steppes Drop of the Creature (LP, £21.50)label: Teen Sound
The Rome-based Teen Sound Records, one of the most dedicated new-Sixties label around, delivers a precious reissue of this classic 80’s psychedelic album on its 30th anniversary. The Steppes Drop of The Creature is housed in a full coloured gatefold sleeve, enriched by the songs lyrics and rare vintage pictures, as well as two excellent and rare bonus tracks from the period that fit perfectly in the album’s mood. The Fallon brothers’ band penetrated psychedelic folk territories, even digging into their Irish ancestry, with brilliant, sometimes epic results, characterised by mature writing that does not disdain the group’s subtle references to the Beatles, Kinks, Byrds and a touch of eerie medieval atmosphere, all presented in an absolutely original way. “Thirty years on, Drop Of The Creature never ceases to amaze.” Rumore Magazine. “The Steppes represent one of the most shining diamonds of the psychedelic finest hour. Rockerilla Magazine.
