Pollen

Mandragora

1998

Delerium DELEC CD 070
The Brighton music scene has alway been a friendly, rambling and eclectic affair, with bands stealing each-other's musicians and influencing eac-other across the divides of genre. Mandragora are one of Brighton's best-loved psychedelic dance outfits, and here make use of a number of local musicians from a variety of backgrounds, to good effect. Ben appears as a session musician.
