Hoopy Frood biography

Last update: 2008-02-10 15:50:26

Musically, Frood is the result of a range of influences. It is not for the makers to decide on the style ? we simply serve the music and it makes itself, so we can only quote "Floyd crossed with Sphongle", "kind of like trippy folk music", "a unique multidimensional blend of psychedelic-folk and groovy-electro" and our favourite quote "we suspect the work of hippies".

The original ideas and concepts start with Rich and Steve who have been working on Floyd/Zep style projects since 2001 before discovering the versatilities of electronic recording and its masters such as OTT and Shpongle. Deep and mystical ideas provide the theme. Then, once the story has been set, it is unleashed upon fellow Froodsters - Chris, Myshell and Frankie - who help to give it life.

Our first offering, ?Psychonaut?, was released in 2004 with the help of our friends at Amboworld and it has sold, albeit in a modest capacity, all over our fragile earth. Notable performances to date have been supporting Ozric Tentacles in Brighton in March 2005 (see a video and pictures here ) and the Synergy Project at London's SeOne club, among other memorable evenings in the summer of 2005.

We have a message for those who wish to listen, or simple tunes for those who don?t. We believe in compassion, tolerance, and the importance of exploring the inner-self. "A great revolution of character in just one man will help achieve a change in the destiny of a nation and, further, will cause a change in the destiny of all mankind". It is with this thought that we take Frood on the next step in its evolution.
