"If the Doors & Kennelmus had a baby, the Strangers Family Band is their love child!"
(Valis, Trip Inside this House)
STRANGERS FAMILY BAND exists since summer 2007, the band is from Orlando, FL.
"(... ) A full sensory experience is characteristic of their live performances, which include cascading oil and water projections and the frequent accompaniment of a horn section. The influence of Ashbury-Haight's acid rock, NYC's Factory heyday, and the British psych explosion are evident in their sound. These comparisons do not hold the band down to the limitations of throw-back 'retrodelia' however; instead, the band expounds upon the influence of its predecessors, establishing themselves as new, modern innovators rather than mere revisionists. Comparisons to Syd Barrett, West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, The Doors, and the Beatles have been made as reference points. They have also been compared to The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Black Angels, and The Entrance Band. (...)
The tracks found on their self-released demo are a sample portion of the songs that will be re-recorded for the full-length release."
