Watch Lonnie Holley’s Mad, Psychedelic Soul Unfold in “Six Space Shuttles and 144,000 Elephants” Watch Lonnie Holley’s Mad, Psychedelic Soul Unfold in “Six Space Shuttles and 144,000 Elephants”

2055There was so little I’d known about the man called Lonnie before the other day when there was rumblings of inclusions of Black Lips and Deerhunters on his upcoming LP, Keeping A Record Of It. I’d heard something like “outside artist,” “errant poet,” or was it “enfant inspiré”? Whose to say? Whose to know? Whatever it was might have been noble in its intention but it failed in its delivering anything but the vaguest truth to the innocent and earnest power that is the broad, beautiful improvisational wears of Mr. Holley and his venue of disciplines. Actually, I think the Francophilic inspired infant line might be right. It certainly applies to the wondrously psychedelic clip for “Six Space Shuttles and 144,000 Elephants” embedded below. Expect a confused and glowing review from us soon and make sure to catch Mr. Holley on tour where (we are assured) he will meld hearts and minds with his gentle fortitude.
