It was only a matter of timeTijuana Cartels influences are so broad that a new album release that digs deep into the Australian counter-culture was bound to happen sooner or later. Its called Psychedelicatessen. You might say the albums been in the making for roughly forty years.The seed for Psychedelicatessen was planted way back in 78 when Double J broadcast a psychedelic road trip from Brisbane to Sydney called Whats Rangoon to you is Grafton to me. What was then a quintessentially Australian gonzo rant is now a cult classic radio play that intrigued TCs singer/songwriter/guitarist, Paul George, for years. Psychedelicatessen is Tijuana Cartels tribute to the play and to its author, Russell Guy.I was strangely nervous about approaching Russell to ask him to use his material, says Paul. He was this edgy, gonzo hippie from my adolescent imagination so I didnt know quite what to expect or what approach to take.He neednt have stressed over it too much. Psychedelicatessen does it for Russell Guy who still lays on the gonzo rant: Songs like Kellys Existential Dilemma, Leaving London, Lost My Head, Spend Your Money and Black Magic Superstar chart a course to a place weve yet to imagine, says the author.This new album pings on cruise control as it translates, engages and navigates the worldwide plague of earthquakes, terrorism, crime, corruption, scoffers, mockers, volcanic eruptions and psycho-babble, while segueing into a groove that the Gobble-up Machine cant follow.
