Lucid Nation
The New Return (advance CD)

By: Jeb Branin

This was recorded the day before the 9/11 attacks and features several guest appearances including Patty Schmel of HOLE, Di of RUBYSLIPPER and Greta Brinkman of UNSEEN FORCE. Like other recent releases by LUCID NATION this is all improvisational rock/jazz/punk but this time around the band was striving for a sound that sounded less improvisational and more structured. Naturally, they succeed. I am of the opinion that LUCID NATION can pretty much do anything they want to. To call them amazing is an understatement. To my mind they are the best Alternative Tentacles band who have never been signed to Alternative Tentacles. They are one-in-a-million and manage to blow me away every time they record. I have no idea what the release plans are for this CD-hopefully it will be available soon because it even eclipses "Nonpoetic Rain" in brilliance-but for the time being you can get two mp3s from these sessions on the band's website at www.lucidnation.com.
