Their first album has to be the closest any band got to emulating the Verve's A Storm In Heaven. By emulating, I mean capturing the passion / creativity / atmosphere, not copying...
(I guess more people have this band catalogued under its later spelling, Seven Percent Solution.)
7% Solution (the shoegaze band from Austin, TX) officially changed their name to Seven Percent Solution because the shitty hardcore band 7% Solution on Hydrahead Records threatened to sue them. Regardless, the two pages ought to be merged.
I think the Seven Percent Solution is more accurate. I was under the impression that Flyer Artists used 7%Solution because it was smaller, so they had more room to add other bands. And since the late 90's Psych/space rock scene was all about ripping off flyers from lates 60's era of Fillmore art.
listened to this band for the first time last night and they sure as shit didn't disappoint even though everything i'd read was pretty glowing. allmusic even said it was like jeff buckley singing for mogwai, haha. first album i've heard is "gabriel's waltz" and it was an instant hit for me.
Psychedelic music? 7% Solution? Haha. I am thinking of the Hydrahead records 7% Solution and they are AMAZING. Their song Postal Service is one of my all time favourites. If someone feels the same -- get in touch!
