Astral Quest was founded in 2000 by Jean-Marc Devaux (guitar, voice). After many line-up changes,
it now consists of JMD, Martial Baudoin (bass guitar) and Marc Chaniot on drums.

Martial Jean-Marc Marc

Astral Quest being a guitar-based psychedelic rock-blues power-trio, it was a kind of a challenge to choose a Procol Harum song which we could adapt to our style without having to change it completely. Long Gone Geek, B-side of A Salty Dog, seemed to have the qualities required for us to arrange it our way: with a driving 70s blues-rock rhythm, the possibility of a burning guitar solo and soft psychedelic effects ... with a little surprise in the last bars of the song! 

Audio-digital PC recording. Recorded by Martial Baudoin in May 2005 and mixed by Martial and Jean-Marc
on 6 June 2005 at Studio La Corbière (Alièze, Jura, France). Arranged and produced by Astral Quest
