Scandinavian Friends - A Tribute To Roky Ericson (CD)
On the eve of his 60th birthday, Roky Erickson is getting one heck of a present from some Scandinavians. This northerly tribute picks up where 1990's genre-defining Where the Pyramid Meets the Eye left off, recasting 15 Erickson classics while still retaining the psychoactive spirit of the originals. The Cheaters' version of "Reverberation (Doubt)" remains studiously tuneful even as the band amps up to Spacemen 3 proportions. By contrast, Witchcraft's lovingly tweaked take on "Sweet Honey Pie" would be right at home on a Secretly Canadian podcast. The Hellacopters are the biggest name here, remaining true to their supersonic garage rock on "Cold Night for Alligators." Chuck Berry gets the MC5 treatment on the Backstreet Girls' "Crazy Crazy Mama," while On Trial imbues "I Have Always Been Here Before" with faraway, lump-throated tenderness.
