RECOMMENDED: APOLOGY NONE
Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Without a doubt, ELO's progenitors: 'The Move' traversed the sixties and could said to have been not only eclectic but also psychedelic in certain of their phases. And any band seeking to replicate that particular genre now has to be dedicated and suitably enthused. But to also do it under the guise of a cartoon band is truly a challenging undertaking. As an example; one thinks of ABC's amazing 1985 release: "How To Be A Zillionaire" as they evolved from a five  piece to a duo via their own cartoon phase. I 'met' Tim Ross a.k.a. Terry Summer - a huge 'Move' and ELO fan - via the excellent DJ Shaz Kuiama's Radio Backtrack show: "Through the Years" chat room. Tim mentioned to me about the latest CD release by: Apology None - his very own cartoon band - entitled: "High Society" and also their animated video releases over on YouTube at:
Track listing:  "Sunshine";  "Superfast!";  "Capriccio";  "Need Some Love From You";  "Every Day";  "Flirtin' Kind";  "Yesterday Once More";  "Song";  "Swingin' Pad";  "My Kind Of Girl";  "Down";  "Blast Off!"
As a result of those conversations; I decided to order: "High Society" from amazon.com. It is a recording steeped in psychedelia and is as "groovy" a tribute to that era as that of the previously ELOBF reviewed "Red Hot" by 'Ivory Tower Project' was to AOR in the seventies and eighties. I like this album and might I suggest that you take a look at the bands web site in order to not only find out out more about Apology None but to also consider getting a hold of: "High Society" for yourself thus:
ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] recommends and endorses: 'Apology None' to all music fans who enjoy the music of: ELO; The Move; The Beatles [and related artistes] out there in the ELOBF universe!
Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] universe ... KJS ... 18-June-2012
