Magic Bus - Phillip The Egg album review

The best Prog you can get this month

Cover art for Magic Bus - Phillip The Egg album

Pot-headed Totnes pixies Magic Bus tip macramé caps to Canterbury heroes. Kevin Ayers vocals overlay breezy, jumbo-cord grooves, hitting Ozrics jams and Gong wrinkles. Ex-Kula Shaker keyboardist Jay Darlington keeps Kepler 22’s jazz-fusion knotty, as flautist Goodwin-Darke conjures some mellifluous melodies for the unashamedly hippie melting pot.
