Jupiters Carnival

'Jupiter's carnival claim to be from Bristol, but they sound more like they just woke up in laurel canyon after partying on Mars. They blend stomping hard rock with blues, funk, soul and loopy psychedelia into a head-spinning collage of sound' - Classic Rock Magazine.

‘Recorded in Bristol with Jim Barr (Portishead) this may well appeal to those who wish that the last 40 years were just a bad dream. The lazy ‘Smokestack lightning’ intro to ‘Waiting For The Day’ ushers in a soulful and convincing take on Coverdale-era deep Purple and that bluesy underbelly is visible again in the eastern-tinged psych-rocker, ‘The Sun Still Shines’. A funky mid-section pulls us ever further westwards until by the time we get to the Booker T-steeped ‘Come Home’ we are slap bang in land-locked USA and about as far away from the English west country as you can get. The strut of ‘See The Fire’ presages the closing ‘Within Your Mind’, which might as well be Sly Stone and Lowell George jamming with the Allmans. With great vocals and superb musicianship and arrangements , what reason is there not to do the time warp again?’ - Shindig Magazine.
