sidra: a swampadelic blessing of downtown sf - the official bootleg

chain d.l.k. []
webzine, italy, september 2006

Paolo Bandera (of the post-industrial cult acts Sigillum S and Sshe Retina Stimulants) and Tiberio Longoni (former member of seminal punk and psychedelic bands like Jumpers, 198X and Peter Sellers and The Hollywood Party) joined their efforts for the Sidra project.

Sidra's music goes far beyond the codified notions of rock, jazz, blues and even electronica and the stodgy clichès of post-rock. It sounds like a more structured and jazzy version of the so called post-post rock played by artists on the Intr_version label.

As they claim with grisly humour on the cover, this record may not be for all ... but for the open-minded be sure that those ten sonic-ectoplasms will take you for some serious trips!
