Mushroom - Songs of Dissent: Live at the Make Out Room 8/9/19 CD

SKU AA 002
In 1997, before the term ‘kozmigroov’ was in general use, Mushroom played their first-ever show at the Make Out Room in San Francisco. 22 years later, they came back for more...

“Since 1997, Mushroom (from the San Francisco Bay Area) has performed their own flavor of 1970's inspired psychedelic instrumental grooves - plus collaborations with Krautrock legends Faust, Soft Machine's Kevin Ayers, Daevid Allen of Gong, Bundy K. Brown of Tortoise, and jazz trumpeter Eddie Gale (who did two groundbreaking albums for Blue Note in the 1960s).
Songs of Dissent is their first full-length album of all-new songs in a decade!
On June 27th, 1997 Mushroom played their first-ever show at The Make Out Room in San Francisco (released as a CD: Really Don't Mind If You Sit This One Out in 2006). 22 years later - on August 9th, 2019 - they returned to that venue to record Songs of Dissent with 3 of their original members including drummer/bandleader Pat Thomas.
Recently, Mushroom expanded to Los Angeles-based collective - two of them make their recorded debut here - new members David Immerglück & Victor Krummenacher (from Monks of Doom, Camper Van Beethoven). The plan was to release this album in early 2020 - but when the pandemic hit, it was shelved until now."

"Think of the German art-rock band Can, James Blood Ulmer, the Allman Brothers Band at Fillmore East and just the idea of the Fillmore East."-SF Bay Guardian

"Mushroom is often reminiscent of Herbie Hancock's Headhunters and Miles Davis 'Big Fun' era."-DownBeat
