic concept is present, as well as humor (in the form of a little vaudeville). The lyrics are sung in English, and the accent is very good. Were they rebels? Maybe not, but it is a diversion form the usual mid '70s Germanic prog.
