New album out now....!

Yes, it's available now. But as some of you may have noticed, it's currently out of stock on the Damaged Goods website... but don't worry! It's available from plenty of other webstores, mail-order sites and shops. Just Google it (other search engines are available) and you'll see a long list of stockists all round the world. Try Amazon, Ebay and Discogs as well.
We're not currently selling it from this website. It's a small pressing and we've only got a few copies to sell at the next couple of gigs... if we have any left, we'll put them up for sale here in a few weeks. And then we can pray for a quick repress!

 

"...a total blast and essential listening for any fan of 1960s Psych, Beat and Garage Rock"
2With a mix of great taste and cool influences from some fantastic bands, The Galileo 7 have taken the best of mid 60s British Psych Pop and put their own stamp on it, it’s a cracking little record." [Read More...]
"a raw and raucous beast of an album"
"despite the occasional reference points they are really difficult to categorize and there's no doubting the band are very much an exciting and contemporary sounding outfit. The Galileo 7 are challenging our preconceptions and stretching the boundaries far beyond the garage with their inventive Psych Pop nuggets."

New album out in autumn! New website... sometime...

Yeah, it's been a long time since we posted anything on this clunky old website. We don't get many strangers passing through these parts any more... but maybe we'll put this right in the near future. Because our fifth (FIFTH!) album is on the way, and it's our best yet (of course we're gonna say that - but it's the absolute truth), so maybe it deserves a new website!

We're honoured that our new album 'Tear Your Minds Wide Open!' will be released on the world reknowned garage/punk/indie-pop label Damaged Goods in September (or thereabouts). We're not sure where our psych-pop fits in their, but labels be damned!! The fact that they're putting aside genres and sub-genres to give this album a place in their catalogue is PROOF that this platter KICKS ARSE (in a psych-pop kind of way)...!!

The album will be released in a special winner takes all format... vinyl, CD and download ALL IN ONE. You get the lot! And the CD will feature a bonus track that we couldn't fit on the vinyl... it clocks in at over 10 mins, so we thought it might crowd side 2 somewhat. More details on that later... There's an interesting story attached to the track... in more ways than one.

And to celebrate the new album, we thought we'd spruce up our public (web) image and drag our cyber presence into the second decade of the 21st century... coming soon (ish)!

'Live-O-Graphic' to be released on VINYL!!

Yes, due to overwhelming popular demand, 'Live-O-Graphic' will be available on vinyl from late November.

The album will now be called 'The Complete Live-O-Graphic Session' and feature two tracks not on the original CD version. 'Cruel Bird' and 'Nowhere People' were recorded in the same session but were diverted to the 7" single released in mono on State Records at the same time as the CD.  These two instant classics have been remixed in stereo to sit with the rest of the tracks, and the whole 12 track album has been remastered especially for vinyl...

In a break with a practice that has unfortunately become commonplace in the past few years, the band decided to master the album to preserve the dynamics of the original mixes - NOT just squash them to achieve that maximum volume, flat-as-a-pancake, ear-fatiguing blocks of noise effect that is so prevalent these days!

Ever wondered why you can listen to a whole evening of vinyl, but switch off after one or two modern CDs...? Do you sometimes feel that you're being shouted at by a lot of modern music? It's because old records were generally mastered for clarity and dynamics - they enticed you in and invited you to listen and engage with the music. If you want it loud, turn up the amplifier! Most modern music is mastered for maximum volume but minimum dynamics. No room for quieter passages, no space for the rhythm to breathe. It's impressive for 10 minutes or so, but after a while your ears begin to shut down and everything sounds the same. It's not the fault of CDs, but they do offer the temptation of being able to hold and reproduce sound at a level that would make needles jump out of the grooves of a record. So we've gone the other way, because we care about the sound... and no one else has got the guts to just let the music be what it is... not squash so hard that there is no life left!! Freedom for dynamics and groove! This record may be quieter, but if you turn it up it will sound better!!

BUY IT AND SEE!!
