THE ULTRA ELECTRIC MEGA GALACTIC….(THE UEMG)
Founded in 2006 by legendary psychedelic guitar wizard ED MUNDELL, Best known for 18 years, 7 albums, and the driving lead guitar master behind legendary stoner rock band MONSTER MAGNET and founder of THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX.
Ed Mundell, one of the true rock icons of the original East Coast stoner rock scene.
When Monster Magnet went on indefinite hiatus in 2006, what was a psychedelic power-house guitar player do?
Ed Mundell started THE ULTRA ELECTRIC MEGA GALACTIC…a no nonsense, psychedelic, space rock orgy built on riffs and classic 70's guitar rock.
Not having to cater to the masses and with absolute disregard to mainstream commercial music industry dictate....
THE UEMG came forth like an acid-trip super nova. A slave to no band and with total creative freedom came one bad-ass psilocybin mind-warp THE UEMG.
Moving from New Jersey to the Los Angeles gave way to new horizons as Mundell joined forces with local musician bass player COLLYN MCCOY (co-founder of Trash Titan, Otep) who can only be described as one mind blowing, badass righteous power-house bassist. Collyn holds down the bass line that gives Mundell the freedom to soar.
In the dark corners of Hollywood, Ed found the three headed beast of drums, RICK FERRANTE (Sasquatch). Ferrante master of his own cosmic destiny unleashes heavy middle eastern influences with tribal cosmic space rock chaos.
Always innovative and a drummer to the stoner underground elite...Ferrante keeps it solid.
In the wake of this mighty trinity of auditory hallucination......came the 2013 self-titled debut album, followed by the extended EP "Through The Dark Matter" in 2014.
THE ULTRA ELECTRIC MEGA GALACTIC.
These interstellar journeymen pray at the altar of Captain Beyond, proselytize in Hawkwind's holy name and sit at the right hand of the church of Tommy Bolin.
Buckle in for the ride, name your poison and turn up the volume on the most original psychedelic space rock album in years. The Ultra Electric Mega Galactic..... An infrared revolution, a bloodless coup, a sonic super group forged by the Omni verse's inexorable gravity commanding the Lion Force.
Eat or be eaten... It's the antidote to the world's parade of lies, and this music is truth…give it a listen.
