The space rock Eartha Kitt joins the maverick San Fran psych-groove masters. Space rock / psychedelic jazz groovers Mushroom join forces with singer/songwriter Alison Faith Levy, known for her own albums (with members of Camper Van Beethoven) and as a member of the Loud Family (featuring Scott Miller of Game Theory).
With Mushroom, Alison soars soulfully into another realm - that one reviewer described as "The Space Rock Eartha Kitt." Previous reviews of Alison's solo material have said: "Alison Faith Levy, like her fellow San Franciscan Mark Eitzel, seeks to reconcile 1960's pop loveliness with the bleakness of the coming millenium." - SnackCake Magazine.
On this new CD, Mushroom with it's ever expanding and changing line up includes: Guitarist and vocalist (via his special megaphone) Josh Pollock - who has had the good fortune to collaborate with the likes of John Cale and Flea (both at the Patti Smith-curated Meltdown Festival in London), as well as Damo Suzuki, Kevin Ayers, and Gong mastermind Daevid Allen, with whom he's recorded the latest Gong album, plus five CDs with their band Daevid Allen's University Of Errors, and two CDs with that unholy hybrid of Gong and Japanese psych-terrorists Acid Mothers Temple, Acid Mothers Gong. University of Error's bassist Michael Clare plays on several songs. When not playing percussion for Mushroom, Dave Mihaly can be found on stage and in the studio with country/folk star Jolie Holland. On their album "Yesterday, I Saw You Kissing Tiny Flowers" - Alison Faith Levy & Mushroom take you on a journey to the centre of your mind- led by Mushroom drummer and producer Pat Thomas
