Satellite Paradiso, the new music project by John Ashton (Psychedelic Furs)

Music: John Ashton – Satellite Paradiso

Satellite Paradiso, the new music project by John Ashton (Psychedelic Furs)“A monstrous, swaggering wall of sound.” – Vive Le Rock (UK)

SATELLITE PARADISO is the new music project from John Ashton, formerly of The Psychedelic Furs (“Pretty in Pink,” “Love My Way”). Akin to his celebrated contemporaries, Johnny Marr, Will Sergeant and The Edge, Ashton is that rare breed of guitar player whom you can identify in a single note or chord.

The album features some 20 world class musicians, including bassists Sara Lee (Gang of Four, B-52s) and Gail Ann Dorsey (David Bowie, Lenny Kravitz); drummer Paul Ferguson (Killing Joke); guitarist Cheetah Chrome (Dead Boys, Rocket From the Tombs); Mercury Rev’s Anthony Molina and Jonathan Donahue; Flo & Eddie’s Mark Volman (The Turtles, Frank Zappa, T.Rex); and original Furs members Duncan Kilburn (sax) and Roger Morris (guitar, keys) – just to name a few.

Powerhouse vocalist Fred Schreck (The Ancients, Crush), bassist Robert Burke Warren (The Fleshtones) and drummer Frank Coleman (Jayne County, Bentmen) complete the core of the live band.

“SATELLITE PARADISO explores cosmological questions uniting science, nature, and temporality with a totalizing virtuosity. Distortion becomes a palpable electromagnetic field as Ashton embarks on a Dante-esque sonic journey through a rhythmic wormhole in space-time that leads somewhere between 1984 and a timeless utopian future.” – The Village Voice.

For fans of The Psychedelic Furs, Echo & the Bunnymen, The Cure, David Bowie, The Black Angels, Pink Floyd.
