WOW!!  A Garage-o-Delic 60’s Explosion is what The Creation Factory are all about!!!  This is exactly what happens when the rhythm section (bass/drums) of one of the hottest neo-garage-psych acts of Los Angeles, The Mystic Braves, decides to form a new band!  So, Shane Stotsenberg (bass/vocals) and Iggy Gonzalez (drums/vocals) formed The Creation Factory in 2014 as a recording project but soon they joined forces with three other L.A. and Bay area musicians (Neil Soiland – guitar/vocals, Gabe Pacheco – guitar/vocals and Glenn Brigman – organ) in order to “hit the road” and play shows.  Their debut consists of 11 compositions (original and cover versions) 60’s – garage psych and R n’ B – but artfully filtered through their own multi-colored and multi-shaped musical contact lenses!   “The album takes off with ‘You Be The Judge’, (originally by the Chancellors Ltd.) and with the very first chord, a blast of sounds deluges your whole body! The music along with the harmonically double vocals brings to mind The Byrds covering The Lemon Drops’ ‘I Live In The Springtime’!  ‘Girl You’re Out Of Time’ is a groovy neo-garage-ified version of ‘Mustang Sally’, it’s like the way The Rolling Stones play garage while ‘I Don’t Know What To Do’ is the ‘contact point’ between the American Remains and the British Kinks!  ‘I Want To Be With You’ (originally by Yesterday’s Children), is an approach to revive the garage-o-delic 80s revival of the 60’s!  A groovy and more garage version of ? And The Mysterians’ Without You’ is a fuzzy guitar n’ Farfisa orgy!  Acid soul and garage jangle sounds abound on ‘Shame On You’ (a Neil Ford & The Fanatics cover) while the band returns to their ‘rich-double-vocals’ style with the acidly drenched guitar sounding of ‘Why Can’t You Make Up Your Mind’.  ‘Spring’ dives into the sunny side of California and reminisces all that great L.A. acts of the late 60’s.  ‘The Woods’ (originally by the Nickel Bag) shamelessly flirts with the British Invasion but with a groovy Doors-like aspect!  ‘Ain’t Gonna Let You Stay’ takes a walk down the Sunset Strip and trips us back to the glorious n’ sunny ‘It Happens Everyday’ days of The Lemon Drops.  The album closes with the M-A-G-N-I-F-I-C-E-N-T ‘Hallucination Generation’ – can’t tell if this is a cover of an old unknown 60s band (for sure it’s not The Fuzztones’ song – unless I’m terribly mistaken) – it’s like a perfect match of The Electric Prunes with Yesterday’s Obsession! You get the feel of a Ray Manzarek on keys, Sean Bonniwell on rhythm guitar, James Lowe on Vox guitar, Sky on bass… Oops, seems I lost control here… Anyway, in other words, ‘Hallucination Generation’ is the BEST garage-o-delic song I heard quite a time ago! In conclusion, there are many bands out there trying to ‘revive’ the 60s. The Creation Factory is playing the 60’s the RIGHT way, and that’s a strong and remarkable achievement because there are very very very few new bands that can succeed in that!  Fuzz on and long live the 60s!” - TimeLord Michalis  GREAT!!
