Searchin' for Capitola: First Reviews

  •  Read the first reviews of SEARCHIN' FOR CAPITOLA. We are rather satisfied!

In entspannter kreativer Atmosphäre von Frank Mollena (Bambi Davidson, Missouri) im Nürnberger LoneStar Studio aufgenommen, beweisen Limo und Co., dass sie immer noch spannungsgeladenes Songwriting und ihren Stil-Kanon zwischen Psychedelia, Desert-Rock, Americana, Indie-Folk, NuCountry, und Prog-Geschrammel beherrschen. Neben Sänger und Gitarrist Limo legen sich Dorit Lacusteanu an Drums, Percussion und Stimme, Andreas Rösel an Bass und Stimme sowie Gazi an FlowerPower-Orgel, Piano, Synthis und Mellotron mächtig ins Zeug. 


Die heutige Quartett-Besetzung bewegt sich genauso souverän wie WILCO durch den klassischen Rock-Sound, der bei den SHINY GNOMES die Weiten der amerikanischen Prärie mit Beat und Psychedelic von Londons sexy Sixties verbindet (...) Selbst nach über 30 Jahren bleiben die SHINY GNOMES eine Ausnahmeerscheinung, nicht nur in deutschen Landen. Ein Einzelfall der seltenen Art...

Psychedelia and pop are the main components of the music, but the band smartly sprinkles some other genres like folk, Americana, soul, funk and prog into their songs (...) These guys have been performing together for nearly a third century, and it shows in the ease that they have with each other. It’s not garage rock, but psychedelic pop, and even though released in the Autumn, it might make some of the short days ahead a little brighter.



  • On December 27th, 2017 we will present our new album live at the Nuremberg Club HIRSCH: All songs of the new record, and many tunes out of 32 years of band history. 
  • Support: APANORAMA, a terrific electro duo from Nuremberg with awesome experimental voices based by dynamic beats and spheric sounds

We will have a wonderful party, a get together of old friends and new fans - come and join us!
