STERLING ROSWELL New album The Call of the Cosmos out on Fire Records
24th October, London Rough Trade East – Album Launch
“Think Lee Hazelwood produced by Joe Meek – perfectly realised and revealing a commercial side to Roswell previously unheard / viewed through the lens of Syd Barrett and Kevin Ayers ” LOIS WILSON / MOJO
This month sees the worldwide release of Sterling Roswell’s superlative new album The Call of The Cosmos, which is an exotic masterpiece, filled with shimmering soundscapes and bathed in psychedelic pop. The former Spacemen 3 drummer and multi-instrumentalist is a true radical; Artist, musician, poet and producer, Roswell is all of these and more and over the years he has embraced a myriad of artistic forms to great effect.
Sterling Roswell will be celebrating The Call Of The Cosmos release with an album launch show at Rough Trade East on 24th October at 7pm
Listen to “Interplanetary Spaceliner” here:
The Call of the Cosmos features the singles ‘Interplanetary Spaceliner‘,‘Give Peace Another Chance’ and ‘a remix of The Girl From Orbit’, cementing the elements which have infused Sterling’s work since his days with Spacemen 3, his multi instrumental driving force behind The Darkside and his innovative psychedelic soundscapes as a studio engineer and producer. The album stands testament to a new message for Interplanetary Peace and features a truly fitting tribute to the late, great front man of THE SEED, Sky Sunlight Saxon with a cover of the song ‘Tripmaker’, which was originally featured in the Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda movie The Trip in 1968.
“Baudelaire once wrote, ‘music excavates heaven’. Listen to this record and you might just have to agree.” ANDREW WEATHERALL / MOJO “Sterling uses his knowledge of the music, acid and crucial fundamentals of the genre to create a mini-masterpiece” KRIS NEEDS / SHINDIG “A topside full of pulsing spectral tunes and a flipside like a ’60s sci-fi soundtrack mixed with ‘Echoes’ of Pink Floyd. An otherworldly delight!” MARK ELLEN
