Mouzakis - Magic Tube
Last chance to pick this up, as Radioactive have gone bust. Last copies!
"Surprisingly for a band which stayed together in one form or another for nearly 13 years, Magic Tube, originally released on the obscure British Main label is the only album that Mouzakis managed to issue during their lengthy career. Originally from Delaware, Mouzakis featured the talents of keyboard player Fred Dawson and drummer Eddie Stevenson, augmented by a neverending succession of guitarists. When asked later about Mouzakis, Fred Dawson opined 'after trying to get 4-5 people to agree on 'stuff to play,' we ended up as a three piece band. What we lacked in personnel we made up for in amplification.' Magic Tube, very much the rough and ready hard garage psych album, features almost complete material from the collective pen of Dawson and Stevenson. Of the band, one critic was moved to proclaim 'Mouzakis has to be heard to be believed. They are totally unique...and as a trio, they accomplish more in their sound than groups double their size!'"
