Lyle & Peake (AMP 1003) 1978
Jeremy Lyle and Kenny Peake’s custom 1p is an exceptional mix of hard-edged garage rock, jangly hippie folk and dreamy acoustic songs. The electric stuff will blow you away, rugged basement rhythm guitar coupled with stinging electric leads, bringing a rough Jefferson Airplane kind of sound to ‘Armageddon Blues’, ‘Get Your Life In Tune’, ‘Jesus Is Savior’ and ‘Open Your Heart’, all of which have extensive fuzz guitar soloing, Bass and drums are in there, too (no keyboards). The twosome is equally effective in the unplugged format, their 6 and 12-string acoustic guitars creating soft impressionistic folk/psych moods within titles like ‘White Dove’. The delicate acoustic ballads ‘Such A Long, Long Time’ and ‘Jesus Gave Us Life For Free’ have a fragile sincerity that is intensely moving. A touch of harmonica on ‘Daniel 2:20’, soft Byrds-like jingle-jangle on ‘Love Still Remains’. More climactic fuzz can be found building up the closing ballad ‘We Are The Stillness Of Silence’. An outstanding record and a prime candidate for Christian monster-hood Nice cover painting of a dove. Recorded in Monterey, California. (The Archivist, 4th Edition by Ken Scott).
