Mind Spiders- Prosthesis LP. Fourth album in 5 years from Mark Ryan’s shadowy, shape-shifting band the Mind Spiders. Based in Fort Worth, TX, the Mind Spider’s launched pretty much immediately after Mark’s last project, the well-loved and highly-influential Marked Men went on indefinite hiatus. Earliest recordings were Mark playing pretty much everything, but since then the Mind Spiders lineup has been continually evolving, with Mark remaining the sole songwriter and constant member. On this new album the lineup is Mark Ryan (Marked Men, Radioactivity, High Tension Wires, etc), Daniel Fried (Bad Sports, Radioactivity, Video, High Tension Wires), Mike Throneberry (Marked Men) and Peter Salisbury (Baptist Generals/Sub Pop Records). Each Mind Spiders album has alway been very different from the last, but ‘Prosthesis’ is a bit less of a stylistic departure from their last album ‘Inhumanistic’. Keyboards and guitars blend seamlessly into ominous dark pop explorations incorporating elements of postpunk, bedroom pop and krautrock influences with Marks bright shining voice cascading high atop the mix. And this is also the first Mind Spiders album to be recorded at Mark and Jeff Burke’s new recording studio (Cool Devices) making it their fullest sounding album to date. THIS IS THE LIMITED VERSION OF THIS LP ON CLEAR WAX!
