"Wellwater Conspiracy is the acid-laced brainchild of John McBain, (former guitar madcap of the original Monster Magnet) and exhibits everything that made vintage 60s psychedelic pop so great-- memorable melodies, infectious guitar hooks and just enough 3rd eye demetia to keep even the most seasoned listener on his or her toes. McBain achieves these results by relying on familiar garage riffs and other sonic touchstones in order to reinvent them in his own stewing amalgam of bubbling fudge mayhem. Covers include an old Syd Barrett song "Lucy Leave," as well as two Japanese psych classics by the Carnabeats and the Spiders. The inclusion of a mini-moog (played here by Matt Cameron of a recently extinct metal band) adds the perfect ambience to McBain's surreal vision."
They don't make music like this anymore

"In a world filled with mtv-manufactured mainstream bands that all sound alike and make forgettable music this is a breath of fresh air. The music here resembles the garage-psychadelia music of the 60's with a modern twist. The landscapes created in these songs are amazing considering that not even one song lasts longer than 4 minutes. The great guitars of Far Side Off Your Moon and Space Travel in the Blink of an Eye are sure to leave you breathless while Trowerchord and Lucy Leave will have you jamming in no time to music that simply isn't being made anymore. I personnally like Wellwater's second album better as the songs are longer and even better but this one is almost equally as good and might reassure you that great music is out there somewhere, you just have to find it."
