About This Act

From The Nephews and a Niece on Facebook: 

Obscure even to most San Diegites, The Nephews conceptual take on garage and psychedelia is the product of the isolation of exceptional taste. The band seemed to be in a constant state of evolution. I got turned onto them around 1993 and at that point The Nephews had already been around for at least eight or nine years. They released a record at this time titled The Heliocentric Sounds of the Nephews and although an obvious nod to Sun Ra, few were name-checking him at that time. Singer/guitarist Tim Ellison’s zine Rock Mag/ Modern Rock Mag, was/is similarly cherished by me as one of the finest exports from my fishing village. — Swami John Reis
