THE UEMG, which of course stands for The Ultra Electric Mega Galactic, is Ed Mundell’s new stoner rock supergroup and, despite Google’s best efforts to assure you otherwise, not a University in Brazil.
Comprising the remainder of the tripped out, psychedelic threesome are members of Sasquatch and Trash Titan. Song titles such as ‘Rocket’s Aren’t Cheap Enough’ and ‘Get Off My World!’ nod towards Ed’s Monster Magnet heritage, though the tracks themselves bear little resemblance – always a nice touch for a new project.
The band sound how their moniker suggests they might: spaced out, inviting and other worldly – it would be all too easy to lose yourself in the instrumental, fuzzy groove. Their sound is begging to be committed to vinyl and complemented by a cold beer or perhaps some other fashion of herbal remedy. Pick your poison, but whatever you do, don’t miss The Ultra Electric Mega Galactic at DesertFest London 2014.
DesertFest London 2014 takes place over the weekend of the 25th-27th April 2014 across 3 venues in Camden, London and weekend passes are available from Leeds Tickets HERE.
