The Gurus are a band cut from the retro-cloth of ’60’s British Pop and Pyschedelic Fuzz. After all they are on the Rainbow Quartz label (where else?) and they evoke the era perfectly. This is great music to listen to with the room lights off and the lava lamp on. This is also a big improvement over the last album that concentrated more on Sitar-styled melodies. The songs here are stronger and closer to the Minders in style. “Tears on the Wardrobe” is a great pop tune that bears deserves listening. And “Soup” would be very happy on any Olivia Tremor Control album. A big complaint here is the lack of songs — really if you don’t include the instrumental genre experiments, there are only six songs here. A cover of The Kink’s “I Need You” completes the entire hippie picture here, but it could really use a more dramatic finale, much like Andrew Gold’s great LP “The Fraternal Order of the All”. Oh well, turn on that black light for your glow-in-the-dark posters and download this from e-music here.
