Solo Elektro reviews:
‘Pure Genius. A masterpiece. The solo album Syd Barrett should have
made.’- Paris Move, France
‘His most interesting work to date. A kaleidoscope of sonic
directions. Howling blues perfection yet still stands out as curiously
contemporary.’ – RnR magazine, UK
‘All killer, no filler. I dare you not to be surprised and delighted
with Solo Elektro. 7/8’. – Powerplay Rock and Metal, UK
‘Dripping attitude and explosive raw energies, Solo Elektro is a
hearty slice of music from one of Australia’s most cherished blues
rock artists’ – Rhythms, Australia
‘A reinvention for the Australian troubadour. Solo Elektro is
ambitiously written, with tracks running the gamut between alt.blues,
stoner rock and Eastern-tinged, Lennon-voiced psychedelia.’- Classic
Rock Magazine, UK.
