411 Free Mars by Lusk

Free Mars

Volcano Entertainment
Release year
Paul D'Amour, Chris Pitman

On the 1997 album Free Mars by Lusk, a potent mixture of psychedelia, shoegaze, and experimentation makes for a heady trip worth taking

Author & Special Guests

There are not many 1990s albums that fall under the "alternative rock" banner that prominently feature harp and horns the way the lone 1997 album Free Mars by Lusk does. The fact that it does so featuring a wide cast of characters from bands such as Tool (Paul D'Amour), Failure (Greg Edwards), Guns 'n Roses (Chris Pitman) and Medicine (Brad Laner) only adds to the unique and intriguing charm of this one-and-done release.
