“I imagined Syd Barrett joining New Order with just the kick drum and the 808 state, or whatever it’s called, for the pulse," says John Andrew Fredrick of the black watch about Witches! (July 27th, ATOM Records), his band's 16th (!) album in a prolific career spanning 30 years. Look out for lead single "Georgette, Georgette" coming soon. Hear current single "Oh You Little Witch" (from "The Paper Boats" EP) at PopMatters.
