Peyote Mothership- First Landing
(C9 Productions C9CD005)

From Aural Innovations #38 (Jan 2008)

Peyote Mothership is a new UK band with ex-Magic Mushroom members teamed up with some younger psychedelic rock folk to create their brand of space rock. This EP features 4 tracks in 24 minutes. I can’t, I wont is the opening number and quite a rocking and spacey track that really reminds me of a mixture of the hard rocking Magic Mushroom band meets Omnia Opera. Great song with some spacey guitars. Quite psychedelic stuff.. Circles is quite melodic and Christina sings in a more melodic style. This is the bands short 3 min psych pop track and features a nice lead synth solo. Mary Jane begins very spacey, ala. Hawkwind, before the guitars take the track off into space. The organ in the middle section really makes this one sound like Hawkwind. The EP ends with Reply, also the longest track and the most spaced and psychedelic as well. A lot of peyote juice put into the mix of this one… My only complaint with this EP is that the sound mix could be much better. The vocals are often mixed far too loud. I really look forward to the bands full length record…
