Rock and Roll Army: Magic Christian "Evolver"

[translated by Google}

It seems lie that in the heat of 2009 still new bands prepared arise to pay the sound that to us generally british bequeathed invasion and The Beatles in particular. That yes, that nobody takes to the deceit when reading that of new: Magic Christian is the latest adventure of Cyril Jordan, guitarist of Flamin' Groovies (band of cult, revivalists and precursors of Power Pop, is nothing there). But Jordan is not only in this adventure, they second Eddie to him Muñoz The Plimsouls- and the one that outside drummer of Blondie - and occasional Ramone - Clem Burke. The one completes the formation that without a doubt is the constituent less met the band, the singer Paul Kopf, producer and occasional musician of the scene of Frisco.

The disc abounds in a Beateliano MGP-rock with cuts hearing aid, you cut as the initial In Your Arms or Run and Hide is good sample than I say. Also there is place for affairs with the Folk with certain psychedelic dyes in Shah. Towards the final section of the round one they park a little the Liverpool sound and more sixties approach per moments the Stones: Turn Up the Heat, with those xylophones that bring to the memory the Under My Thumb of Jagger/Richards and Tomorrow Never Comes, with their beginning to the Paint it Black and a certain air to more recent bands as The Chesterfield Kings. Really, everything a treaty of music 60 ' s corroborated by a pair of covers tawdry: Out in the Streets of The Who and Anytime AT All of, of course, The Beatles.

It is to be celebrated that there are bands as Magic Christian, arranged to submerge, to rescue and to return to give use all to one decade of good music, clear that, could not be expected another thing of a type as Cyril Jordan, who has based almost everything what she has done in the legacy of fab-four. By the way, a last Beatle connection: The Magic Christian is the title of a comedy carried out by Ringo Starr.
