About This: THE SATELLITERS are unarguably THE German 60s Garage Punk-band number one - since 1993 they have produced 10 LPs, a 10' and more than a dozen singles, which were released by some of the finest record labels of today's Garage-scene (among others DIONYSUS, SCREAMING APPLE, CHAPUTA and of course SOUNDFLAT RECORDS) and established their very own SATELLITERS-signature sound, that combines an authentic 60s garage-sound (recorded with original vintage equipment only) containing just the right amount of fuzz-guitar, hammond organ, harp, a psychedelic Freakbeat-influence and the unmistakable vocals of lead singer Steve. Their brand new album 'Zahstethomalex' is no less remarkable than its predecessors. As usual, the boys shine with both their coverversions, such as their fantastic fuzzy version of 'Driving Sideways On A One-Way Street' (original by MERELL FRANKHAUSER), as well as their own compositions, such as the catchy 'Into Your Eyes' or 'My Illusion', that has a cool, fuzzy sound slightly resembling the one of THE SEEDS. The album is definitely also not short of a psychedelic/Freakbeat influence, which is apperent in the instrumental 'Pandora's Wonderland' for example or in the soft, dreamy 'As I Tried' with its gloomy, distorted vocals . Altogether this album is no less than what you'd expect from the fantastic SATELLITERS: an absolutely thrilling mixture of fuzzy 60s-Garagepunk, psychedelic Freakbeat-influence and fabulous vocals.A fantastic record through and through!
