Soup Dragons-Lovegod

Hard to find U.S. version of 1990 album incl: “I’m Free” + 2 bonus tracks.The Soup Dragon’s only commercially successful release, Lovegod was a definitive album of a short-lived but blissful movement in alternative dance that began in the late ’80s and ended in the early ’90s. Lead with fellow Scotsmen Primal Scream and other proto-trip-hop bands like the Happy Mondays, the Charlatans U.K., the Stone Roses, and the Farm, the scene revolved around community–masses joined in various forms of often chemically enhanced euphoric states, dancing till breakfast and beyond. Like Primal Scream’s Screamadelica, this album follows a path clearly cut by the Rolling Stones. Their hazy, blues-on-Ecstasy psychedelic grooves fueled the club-going shoe gazers swaying in place for what could have been forever, while at the same time uplifted souls (and soles) with money-maker shakers like “Backwards Dog” and a cover of the Stones’ “I’m Free.” Because of its combination of timeless rock influences and its preturntablism dance sensibility, Lovegod has aged well, losing little of its capacity for elation. –Beth Massa

About Dragon Mystic

I fell in love with dragons when I read Tea With the Black Dragon, and never looked back. Not the clunky winged Medieval dragons that ate cows, the graceful Asian dragons that could fly without wings. Later I discovered the elegant Welsh dragons, red and white, as described by R.J. Stewart in his books on the historical Merlin.
