"THE SUNS OF NEPTUNE"

Gus Isidore
Guitarist~Singer~Writer~Composer~Producer.
Review ~ ". . . In the case of Gus Isidore, the influence his music had on Seal is immediately apparent the moment he strokes his guitar. At times subtle and sensitive, at others bold and majestic. It is just obvious when playing electric why he has been compared to Hendrix and a natural choice for Peter Gabriel. . . " Like Hendrix & Albert King he plays left handed with the guitar strings reversed.

THE SUNS OF NEPTUNE
A NEW ALTERNATIVE VINTAGE ROCK BAND

HISTORY
Upon a chance meeting via a mutual friend Gus Isidore & Ron Roesing took a step back
to create a "New Alternative Vintage Rock" outfit called THE SUNS OF NEPTUNE.
The sound draws from classic bands like Led Zepplin, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd etc.
with a modern alternative Rock twist. They have a history that spans back a long way as accomplished musicians,songwriters and performers in the music industry. They also have professional experiences in a variety of musical styles and genres that span from A to Z which indeed makes their hybrid collaboration of writing truly unique. They are also a writing and production team with their own 48 track studio "Limehouse Sounds" and at present have several projects such as DollyO, The Twits, & film and TV soundtracks. The Twits projects has gained immense interest as this is based on a special 3D animation cartoon style Rock band.

The past experience of these musicians certainly shines through in the 4 tracks on this EP. This is rock with a fresh difference. The sound is clear, clean, projecting and tight, after listening to the mp3 samples I was left hungry for more. A few added notes of interest of who is involved with this CD and the band are the engineers;
Eddie Kramer ~ engineer /producer of numerous historical acts dating back to 1967 including Hendrix, Led Zep, Beatles, Kiss and Paul Reeve, engineer/producer of Muse, Supergrass, David Hallyday.

REVIEWS

"The heart and soul of Hendrix has risen" - Mark Wolfson: Director of Production & Development Playtone/EpicRecords

"Sounds great and tight! Good vibe. Eddie Kramer did an excellent job. Songs grow on you" - Hernando Courtright : PR. Courtright Mgnt.Inc. / Fore Reel Ent.

With poorly constructed music being passed off as the next big thing becoming ever so prevalent these days, The Suns of Neptune put forth an extremely refreshing sound that lies somewhere in that daunting space between the comforting past and the nervous future. Well done! can't wait for a full LP. - review by Andy Devlin ( Itunes Canada)

I downloaded the EP & I really liked it. It reminds me of lots of classic 70's rock records and I can hear the Hendrix influence. The sound is really tight and I love some of the bass riffs. Gus Isidore has an amazing voice. One of those voices which kind of hits you and leaves you dazed. Bit like being hit by a bus at high speed!!!! We would love to put a review on the Neve site. - David Lenehan Director : AMS Neve

Powerful, well crafted, beautifully played and obviously inspired! Full of Flavour... from Hendrix to Buckley! This is Gus Isidore at his bravest and best. More Please!!!!!! Dude 64 (Itunes UK)

I've been looking forward to listening to The Suns of Neptune and have had it in the office CD player for the last few days!!!! ...it doesn't disappoint and has a really nice vibey feel to it - Simon : Gus Guitars

Great music, very drum driven, I especially like in ASBOS when you suddenly hear the electric guitar hauntingly in the background. Quite an amazing track.. I keep listening to it!! Gus sustained that note well on Xenium at the end!! Loved the whole EP .. it seems to have the rock of celtic/tribal/hippy feel with a modern slant to it, very clever music, powerful and oozes with feeling. It's great to hear so much drumming again, Ron is some "wow ~ awesome " drummer. All round brilliance from these musicians.. More of this please. - Beverley Turner (music reviewer/writer, Sth Yorks)

Once was not enough and the sample tracks don't do this album justice. You must buy the album to truly appreciate; everytime you listen, you'll discover anew, I could not stop listening! Sublime hi-energy with subtle "alternative blues" like undertones..my words are not enough! The great vocals and guitar work of Gus Isidore (Seal, Peter Gabriel, Phil Lynott), and the titanium sounds of drummer Ron Roesing (The Marked, Smashing Pumpkins, Zwan), compliment each other perfectly! - (Y-Noy Itunes USA)
