An electrical tension enters the room – a guitar, left to its own devices, is surfing the breeze. Breaking in the air, smiling from ear to ear. Bicoastal, even! Suddenly, The Peacers are back with their third album. The time has been kind. Three years since they went about their sophomore affect, Introducing the Crimsmen – but you know how it is in these important years, everything changing.
Lots goes down, lots to go back through later. That second Peacers record was made by the second lineup, after 2/3rds of the first gang made for the door after the first LP. In came Bo Moore, Shayde Sartin and Mike Shoun – but after they'd finished making Crimsmen, singer Mike Donovan moved out of his old San Francisco digs to the east coast and made two solo albums.
So, who êtes vous this time, The Peacers? Check the ‘Better Than Ever' box, that's who! Up til now, The Peacers records were consistently great no matter who they were, delivering Mike D's irrepressible subterranean pop in a full color spectrum of moods from purple to blue-black to sometimes white. Blexxed Rec is a different time in the band's life – a second album from the same lineup, plus with a country in between them. Recorded in SF and Hudson, NY with The Peacers' production ear for small and curious detail in full spectrum, Blexxed Rec is a blessed event for all your rock and roll people.
