Sir Plastic Crimewave European Tour

European tour details!

September 2017

Sir Plastic Crimewave from Chicago, USA

Sir Plastic Crimewave aka Steve Krakow, creator of the long-running underground psychedelic magazine Galactic Zoo Dossier (Drag City) has also played for over 2 decades in heavy/avant psych bands like Plastic Crimewave Sound (Eclipse records, Jagjaguwar, etc) , Moonrises (Captcha Records) and Plastic Crimewave Syndicate (Swordfish Recs), but at last is ready to release his first solo LP!
Though Sir PCW wrote all the songs, "solo LP" might be a misnomer, as special guests abound on the Sunstone Record's album "Feathered Serpents."

Recorded over the span of over 15 years (!), a folkier, more atmospheric, cosmic vibe prevails, as aforementioned guests like Judy Dyble (Fairport Convention, Giles Giles and Fripp, Trader Horne) lends her ethereal vocals; Kaleidoscope's Peter Daltrey contributes an incantation; Bobbie and Jon Seagroatt of legendary pagan-folkers Comus contribute background vox, hand drums, horns and beyond; members of Acid Mother's Temple throw in strange voices and flute, and wunderkind Ryley Walker adds finger-picked guitar bliss.

Heady folk influences like Simon Finn, Mark Fry, Witthauser and Westrupp, St. Syd, and banjo-raga gods like Sandy Bull and George Stavis also invade the experimental song cycle. The album features lush and colourful art by PCW himself (fully painted by Sara Gossett, who also is one of 4 flute players on the LP!) and gently tows the line between acid excess and stripped down chamber folk: sunny yet damaged, but all with a sublime stony sheen.
