Richmond Road Riot rules


























The Achterbahn Band's self released Richmond Road Riot LP seems to be the only record the group from Delmenhorst in northern Germany released. Now that is a damn shame, because in my little world Richmond Road Riot is a wonderful and timeless crown jewel...
But it always gives me a hard time when trying to talk/write about it. It's not easy to describe their very eclectic style of music - not really Progrock, not 100% Pop, Jazz? yes maybe..... Dammit I hate this category stuff! Maybe it's just incredibly good pop music with hints of progressive rock and easy latin á la High Llamas. And whatever it may be, it doesn't sound like "1979" to my ears. More like "sometime between 1969 and 2009".
Please get an impression and tell me what you think about it!

Cheers, Basso

Dear Basso,
Hello,

This might be a kind of weird request but Gianni recommended me come up the case here in your blog.
It seems that the only person who can grant my request is you.

It's about a rare Italian album mooted here:

I hope there is still some hope to get this album shared here.

Thanks in advance.
Bruno.
