Satellite Paradiso is the new all-star project from John Ashton, formerly of The Psychedelic Furs. Akin to his celebrated contemporaries, Johnny Marr, Will Sergeant and The Edge, John Ashton is that rare breed of player whom you can identify in a single note or chord. The album finds the iconic guitarist still pushing the sonic boundaries he forged a generation ago. A little help from his friends has serendipitously shaped the crew for Ashton's voyage into a 20-piece ensemble for the ages, including bassists Gail Ann Dorsey (David Bowie, Lenny Kravitz) and Sara Lee (Gang of Four, B-52s, Todd Rundgren); drummer Paul Ferguson (Killing Joke); guitarist Cheetah Chrome (Dead Boys, Rocket From the Tombs); Mercury Rev's Anthony Molina and Jonathan Donahue; Flo & Eddie's Mark Volman (The Turtles, Frank Zappa, T.Rex); and original Furs members Duncan Kilburn (sax) and Roger Morris (guitar, keys) -- just to name a few. Powerhouse vocalist Fred Schreck (The Ancients, Crush) and drummer/multimedian Frank Coleman (Bentmen/Secret Agent) are among a number of Ashton's discoveries pushing the music in exciting new directions. Satellite Paradiso gives Ashton a new platform, liberating him to go where no six-string pioneer has gone before. The music explodes in the kind of glorious, insanely catchy, melodic rush that typifies the best of The Furs, while clearly setting its own agenda for the future. // reviews // "A monstrous, swaggering wall of sound." - VIVE LE ROCK (UK) "Akin to his celebrated contemporaries, Johnny Marr, Will Sergeant and The Edge, John Ashton is that rare breed of guitar player whom you can identify in a single note or chord." - HUFFINGTON POST "John Ashton unveils SATELLITE PARADISO, a long-gestating all-star project that explores cosmological questions uniting science, nature, and temporality with a totalizing virtuosity. Distortion becomes a palpable electromagnetic field as Ashton embarks on a Dante-esque sonic journey through a rhythmic wormhole in space-time that leads somewhere between 1984 and a timeless utopian future." - THE VILLAGE VOICE "With its virtuoso riffs, sonic swirls, sassy sax, melancholic cello and powerful vocals, SATELLITE PARADISO is music of the highest calibre." - MANCHESTER REVIEW (UK)
