Another quick 'shout out' for Psi Corps, led by my old friend Alisa Coral, who've made a preliminary announcement of a new album due this summer, All Roads Lead To Amber, based on the 'Amber Chronicles' by Roger Zelazny. This is another RAIG release, and RAIG also are handling an EP that Psi Corps plan to have available, again during the summer, 'Shadow Creatures', which is a four-tracker that also is inspired by the writings of Zelazny. Not connected at all to these releases, but his Roadmarks novel - I guess one of the lesser known of his canon, has always been one of my favourite time-travel books and I always wondered whether it at least in part inspired Hawkwind's 'Motorway City' track - or at least the visuals they were using to back it live in the early 80s. Anyway, Psi Corps to look out for during June/July and I'll update when I hear official release dates.
That kick starts this week's blogging - later in the week I'll be posting on Astralasia, Sun Dial (who I see got a terrific feature in the new issue of Shindig! magazine), some Voiceprint releases and other good stuff.
