the Freeheat album that almost never was. Exploding on to a hi-fi near you
is the first full-length album from the band who count The Jesus & Mary
Chain, The Gun Club and Earl Brutus amongst their pedigree.
Long awaited LP from these former Jesus & Mary Chain members. "Back On The Water" was a title Ben Lurie suggested, keeping the band's theme (see: 2002 EP "Retox"). Planting Seeds first involvment with the band started back in 1999 with the limited release of "Some Candy Talking: A Fan Tribute To The Jesus And Mary Chain." From there Freeheat contributed their acoustic version of "Back On The Water" to PSR's critically acclaimed "Sunsets and Silhouettes" compilation.

Highbias / July 20006
Though it arrives three years after the bandís dissolution, the debut record by Freeheat is a welcome presence. Formed by Jesus and Mary Chain members Jim Reid and Ben Lurie after that groupís untimely demise, with ex-Gun Club rhythm section Romi Mori and Nick Sanderson, Freeheat continues the Chainís legacy of brooding, fuzzed-out jangle pop. Back On the Water, which is half studio tracks and half live cuts, alternates between sweet and sour, enigmatic and blunt, fragile and forceful, just like its antecedents. Itís too bad Freeheat didnít last, as Back On the Water is an excellent continuance of the Chainís beloved sound. - Michael Toland
