A Reason For Goodbye - The Winstons (5) - The Winstons (Cassette, Album)

Lots of wind instruments, Canterbury style organ, electric piano. The vocals are in English, although you can barely notice an accent, with the probable exception of "Play with the Rebels" that sound like a cross between Supersister and Arzachel. It's strange to find two songs sung in Japanese by a bunch of Italians, with "Diprotodon" and "Number Number", but there you go! Those lyrics were written by Gun Kawamura, a Japanese, who was also responsible for the cover artwork.

The music is so retro you swear you're hearing a lost gem from the very end of the '60s or beginning of the '70s. There's only one telltale trait revealing this was a very recent recording, and that's the reference to the Internet on "She's My Face" parts of this has more of a West Coast psych feel, I'm sure the use of autoharp was inspired by the Electric Prunes.

There's no digital gear to be found, it all sounds very authentic. There's times the band seems to venture into more of a West Coast-style of psychedelia, more than say, when they sound more Canterbury.

These guys are bound to be a serious hit with the prog and psych crowd, this is nothing short of amazing that needs to be in your collection. One person found this helpful. See all reviews.

Dopo due album solisti, il bassista Roberto Dell'Era degli Afterhours unisce le forze con Enrico Gabrielli ex-Afterhours, ora nei Mariposa e Calibro 35 e Lino Gitto UFO dando vita al progetto The Winstons, sorta di onirica finestra aperta sul mondo lontano ma affascinante dell'Inghilterra a cavallo tra i '60 e i ' Non mancano astrusi echi vandergraafiani ''''''' - Diprotodon' e brevi cenni alla soave delicatezza della scuola Canterburyana, perfettamente compenetrata, peraltro, dal british pop di fine anni '60 'Play With The Rebels'.

Il brano 'Dancing In The Park With A Gun' eredita la summa del pensiero Winstonsiano, che raccoglie genialmente tutte le influenze e i pensieri sopra citati. Doppio invito obbligatorio: a ignorare la copertina, la cui arida e inespressiva inclinazione potrebbe rischiare di far desistere dall'acquisto; b ascoltare ripetutamente l'opera, prima di pronunciarsi con giudizi potenzialmente e dannosamente avventati, stante la sua difficile vocazione sonora.

Nicotine Freak Please try again later. Verified Purchase. This album simply blew me away! Despite the name and the sound of the band, they're not British, they're Italian, despite be heavily influenced by the Canterbury Scene.

They're a trio consisting of keyboardist Lino Gitto, bassist Roberto Dell'Era, and keyboardist and sazist Enrico Gabrielli, all handle vocals. They tend more towards the psych end of the Canterbury sound, but there's still plenty of jazzy elements. Lots of wind instruments, Canterbury style organ, electric piano.

Check out the electric piano, bass and driving beat that follows. The vocals return at 4 minutes then they stop as it gets fairly heavy with horns. A change before 2 minutes though as it changes completely to an experimental sound then this urgent rhythm takes over. It's spacey and insane at the same time. The organ starts to light it up then it all stops around 3 minutes as the sampled spoken words return.

Dogs are barking along with many strange and experimental sounds. Vocals are mournful bringing Wyatt to mind. It ends with floating organ and a beat. There's lots of depth with organ over the top as multi-vocals join in and they are relaxed. A bass horn joins in as well. They certainly are brothers when it comes to music. Let the raucousness commence! As it all begins as an early Soft Machine reference with Robert Wyatt intonations then quickly leads to an organ drone with a sultry sax seeping in.

Soon thereafter the organs are joined by the bass and it's party time! A beefy brash bass bellows out a grooviliscious pop hook with a Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd keyboard run that screams and the Summer Of Love with Soft Machine harmonies creating a melodious cantabile and oh yeah!

They certainly are brothers when it comes to music. I listen to this one regularly now, it really suits all moods I could find myself in. It's dreamy and poppy and strongly influenced by the Canterbury scene.
