WE, THE DANDELION SEEDS, ARE HERE TO SAVE YOU

 By Axel Björnsson

GARAGE ROCKERS, PSYCH HEADS AND WILD ROCK ‘N’ ROLL FANS: OUR TIME HAS COME! Soon people will notice that this is the shit. Yeah, I’m talking about the retro—the revival of the old and simple. Old and catchy.

When did music start being so boring? I’m not so sure. Of course there has always been bad and good music. But in this case, we’re talking about rock ‘n’ roll rather than other genres. It started in the ‘50s with Elvis Presley, Fats Domino, Eddie Cochran and all those fellas. Heavily influnced by the Mississippi Delta and gospel music.

Later peopl like Link Wray and Bo Didley made it badder, rougher, like a dash of whiskey had been added to the cocktail of what was already known as rock ‘n roll. Then we have the ‘British Invasion’, with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, added more perfection to rock ‘n roll worldwide.

This is when we come to the top of the hill. When rock ‘n roll started transforming from its ‘50s incarnation and being heard like never before. I’m talking about the time when musicians started taking ACID. In the mid ‘60s, everyone was dropping LSD. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Byrds, The 13th Floor Elevators and all these major bands were tripping out. It’s not a rumour. It is a fact.

You might ask yourself, how is possible that this one little chemical would change music history forever? It’s not really about the dope. It’s about the vibe.

That’s what my band, The Dandelion Seeds, is all about. GETTING WILD! Bringing our audience to a whole other dimension. Making you dance like you’ve never had a chance to with today’s pathetic modern music. Stop wasting your time listening to bunch of crap! Allow yourself the PLEASURE of seeing The Dandelion Seeds at Iceland Airwaves. The REVOLUTION has begun.
