Gugun Power Trio

Ok, after that foolishness, here's one I really DO like, from Indonesia, ca. 2004, this band is referred to at
home as "Gugun Blues Shelter" or "Gugun and the Blues Shelter", for reasons unclear to me they are referred to as "Gugun Power Trio" for the American and European markets. They have released a handful of albums in Indonesia, only two in the English-speaking markets, this one ("Far East Blues Experience") and another whcih I don't have (anyone able to help?) entitled "Solid Ground".....

As I understand it, this is something of a collection of tracks from thier earlier Indonesian releases, the basic lineup is Gugun on lead guitar and vocals, Jono Armstrong on bass, and Bowie (I don't make them up) on the drums......this is hard, heavy Cream/Zeppelin/Hendrix influenced stuff, more or less dominated by Gugun's flashy, showy guitar work....anyway, the vocals/lyrics are kind of lacking, but if you like an updated and yet retro Cream-sorta sound, you might take an interest in this one.....really WOULD like to hear some of the original Indonesian releases, where oh where is my old buddy Psychlist?
