"...extraordinarily good beat sounds."

"it's all good and will blow away those blues and bring some joy back into your life, result." [Read More...]
"...their strongest offering to date..."
"the group might now be at a pivotal juncture in its lifespan, where ongoing musical development and a growing taste for inventively infectious material are at some kind of peak." [Read More...]
"..both sides are aflame with energy."
"The Galileo7 were already tasty but their brand of ... pop has kicked up a notch." [Read More...]
"pretty darn tasty!"
"Power-pop melodies and harmonies backed up with drumming set to the rarely heard Keith Moon energy level." [Read More...]
"freakbeat and psychedelic pop of the best and most memorable kind"
"so here is simply dreamlike material! Two songs that simply listening and Do it again endlessly." [Read More...]
"two new blistering garage-psych-pop songs"
"“Cruel Bird” is scorching neo-psych with a groovy guitar and organ break. While “Nowhere People” sounds like the band on steroids with all of them banging away delivering a wall of sound from the drums, organ, guitars, and bass." [Read More...]
"a record that exudes joy to play, share, and electricity!"
"This great band still has the sacred fire, and a big talent of composition!" [Read More...]
"The old favourites... are given a right kick up the bracket!"
"...a snap-shot not just of the sort of songs you can expect when you see The Galileo 7 play live now but more importantly the energy in which they are being played." [Read More...]
"Take it!"
"melodic vocals, great organ and very good sound" [Read More...]
"..manage to both exhibit their influences... and innovate on ...those influences..."
False Memory Lane is the work of a band enjoying the freedom & time that not being a household name confers on them. They deserve as much success as the next guy sure but they're not losing sleep over the fact that it's not yet caught up with them. [Read More...]
"The new line-up is now really hitting its stride.."
The new line-up is now really hitting its stride and switching Mole from bass to drums was a stroke of genius as he is worth the entrance price alone with his flamboyant drumming style, which draws murmurs of appreciation from people around me. [Read More...]
highly polished yet full-throttle
If you're going to do moddy-psychy-freakbeatin-fruggin'-oh-nice-bellbottoms pop in 2015, it outghta sound like this [Read More...]
Hooky guitar lines...superb organ playing...equally inventive vocal melodies and harmonies.
It's easy to see why Allan Crockford's previous band The Prisoners were such an influence on The Charlatans and The Stone Roses. Fans of those bands frustrated at the lack of new material should do themselves a favour and get behind a band that actually release records. [Read More...]
Timeless freakbeat psych-pop
The song has an urgent feel in its hyperactive engine room with peerless mono production that gives the bottom end extra punch. [Read More...]
a riot of explosive drumming, stacked harmonies and fuzz guitar/organ interplay
...wouldn't shame 'Black Sea' era XTC... [Read More...]
"..a storming head-on rush..."
It really captures the live energy of the new look band in the grooves of the vinyl and is sure to become a favourite at future gigs. [Read More...]
"a Who-inflected rush of mod energy and a hint of Robyn Hitchcock at his Soft Boys-peak"
"brimming with an infectious vocal over a strident 80s power-pop sheen coupled with an infectious melody that won’t leave your head for hours afterwards." [Read More...]
"..a near perfect Psych-Pop classic.."
There's an undoubtedly English sensibility about Galileo 7, from Syd Barrett and the Beatles "Revolver", "The Who Sell Out" to Blur's "Modern Life Is Rubbish" and I keep getting drawn back to Julian Cope's first two solo albums "World Shut Your Mouth" and "Fried". [Read More...]
'Highly entertaining and great fun'
"On the band's third album 'Down Memory Lane' eleven groovy, catchy, vaguely retro, organ-infused pop-tastic songs hove into view, opening with the inspiring and upbeat 'Don't Follow Me,' to which I say, `Tune!" [Read More...]
'..there is not a duff track on this album and definitely a must...
The songs display all the finest qualities of that area of popular music where the likes of Ray Davies reside. Classically English and (dare I say it?) working class. [Read More...]
Although harkening back to the 60s, they are not stuck in a time warp
Each song is different, but they all complement each other. There are fuzzed guitars, organ-driven songs, and phased vocal harmonies enough to please lovers of 60s Brit psych. Though harkening back to the 60s, they are not stuck in a time warp, many of the songs have an aura of contemporary psych-pop bands like The Luck of Eden Hall et al. [Read More...]
Allan Crockford - Interview
Galileo 7’s latest album ‘False Memory Lane’ is a rewarding listen. Its 1960s rooted psychedelic pop rock jangle is both evocative and refreshing. [Read More...]
"False Memory Lane" easily qualifies for the top five of this years neo-sixties albums
All things considered, "False Memory Lane" easily qualifies for the top five of this years neo-sixties albums [Read More...]
... an intriguing listen. Resistance is futile.
The reflective, haunting title track False Memory lane is underpinned with Mellotron akin to the Moody Blues' Days Of Future Passed and elsewhere the songs are tuneful and energetic, switching from dreamy Syd Barrett vocals and whimsical organ to the rapid fire of 'phasers set to stun' on Tide's Rising.
