Try the latest recipe for a truly heady elixir: equal parts Collyn McCoy (of Otep fame), Ed Mundell (Monster Magnet/The Atomic Bitchwax), and Rick Ferrante (Sasquatch). Shake, chill, swirl, tilt your head back, and pour directly into your ears. Intoxication will be immediate. This strange brew is called The Ultra Electric Mega Galactic.

Another way to describe it would encourage a run-on sentence, like: Head banging psychedelic space jam Hendrix influenced instrumental stoner rock for the lysergic technicolor future. Or, maybe movie imagery mixed with music geek babble would do the trick, so let’s say: sort of like if Hawkwind and Clutch got their DNA scrambled in The Fly’s transporter machine. Get it?

More to the point, if you like solid, hip-swaying grooves with layered guitar pyrotechnics, this is the band for you. What Mundell hinted at when he formed The Atomic Bitchwax as his solo project apart from Monster Magnet, comes more clearly into focus via The Ultra Electric Mega Galactic. Ed’s inspired use of effects and vintage gear, combined with a no-holds-barred fearless attitude toward razor-edged riffing, and his uncanny ability to coax shrieking wails, shivers, and other echoey mutations out of his guitar, puts him into an esteemed class all his own. Jimi smiles!
