The Lucid Dream
‘Bad Texan’ is the first work from the ‘in-progress’ 3rd album from Carlisle’s The Lucid Dream. A near 7-minute amalgamation of Krautrock, garage rock, drone and more than a hint to the dancefloor, rather than bathe in the critical acclaim for the 2nd album The Lucid Dream are quick out the blocks, venturing into pastures new again. If anything, it reaffirms those claims by many that they are one of the most important and exciting noise/psych (and much more) bands in the UK at present.
The Lucid Dream formed in Carlisle, Cumbria, in 2008. A string of sold-out 7″s was followed by the debut longer player, ‘Songs Of Lies and Deceit’, in August 2013. The album gained critical acclaim from Uncut, Q, Rocksound, Clash, Classic Rock Magazine, The Quietus, and leading French culture magazine, ‘Les Inrocks’, to name a few. The initial vinyl pressing of the debut album (500 copies) sold out within 2 days, and was backed by a main stage slot at Kendal Calling, 3 consecutive appearances at the Liverpool International Festival Of Psychedelia, and supports to Death In Vegas and A Place To Bury Strangers (full UK tour).
