I don't think it's as solid as "Spent Bullets", but I still play it all the way through. Wouldn't take a pass on anything by this guy, Swervedriver was the best guitar band of the 90's, I don't know why they didn't become the most popular band in the world. Probably because they were good.

and Adam Franklin dreams sounds into the ether......
While I would prefer a Swervedriver comeback album and tour, Adam Franklin carries the torch for space rock into a mellow, almost lo-fi glass of warm milk for your cranium.

Adam Franklin's place in musical history is secure to say the least, so it's a pleasure to hear him step out of the realm of Swervedriver with a grouping of songs that are much more thoughtful and concerned, yet still possess waves of guitars that fold around his lyrical visions with a more professional and restrained intensity. While this is a solo outing, much of it's success is do in part to the band he's assembled, consisting of drummer Mikey Jones and Matt Sumrow, both from the guitar driven neo-psych band Heaven, along with Locksley Taylor who manage to maintain the essence of Franklin's history, while at the same time, sparking it with a freshness that will give you a reason to drop his record onto the plater, rather than relying on his past catalog of atmospheric driving rhythms.

Franklin's musical linage and influences are rich and diverse, and he manages to bring them all to the surface on I Could Sleep For A Thousand Years as he's never done before. I caught up with Adam and Matt after their soundcheck at the North Star Bar in Philadelphia and took them both dinner where we covered everything from quality sneaker footwear, legendary concerts, life on the road, and how Brooklyn's really just a small town surrounded by a big city. Though when The Delfonics' song "Didn't I Blow Your Mind This Time" filtered from the restaurant speakers and Adam was singing right along, I had to laugh, glad that I wasn't the only one who digs the oldies. While he wouldn't comment on the meaning behind the band name Swervedriver, it was nice to hear him discuss his power pop influences, which are quite evident on this album. And when you hear his dynamic melodies over-which he's laid unimagined strummings, and jangling laced guitars, I instantly connected the dots.
