feeling does it!
allow the MENTAL DROPS to take you on a trip – expect the unexpected!
Their programme shows their musical versatility:
Short, concise pop songs with catchy, but never shallow melodies alternate with extensive psychedelic epics – sometimes beautiful and dreamy, sometimes infernally dark (like the notorious 'Confessions of an Opium Eater').
Inbetween, there are 60's style garage beat songs , expressive ballads, songs with a slight touch of folk and world music, but also some swing/blues reminiscences. Despite the musical variety you never get the impression of stylistic flaws. No matter what the MENTAL DROPS are playing, you'll hear immediately: "It must be THEM!"
4 individualists, each contributing his own accents and tone colours, have grown into an unmistakable, characteristic sound which blends all stylistic influences into one monolithic block.
Like hardly any other musical group, the MENTAL DROPS succeeded in transferring the psychedelic feeling of the sixties to the new millennium – without indulging in nostalgia – and at the same time in setting new stylistic impulses thanks to their exuberant imagination.
Their live performance mainly consists of own material, besides some newly arranged cover versions.
"The regions of the galaxy in your own head" is the motto of the MENTAL DROPS.

"....Based on the early epics by Pink Floyd, although in their own particular style, the four musicians of the group played mostly self-written song material" ( Die Rheinpfalz, Kaiserslautern, 5.8.96 )
"The self-penned lyrics as well as the music of the MENTAL DROPS were no less exciting than those by Jefferson Airplane & Co" ( Saarbrücker Zeitung, 11.3.1992 )
"Sometimes, you could discern Indian accents, or you found yourself suddenly in Turkey" ( Die Rheinpfalz KL, 27.12.95 )
