The Explosion, for those who don’t know them (ha!) were created in 1991 and they managed to release an album (Teen Trash Volume 14: From Athens, Greece - in 94) and three singles (Hangover Baby/Some Other Guy in - 93, I'll Shake The Universe/Why Can’t You See - in 94, Another Lie/Misirlou The Greek - in 95). They reunited in 2000, they released another one single (The Last Recordings EP – in ΄00), while they shared another one with the Basements from Thessalonica (Every Day and Every Night – in ΄13). By the end of the ΄17 they began recording their new album, which was released two weeks ago by Lost In Tyme records (a very cool label from Nafpaktos) on vinyl and cd.
14 explosive songs, full of fuzz, full of farfisa, screaming, the absolute live garage band returned and I can say with absolute certainty that by watching them from their first gιgs and recordings back to the 90s, I really listening to these new songs I feel like it didn΄t pass all this time ever since!
Same tension in the voice, amazing feeling and songs that stir you up! I'm stuck with in my grave, don’t shoot my down, you better run, the invincible moody girl of my dreams, girl of my life, the cause you lie, don’t try my love, in your eyes, the amazing garage hymn of the last years baby baby bye bye, with the frenzied vocals and of course the last song of the album, the incredible garage/psych through space and tyme!
The Sound Explosion’s album, beyond all the rest, is also a good opportunity to spread again the garage sound of 80s revival to the young people!!
