Spirits Burning is a project that brings together a great number of artists (Daevid Allen (Gong), Michael Moorcock, Pete Pavli (High Tide), Adrian Shaw (Bevis Frond), Larry Thrasher (Psychic TV), and Bridget Wishart (Hawkwind), plus members of Dark Sun, Melting Euphoria, Mushroom, Quarkspace, Secret Saucer, ST 37, University of Errors, Weird Biscuit Teatime, and more...) all interested in the psychedelic side of Prog. As you can tell, many of them are of well known groups.

Partly because of what I've just written, the music on Alien Injection is very varied. On different tracks I hear hints of The Doors, Pattie Smith, Tom Waits, Grace Slick... and also of some of the groups of the artists involved in the project, but the music is never derivative of any band or singer, and also it is not very "radio friendly".

Still Alien Injection is a very interesting music project, this because of the great quality of the people involved. Spirits Burning is a group that should be seeked out by lovers of psychedelic experimental music in the vein of what was produced in the late sixties and seventies.
