Goldray at the Borderline, London - live review
Venue: Goldray at the Borderline, London
Goldray and The Mothers Earth Experiment team up for a far-out live experience
The Mothers Earth Experiment are a six-piece prog psych band with a touch of glam about them. Their first number, Quietus, starts with staccato, stabbing keyboards – very Yes/ELP.
A nine-minute epic, it has a loping, funk blues midsection that allows the players to get lost in their oceanic, psych drone music, and a coda that mixes up Floydian ambience with free jazz bursts. Talos is another sectional piece, with a tricksy time signature and a freewheeling approach that sees them melding Krautrock, blues and prog. Eco-anthem Cool Down Mama is bluesy funkadelia with art rock touches and a blistering guitar solo. Ones to watch.
