After a handful of years spent experimenting with a broad spectrum of psychedelic music while based in Newark, Delaware, two of this band's founding members relocated to Los Angeles. There they found like-minded musicians, and for a while, Spindrift included members of Psychic TV, Brian Jonestown Massacre and Warlocks. The sound the group created at the time has since evolved into a mixture of melancholy and burnished passion as heard in the soundtracks of spaghetti Westerns and '70s exploitation movies, and the brooding, fiery moods that course through Spindrift's music have been utilized to great effect in various TV shows and movies. The fruits of Spindrift's labors were released last year on the aptly titled Classic Soundtracks, Vol. 1. Live, the band lives up to the implied hype.
