Those enamored of guitar solos, psychedelic heaviness, and songwriting chops may have already heard Turn Me On Dead Man's two previous Alternative Tentacles releases, God Bless the Electric Freak (Virus340) and Technicolor Mother (Virus362). They return to the Alternative Tentacles fold with their latest salvo at rock godhead, Sunshine Suicide. Sunshine Suicide was recorded over a span of two plus years at four different studios. Nick Doom's addition as guitarist leads to the twin guitar harmonies with mastermind Mykill Ziggy. Waves of heavy rock pound earholes and bend sonic antennae set to Smashing Pumpkins frequencies. Though they have always aimed to please heavy music fans, melodic hooks embed where no other band dares plant the flag.  Exploring themes they've done in the past - escapism, apocalypse, mysticism, and lust - TMODM delve further into "pop" or their conception of it. There are transitional pieces including the sitar "Vitamin Om" and acoustic meandering of "Ink Blot Butterflies". Chris Lyman of Giant Squid keeps the pace across the album, "Blue Dreamy, Amber Waves" gets into prog exploration before settling in to the riff-tastic mode. Jello Biafra even makes a quest appearance on 'Olympus Mons (Jello Shit-Storm Mix)'.  Like an aural flea market, re-tooling the past in a mystic tent, TMODM offers nuggets of glory for those seeking surprise.  Personnel: Mykill Ziggy Nick Doom Chris Lyman Kurt Statham Scott Shanks
