Black Light Syndrome
The Story
"Black Light Syndrome" was created when ex-Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens, bassist Tony Levin and drummer Terry Bozzio went into the studio for four days to record an album. What they came up with was this incredibly creative mixture of progressive rock, jazz fusion and world concepts. The first track, "The Sun Road" was the first piece to surface by the grace of the archetypes of the band's collective unconscious. The rest of the tracks came together one of two ways: either mapping out a few sections as signposts, or with very little discussion and then the three musicians allowed the muses to use them as they would. Stevens later added additional melodies with affected guitar, Coral Electric Sitar, Ramirez Acoustic and Roland Synth Guitar. Amazing work!
