60'S GARAGE-PSYCH FROM MUSIC MACHINE!

Biography

WHOLE LOTTA LOVE... Lana is a musician, singer & songwriter from Berlin. Together with Lenny Svilar on guitar they formed their first band Cox Orange in 1995. With Lyricist Marcin Zastrozny they wrote songs in the style of the music from the 60s. (Most of them you can hear on the upcoming album "Order To Love.") In 2001 she moved to California. Soon after her arrival she was asked to play with the Bonniwell Music Machine, her longtime favorite group from the 60's. One year later she was asked by Rudi Protrudi to join The Fuzztones. Since 2005 she has been touring with them through Europe. She has recorded with the Fuzztones two albums (Horny As Hell/2008 and Preaching To The Perverted/2011) and played organ on several other sideprojects. In 2009 she has also performed with The Fuzztones for german TV show ROCKPALAST. In 2010 she recorded her new album ORDER TO LOVE with Lenny Svilar on guitar, Rudi Protrudi on bass, and Alex Tenas on drums. It will be released in February 2011. Butterfly Records has released Loveland's first single "Black Glove" March 2010. A spring tour in Spain, a summer tour in Holland, and a fall tour in Italy shall follow this year... Band Line-Up Lana Loveland - Vocals Lenny Svilar - Guitar Organ - Jojo B. Bass - Slowey Thomsen Drums - Captain Schmidt Lana has also produced 3 records The Fuzztones Horny As Hell (2008) Co-production The Fuzztones Preaching To The Perverted (2011) Co-production Loveland Order To Love (2011) Lana Loveland è una graffiante e talentuosa musicista che agli inizi del 2011 ha esordito (finalmente) con un album solista. Da anni accompagna alle tastiere Rudi Protrudi, leader indiscusso dei Fuzztones, e il suo progetto solista può apparire quasi come una creatura, uno spin off, nato dagli stessi Fuzztones. Musicalmente è infatti supportata dallo stesso Rudi e dagli altri membri attualmente in forza ai Fuzztones; artisticamente però Lana percorre sonorità lunghe un decennio. Non disdegna il garage, ma lo fonde con suoni psycho-pop tipici degli anni ‘60 e che ben si differenziano da quelli dei Fuzztones: ecco perchè sostanzialmente possiamo affermare che – formazioni a parte – si tratta realmente di due progetti ben distinti, ognuno dei quali con una propria identità. Cosa che viene rimarcata anche visivamente durante le esibizioni live, che la vedono protagonista di show dal sapore retrò nei quali indossa stivaletti e tutine aderenti. Niente di punk insomma, solo una gran carica di femminilità pronta ad esplodere. Order To Love, il suo album, ricorda vagamente i Music Machine, quasi ne avesse tratto ispirazione: secondo voi, li ritroveremo anche nella sua top ten? (da Rocklab) Up to now we've known her as the FUZZTONES' keyteaser and former BONNIWELL MUSIC MACHINE organist, but LOVELAND's debut single shows her to be a gifted vocalist and songwriter as well as an accomplished musician. The two original tracks, "Black Glove" and "Missing Illusions" (written 1995 by Loveland and guitarist Lenny Svilar) are from her upcoming smash album, "Order To Love"! What do they sound like? Something like a supergroup comprised of various Strawberry Alarm Clock, Music Machine, Doors and Seeds alumni. Lenny Svilar contributing some fine psych guitar and Rudi Protrudi displaying his impressive bass skills, while drummer Alex Tenas is completing the vibes with his superlative West Coast inspired percussive flair. Lana sings and plays soulful, sexy, and sultry! A psychotropic experience! - Rudi Protrudi
