a new double LP from Sendelica:
Sendelica is a psychedelic rock group from West Wales, formed in 2005, and composed of core members Pete Bingham (guitars and electronics), Colin Consterdine (beats, synths),Glenda Pescado (bass ) and Lee Relfe (saxophones). The band have regularly collaborated with many musicians, artists, film makers and performers over the years and, although primarily an instrumental group, with a variety of vocalists as well.
Sendelica conspicuously wear their influences on their sleeves and their music has been described as blending the hypnotic pulse of Can, the impressionistic atmospherics of Pink Floyd, the motorized proto-punk of Neu, the space patrolling guitar pyrotechnics of Jimi Hendrix and the otherworldly ambiences of The Orb They are also known for drawing inspiration from the local landscapes of Cardigan Bay and the Preseli Mountains and the rich, ancient heritage of the region.
Following on from the critically acclaimed, and sold out, album 'And Man Created God' which investigated the relationship between Man and Religion, Pete Bingham began to look into what made a hominid a 'Man'?
It seems that deciphering when exactly man became 'Man' is as tricky a subject to answer as religion!,so many false starts and dead ends, and even trickier is where are we headed as a species? Extinction or new horizons?
Such are the disagreements between expert Palaeontologists and Anthropologists that one such expert quipped 'One Man's Man Is Another Man's Monkey'.
