dkelvin Because it's a case of musical miracle. T35 years after an underrated masterpiece, a lost of view songwriter is able to reach the same peak with it's follow-up. It could be call gothic prog-folk but it's only great music that sometimes seems to involve Shostakovich. The arrangements are gorgeous, the melodies always inventive and unpredictable, the lyrics marked by extreme lucidity. A must-hear. PS. Tony Durant's voice and way to sing is very similar to Bill Nelson (Be-Bop Deluxe). Favorite track: Fuchsia Song.

about

In a lifetime of music strange things happen. Like Fuchsia, the album that disappeared in '71 and went on to become a cult classic 40 years later. Dream, and never give up. And so, after all these years, comes "Fuchsia II: From Psychedelia to a Distant Place".

released June 10, 2013

2013 sees the arrival of Fuchsia 2- the first proper full Fuchsia studio album since their debut effort 41 years previously. Fuchsia 2 contains fresh compositions and one revised track The Rainbow Song from the original band’s recordings. Again penned and sung by Tony Durant, this new songs retain the ground-breaking spirit of the original Fuchsia. The music on Fuchsia 2 resonates with the same symphonic complexity and melodic depth while possessing a fresh and vibrant contemporaneous energy. .......
The result is music that retains the original Fuchsia spirit and adds a fresh contemporary sheen that does not detract from the grandeur and scope of their original vision. Fuchsia 2 adds to the legend that is Fuchsia. It also creates a new contemporary soundscape and lyrical space for Fuchsia’s musical magic to shine once again.

about

Fuchsia Sydney, Australia

In it's time, the original Fuchsia was groundbreaking. The album encompasses a unique combination of string trio and guitar, bass and drums, and a disregard for conventional pop/folk song formalities.

Now 40 years later, where string ensembles are almost commonplace in folk/popular music, Fuchsia continues to present well-constructed, unusual songs in an unconventional multi dimensional manner.
