Chrome/Helios Creed Tour: Helios Creed will be hitting the
road in September. Helios shall be joined by Aleph on drums, Lux on
bass, and Jerry Page on keyboards/second guitar/metal objects. Check the Helios Creed site for dates and
Records has re-issued 3 of the classic Chrome albums: Alien
Soundtracks, Half Machine Lip Moves, and 3rd from the Sun. They also
have some great T-shirts available as well.
An Apology: I
never mentioned the "Chrome
featuring Helios Creed" shows that happened on the west coast, as
I had thought they were going to be more of a Helios Creed
show. Much to my surprise, the sets have been about half
Chrome and half Helios songs. Tommy Grenas accompanied Bean, Paul
and H for the Oakland, San Francisco and L.A. shows.
Dual Forces DVD: Paul Della Pelle
tracked down the filmmaker of the first Chrome videos. And from the
original masters a
compilation of Chrome and Helios Creed videos was born. More to
verified: The 7" reel tape that surfaced this last summer
has been confirmed authentic. After much ado I have gotten a glimpse
(and listen) of this ultra-rarity. It is indeed Chrome, with some
unreleased tracks as well as alternate versions of songs later released on
Alien Soundtracks. Check the discography for details.
Julian Cope's Chromeology: Julian Cope has reveiewed
a Chrome compilation that he created himself. Read more at the Head
Heritage Unsung "repository for lost and unchampioned rock'n'roll."
Interview with Gary Spain: What began as an
interview by Jani HellÚn, ended up as an article by Gary Spain for the webzine FoxyDigitalis.com. Read
New Album Recorded: Material for a new album was recorded
at The Bubble in Austin Texas on January 20th, 21st, and 25th.
Helios was joined in the studio by Paul Della Pella (percussion), Jeff
Pinkus (bass), Jerry Page (guitar), Fabienne Shine (vocals), and
Blair Bovbjerg (theramin). Helios' recent thinking on the album is
that it will be released as a Helios Creed album, not under the name

New Album from Helios Creed: If you like the guitar sounds
of Chrome circa 1979 - 1982, you're going to love Helios Creed's new album
On the Dark Side of the Sun. The album is currently
available for mail-order purchase from staticwhitesound.
