Israeli hard rock/prog/psych band founded 1965 in Tel Aviv as The Churchills. After years of local success they were spotted by guitarist Robb Huxley from The Tornadoes, which was touring Israel late sixties. He joined the band and brought them to England where they got a contract with A&M and recorded an unsuccessful album as Jericho Jones - "Junkies Monkeys and Donkeys" (AMLH 68050). This was their second and last for the label. It didn't sell a lot either and was long hidden in the lost gem department before being rereleased on vinyl and CD and rediscovered by lovers of the more adveturous hard rock. For me, who always appreciate well written and skillfully played mind-bending music, it's a true killer. Starting with the furious "Ethiopia", which can be described as an unholy marriage between Love Sculpture's "Sabre Dance" and Pink Floyd's "Interstellar Overdrive", duly officiated by a kraut minister then carried by a mean guitar riff to excessevly pumping drums and bass. And on it goes for four more tracks, some parts soft some stone hard - relatively spaced out, but at the same time so well put together the journey stays secure (exemples below). Only downside is it's impossible to have as background since it catches the attention 100%, making it impossible to to good with other things while listening. 1972 issues also in Italy (Regal Zonophone 3C 062-93933) and South Africa (Same as UK). German 1990 vinyl and CD reissues on Repertoire Records. 2018 Israeli vinyl on Black Gold Records (BG 040). Swedish (unofficial?) 2010 CD on Flawed Gems (GEM 38) came with two bonus tracks. To my knowledge never released in the US. Premiere UK had label as shown here in a thin floppy cardboard sleeve.
