The Loons keep growing, learning, creating, evolving but never compromising. Whether tearing it up onstage or working on new material in the recording studio, their commitment to the wild spirit of 60s garage, freakbeat and psychedelia is total. Their latest 7” release, an exclusive to Munster Records, presents three new and diverse Loons creations: ‘A Dream In Jade Green’ is an intense, high-energy psychedelic number; two parts hallucination, one part seduction. ‘Memories Have Faces’ is a primal, percussive, jungle workout with wailing steel guitar and Yardmerizing harmonica, while ‘Don’t Make Me Wait’ is a straight-ahead, hip-shaking 60s beat number. Formed in San Diego more than 20 years ago, The Loons feature Mike Stax (who also publishes Ugly Things magazine) as lead singer, Anja Stax on bass and backing vocals, Marc Schroeder and Chris Marsteller on guitars, and Chris Cancelliere plays drums. They will be touring Spain in April 2019, including appearances at the Barcelona Psych Fest and the Wild Weekend in Mallorca.
