THE GALILEO 7
"Cruel Bird" b/w "Nowhere People"
(State Records THS—023)

Medway Legend® Allan Crockford returns with his psych-power-pop combo, THE GALILEO 7, offering 2 new monophonic movers worthy of Middle Earth!

All the by-now-familiar elements are in place—a thundering Who-like rhythm section, biting fuzz guitar, swirling organ and exquisite 4-part vocal harmonies...it's like a honey-coated punch in the mush!

Limited edition (500 copies only) 45rpm 7" vinyl—the 1st 200 will be pressed in translucent PURPLE VINYL, ONLY available direct from the band or label...the distros and mail-order muckers will NOT be getting these!
 

Reviews

"...their strongest offering to date..."
Shindig!
"the group might now be at a pivotal juncture in its lifespan, where ongoing musical development and a growing taste for inventively infectious material are at some kind of peak." [Read More...]
"..both sides are aflame with energy."
Record Collector
"The Galileo7 were already tasty but their brand of ... pop has kicked up a notch." [Read More...]
"freakbeat and psychedelic pop of the best and most memorable kind"
Wild Thing
"so here is simply dreamlike material! Two songs that simply listening and Do it again endlessly." [Read More...]
"two new blistering garage-psych-pop songs"
Expose
"“Cruel Bird” is scorching neo-psych with a groovy guitar and organ break. While “Nowhere People” sounds like the band on steroids with all of them banging away delivering a wall of sound from the drums, organ, guitars, and bass." [Read More...]
"Take it!"
Gew Gaw Fanzine
"melodic vocals, great organ and very good sound" [Read More...]
