Len del Rio and Tommy Grenas (ex Chrome) a.k.a. Anubian Lights grew up in the midst of the wildest recordcollection known to man. Also their huge collection of vintage instruments might be responsible for the "kinetic infa-sound" of this high fidelity recording.
Formerly being craftsmen in all kinds of bands, from Hawkwind, Nik Turner's Space Ritual, the Brain, Chrome, Pressurehed, Farflung, Zero Gravity and Dj Me and Dj You, the Anubian Lights members experimented on a broad range of music.
They are based in the massive L.A. underground, where the Ray Makers, Seksu Roba and Dj Me and Dj You from Sukia shake hands, make up sideprojects, play for
Damo Suzuki (CAN) and compete for megastardom.
They first broke ground as the Anubian Lights in 95 with their first release „The Eternal Sky“ followed in 1996 by the EP „The Jackal and Nine“ and in 1998 by the full-length „Let Not the Flame Die Out“.
From these spacey journeys to „Naz Bar“, one can clearly point out a new sound, coming from the influence of Exotica á la Martin Denny and Les Baxter. As playful chemists, they perfectly understand to mingle these influences with their background to a delight- and colorful mix.
Meet these friendly guys from L.A. while experimenting with krautrock, bellydance, hallucinetic grooves, bewitching vocals, vintage generated acidlines and a whole lot of love for stereophonic adventures!
This is not just a rethorical statement since the „Nubes“ will tour the world summer 2001, where you can enjoy their show along with exotic dancer, splendid visuals, and obligatory sun helmet!
This fine achievement of supersound craftsmenship reaches you in CD- and Double Vinyl- Format. Vinyl comes with deluxe Gatefoldcover.
