A Phil Brodie Band Tribute
SUNS OF NEPTUNE"
. . 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

THE SUNS OF
A NEW ALTERNATIVE VINTAGE ROCK BAND
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
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 SUNS OF NEPTUNE
Gus Isidore: Guitars & Vocals.
Ronald Edward Roesing: Drums
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;
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.

"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.
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)
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
well crafted, beautifully played and obviously inspired! Full of Flavour...
from Hendrix to Buckley! This is Gus Isidore at his bravest and best.

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
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)
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
