Blue Orchids | Mystic Bud

An all-new studio album from cult outfit Blue Orchids, recorded in 2003 under the guiding hand of chief Orchid Martin Bramah. Mystic Bud features eleven superb new Bramah penned songs, including the naked soul of Shining Brow, the upbeat Soul Stuff and Freak Show, the Snake Pass stomp of Black Peg's Son and the troubadour gem Sub Rosa. By way of a surprise, the set contains a narcoleptic cover of the Archie's classic Sugar Sugar. If you're looking for reference points, think... bubblegum trance!
Says Bramah: "I'm back from the wilderness with some interesting specimens. It's an album of songs I discovered in the inner jungle, made in my kitchen/living space plus bits I found in the backyard. I wanted it to be casual yet intimate, like the best encounters. I kept the mix quite dry and natural sounding, understated."
Musicians include: Martin Bramah - vocals, guitars, banjo; Stuart Kennedy - bass, harmonica; Alastair Murphy - organ, piano, dulcimer; Charlotte Bill - flute; and introducing Bud Umu on drums.
