Less than eighteen months after the debut album Endless Sea comes the follow-up LP Blue Lake. What began as John Lever's project designed as a catharsis in the wake of his split from Chameleonsvox has become something special in its own right – something reigniting the magic found on those 4 studio albums from The Chameleons.

Anger is an energy as Johnny Rotten once said – but what you do with that energy is what counts to me. The Red-Sided Garter Snakes use that energy wisely.
Musically, we are drawn into post-punk, shoegaze, britpop, and psychedelic worlds. Lyrically, these songs are imbued with a sense of poetic mysticism.

It'd be easy to say that it is a group worth exploring just because John Lever was the drummer for the legendary Manchester band The Chameleons – but the truth is that the whole is by far greater than the sum of its parts (to quote the original hipster, Aristotle).
