Bonniwell Music Machine - Ignition lp (Sundazed)


"...This collection of incredible rarities mines material from across the band’s career, from their pre-“Talk, Talk” 1965 demos as the Ragamuffins to their final experimental 1969 recordings. Compiled by Bob Irwin and Sean Bonniwell, these 14 tracks (19 on the compact disc) offer an intriguing look at group’s rich catalog.

The Ragamuffins’ demos capture the band at a point of transition, evolving from folk rock to their later, more aggressive style. “Two Much,” for example, finds them following a typical pop template underscored with an unmistakable sense of foreboding. Another Ragamuffins track, “Push Don’t Pull,” is a strident, blues-based number propelled by a martial drumbeat. Jumping ahead to “Dark White,” a terrific 1969 outtake, the foreboding moves front and center, enveloping the listener as the track slowly builds to a climax. Also included is rare single “Advise and Consent,” a showcase for Bonniwell’s soulful singing.

The perfect compliment to the band’s released ouput, Ignition adds an essential chapter to the Music Machine story. Detailed notes by Bonniwell and Music Machine expert Mike Stax (of Ugly Things magazine fame) guide you through each selection with enlightening insight. Mastered from the original analog session tapes by Bob Irwin and Sean Bonniwell with painstaking precision, these tracks fire faster than brand-new spark plugs. Let the countdown to Ignition begin!" - Sundazed
