The Earthling Society
BAND / ARTIST
SOCIETY formed January 2004 in Fleetwood/UK when singer songwriter/guitarist
Fred Laird and David Fyall met up with drummer Jon Blacow. Disillusioned with
the current music trends and sharing a love of 70's progressive rock, krautrock
and 60's psychedelia the band built a primitive 8 track recording studio in a
corner of a disused glass factory. Influenced by their heroes Funkadelic/Ash Ra
Tempel/Can/Amon Duul II and Hawkwind they ignored any commercial intention and
started recording what became their debut album 'Albion'. The
debut album was released by nasoni records of Berlin and became a firm favourite
of Arch-Drude Julian Cope who awarded 'Albion ' Album of the month on his
Legendary Unsung reviews page.
Support gigs for Cope followed as did live appearances
aolng side Hawkwind, Groundhogs, Melvins, White Hills, Blue Cheers and Damo
Suzuki to name a few.
Since the debut the band have released a number of
critically acclaimed DIY albums that have been released on Nasoni and 4zero
Numerous line-up changes have hampered the group's aim to
expand it audience over the years, mostly due to the variety of misfits that
have come and gone under a cloud of self abuse,breakdown and egomania.

for the first time to record there most powerful statement to date
Recording live in the studio and aiming for a
stripped-back feel, the band have created a sprawling album of stoner
psychedelia, space rock, dub and new wave. Taking influences from Pink Fairies,
Hawkwind, Spacemen 3, 70's Detroit, Pere Ubu and PIL, Earthling Society have
painted six portraits of alienation, serial killing, occultism and urban decay,
all built around the two epic songs of the ever-morphing ZodiaK and the
doom-laden Astral Traveller. www. earthlngsociety.co.u k...
