The music of Fantasyy Factoryy is deeply rooted in the sound of the 60s/70s psychedelic Underground scene. It´s handmade – it sounds original – it´s exciting. Fantasyy Factoryy have developped their own style, although it is possible to hear traces of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Pink Floyd and even Jethro Tull. Genuine, but without denying the history of Rock music. The classical three-piece line up enables the musicians to display as many different atmospheres as possible. Guitar-dominated, but with a lot of improvisational interplay between the members, their soundscapes show that they reached their aim, which is to transfer positive aspects of the music of the past into the present.
So let's move back to their history...
Fantasyy Factoryy was founded in 1994 by guitarist, singer, songwriter Alan Tepper. After some time on the live circuit, he recorded his debut album ''Ode To Life'' with two studio musicians in the prestigious Sun Dial Studios in London (1995). The album was released on both vinyl and CD, as were nearly all Fantasyy Factoryy recordings so far. Drummer Dr Cosmos joined the band in 1996, and the follow-up ''Tales To Tell'' was welcomed by critics and fans alike, as it was also the debut of guest musician Rainer Opiela on flute. ''If I Like It, I Do It'' came out soon after and received equal critical acclaim. In between each album, the band recorded numerous songs for tribute-albums and Various Artists Compilations, as you can check in the discography.
Their best album yet, ''Dreams Never Sleep'', was released in 2000, again with Rainer Opiela on flute. Organ player Markus Dassmann joined the band on two tracks. The record is available on CD and on double vinyl. At the moment, Alan Tepper is finishing the studio work for a double 7“, which will come out on Italy´s Psych Out label. And after that work is done, the band are going to rehearse for the new album, which will feature more musicians than any other Fantasyy Factoryy record.
