The Magic Lanterns – Biding my time


This is a find from my junior cratedigging days in the eighties. I was in a phase where I had started listening to sixties garage rock (Nuggets…) and would pick up anything that seemed to fit into that. Magic Lanterns was promising by name, but did not deliver any fuzz. It took me several years and some expansion into other genres to discover that this was a gem. Well, at least this b-side, a funky soul rock number. The a side, Give me love, is pretty lame.
Apparently, this band had some well known artists passing through the roster, like Godley and Creme, and Albert Hammond. And they had one Oz Osborne on bass. No, not that Ozzy.
