Frozen Planet 69
« on: February 09, 2020, 02:25:40 AM »
Frozen Planet....1969 is an instrumental Space-Psychedelic jam-band featuring members of Mother Mars and Looking Glass. Although the band name suggests otherwise, FP69 dates back to early 2012. It was then that a heavy-psych jam session between two Sydney-based musicians, Paul and Frank Attard, and Canberra-based Lachlan Paine, took place. Luckily, this afternoon of improvisation at the home of Pepper Shaker Records, Frank Street Studio, was recorded. However, it wasn’t until over a year later that the three decided they should finally mix and release some of the material they had created that day. They decided this album would be set out like a soundtrack to a film. That film would be called “Frozen Planet….1969”. Pretty soon this one-off release would become a band called Frozen Planet….1969. The emphasis would be on improvisation. No vocals, just straight-out instrumental jamming. FP69 played its first show in February 2014. It was also around this time that the band recorded another mammoth jam session. From this jam session came the second and third releases for the band, “Lost Traveller Chronicles, Volume 1” (2014) and “Lost Traveller Chronicles, Volume 2” (2015). The concept this time would be a travel journal through the constellations, with each song being a chapter from the journal. Both volumes were released in digital and physical format on Pepper Shaker Records.
