Southern California's The Loons keep growing, learning, creating, evolving but never compromising. Their new 7" presents three tracks that attest to their total commitment to the wild spirit of 60s garage, freakbeat and psychedelia. The Loons will be touring Spain in April 2019, including appearances at the Barcelona Psych Fest and the Wild Weekend in Mallorca. DESCRIPTION The Loons keep growing, learning, creating, evolving but never compromising. Whether tearing it up onstage or working on new material in the recording studio, their commitment to the wild spirit of 60s garage, freakbeat and psychedelia is total. Their latest 7" release, an exclusive to Munster Records, presents three new and diverse Loons creations: 'A Dream In Jade Green' is an intense, high-energy psychedelic number; two parts hallucination, one part seduction. 'Memories Have Faces' is a primal, percussive, jungle workout with wailing steel guitar and Yardmerizing harmonica, while 'Don't Make Me Wait' is a straight-ahead, hip-shaking 60s beat number. Formed in San Diego more than 20 years ago, The Loons have recorded and released four albums - "Inside Out Your Mind" is the most recent - along with a slew of singles, and played gigs in more cities around the world than they can keep count of. They've collaborated with original 60s music icons like Glenn Ross Campbell of The Misunderstood, Dick Taylor of The Pretty Things, Randy Holden of The Sons of Adam and Blue Cheer, and Michael Stuart-Ware of Love. Mike Stax, who also publishes Ugly Things magazine, is the lead singer. Anja Stax plays bass and sings backing vocals. Marc Schroeder and Chris Marsteller play guitars, and Chris Cancelliere is on drums. Mike Stax was already a veteran of several other San Diego bands, including The Crawdaddys and The Tell-Tale Hearts, when he first formed the Loons in 1997. Ebbot Lundberg of The Soundtrack of Our Lives produced the group's debut album, "Love's Dead Leaves", released by Get Hip Records in 1998. Anja joined on bass after relocating to California from London, where she'd been playing with The Diaboliks, and Marc Schroeder and Chris Marsteller joined soon afterwards. The "Paraphernalia" album was released in 2004, followed by "Red Dissolving Rays Of Light" (Bomp, 2010), which included two tracks with Glenn Campbell of The Misunderstood on steel guitar, and "Inside Out Your Mind" (Bomp, 2015). Chris Cancelliere became the group's new drummer at the end of 2018.
