Songs From The Temple Of Now

Dakini DKRCD108 (2014)

'Invisible' studio adventure from Devon's finest, with dynamically venerable psychedelic guest vocalists daevid allen and Arthur Brown. Gatefold card sleeve. Track 2 also appears on the limited edition vinyl Tried So Hard single.

daevid allen features as guest lead vocalist on 'Tried So Hard, a track previously only available on the limited 7" single of the same name, and there is also a daevid lead vocal-less band version. A similar arrangement holds true for the track on which Arthur Brown guests, 'Spirit Of Joy'. Which reminds me, to remind you that the Invisibles bass player, Phil Curtis used to play in Kingdom Come - hence the Arthur Brown connection.
