It's pure, authentic psychedelic pop
if you like really good, dynamic songs, incisive organ lines, bouncing
Mellotron, fat, dripping bass, rip snorting guitars, wasp-in-a-tin guitars, expressive drums and tight harmonies in widescreen stereo you should probably grab a copy of this. It's a proper record.

"... a very invigorating potion..."
Somehow'' False Memory Lane'' tends towards a certain timelessness popistique, outside lights hypes and other flaws. Cosmic energy and that is a very invigorating potion to keep your head in the stars. [Read More...]
a remarkably vibrant collection of tunes
The songs are short, sweet and full of granny glassed psychedelic touches. ‘You’re Not Dreaming’ is a perfect example of their oeuvre, one part Dukes of Stratosphear, one part Strawberry Alarm Clock and full of Barrett-esque melody. [Read More...]
'.....the real deal and the Galileo 7 has an honesty and directness that can't be fudged.'
Crockford's songs, and the conviction of his performances are the key elements here though - these aren't the tentative doodlings of a sideman, but the confident outpourings of a born frontman who has had the grace and humility to allow others their time in the limelight before claiming his own moment or two. Top band too, with the Higher State's Mole on bass and great vintage organwork from Viv Bonsel providing able support. [Read More...]

I don't think it's a stretch to say that if they were around in the 60's, they would of become one of those timeless names that everyone still praises to this day, some 50 years later.
