As My Sun Continues to Set
Loudhailer Electric Co. are Lou Duffy-Howard vocals & bass, Richard Duffy-Howard acoustic guitars, Jeff Parsons lead guitars and Rich Walker drums. Nexus features Lou, Richard, Jeff with Dexter Duffy-Howard guesting on violin. Recorded by Lou, Jeff recorded his guitar parts at his home. We mixed and mastered the songs between us, passing them to and fro until they were ready. Our usual lineup includes live drums so these songs will be different again in our live set and subsequent recordings.

NEXUS is the third collection of songs by Loudhailer Electric Co., original psychedelic sounds featuring members of seminal cult bands Red Guitars, Dead Fingers Talk and The Planet Wilson.
Nexus is preceded by studio albums Cursus and Morpheus:
“Cutting edge, psychedelic music of the highest quality.” Tom Robinson show on BBC 6 Music.
Universal Soundscape Album of the Year: “Cursus is a wonderful album featuring nine original tracks of psychedelic sounds underpinned with a myriad of references to folk, classic rock and other genres. The music is highly atmospheric, immersive and hypnotic with the ability to transport the listener to another time and place.” Across The Universal Soundscape
“C’mon, we’re gonna take you on a trip (the opening line of Night Heron) fits the whole album on two levels. Lyrically, the trip is like an open top bus ride around their locality with tour guide Lou giving you the lowdown. Musically, it’s more of a psychedelic trip with folky influences and some stunning playing.” Davey Hammond, Sounds Magazine
“…a magic album. What really draws out the juice is driving through the forest at night with the windows down – wind blowing my hair everywhere – playing it LOUD. I am sure the BIG lizards and bandicoots, snakes and owls think I’m extra-terrestrial as I whizz by. It is a very very rich experience…” Jungle Jim Ward, Byron Bay, New South Wales.
