Dream Machine biography
Founded in London,UK in 2002

DREAM MACHINE hail from London and were formed by Gabriele Tosti (ex THUNDERDOGS CIRCUS ARCHAOS) who wanted to create a new progressive space rock group in 2002. The band first consisted of Tosti (bass), Farley Brian (drums), Julian Adamoli (piano, organ), Tom Harris (saxophone) and Dan (scratch DJ). The name came from a dream that Gabriele Tosti experienced and was finally chosen as he felt it was a more progressive title for this fledgling group.

As for the first official public performance they gave a benefit gig at the Pullens Centre in Kennington, South London in January 2003. This was one of a number of events that culminated in the Stop The War protest in Central London in February. Alex Pym joined at the end of the year and the band was now provided with a prolific guitarist too. DREAM MACHINE was busy furthermore with rehearsing and gigging accompanied by many lineup changes.Several former OZRIC TENTACLES members had collaborations with the band over the course of time.

In 2005 the debut album was released featuring John Egan (flute) and Seaweed on synthesizer developed from the material they had been playing live. 'Trilogia' is containing three long jams expressing the band's style based on spacey rock music with some folk impressions and a high proportion of electronics. A related live gig at Bush Hall, London, featuring a psychedelic lightshow was filmed professionally and has been released as a live performance DVD.

DREAM MACHINE continued to play on festivals, mainly in Great Britain. Seaweed had to quit because of personal reasons and was substituted by Mark 'Mindflux' Fletcher. The band's second album 'The Castle Of A Thousand Universes', this time provided with shorter songs, was recorded by another modified lineup and released in 2008.

Review by Progfan97402
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Ozric Tentacles politics after 2003 seems so messy and confusing, that I was wondering if the Ozric Tentacles was going to implode. John and Seaweed were already history by 2005, by which they were busying themselves with Dream Machine, a British/Italian combo. Ozric Tentacles seemed to have gotten their act together in recent years, even if it's mainly family members, as demonstrated on Paper Monkeys and Technicians of the Sacred. Dream Machine's debut is Trilogia, from 2005, released privately. Unsurprisingly the music is space rock, with more than a passing resemblance to Ozric Tentacles, but with a much calmer, relaxed approach, so if you feel sometimes Ed's guitar playing overwhelms, Dream Machine is a nice alternative. John plays lots of his flute, more than he ever did in the Ozrics, and he even plays an Armenian double reed instrument the duduk. Didier Malherbe of Gong had played the duduk on Gong's Zero to Infinity and 2 0 3 2, so I wondered if John was taking after Malherbe? Seaweed also provides some really nice spacy synth effects as well. I really think this was some nice space rock, but it seemed the group had vanished after a second release. Nice album worth having for those who like this type of space rock.

4 stars What a pleasant surprise! From the very first sounds I was really attracted by this album's music! Short opener is acoustic neo-classic intro, very soon continued by great spacey jazz-rock "Vasta Wazza " composition with some oriental influences and strong Gong roots. Excellent fusion drumming and flute built perfect soundscapes."Dub Dub" is reggae rhythm based compositions, but very airy, full of flute, guitar and percussion.

"Happy Dragon" all are Ian Anderson-like flute, but with bluesy guitar, jazzy bass and drums all around. Fresh and interesting."Vanishing Point" is more psychedelic song, but again - very light and airy."Sugar Glider ?shows you great bass, spacey sound effects and wah- wah electric guitar in fast pulsation.

"Mantra" has its Anduvian flute scent in combination with oriental melody. Eastern winds gave even bigger effect there in songs sound.

Very interesting and quite unusual work. If not too much inventive, music there is so fresh, pleasant and almost hypnotizing, that will return back to listen this album again very soon!

4 stars Compared to 'Trilogia', the band's studio debut, not only line-up changes are to remark - speaking of new members 'Mindflux' Fletcher on synthesizer and drummer Steve Cassidy. The album also holds shorter songs - compact, less jamming. And the whole sound is more eclectic/diversified additionally provided with several asian flavoured ethnic goodies. Ex-Ozric Tentacle John Egan contributes flutes which are charming and harmonizing now - not that contrasting as performed on the 2006 live DVD recorded in London. The DREAM MACHINE has its origin in space rock beyound doubt. But it looks like the band spreaded their wings and diverse other stylistical elements are partially hijacking the sound to other galaxies too.

Opening the Gate to the album's content with some classical tinged acoustic guitar they immediately are fading into the space fusion song Vasta Wazza which combines some of the album's basic elements. Here we have an impelling bass and drum appearance in a heavy mood (supported by percussion), spacey guitar/synths and eastern styled flutes. This is already referring to jazz rock but much more the great grooving Sugar Glider containing various keyboard contributions from synthesizer to organ. Dub Dub - the title speaks for itself - is provided with a raggae vibe evolving to a classic space rocker with sentimental echoed guitar work. You can detect acoustic piano on Happy Dragon which even has a bluesy origin whereas other songs like Mantra are easy-going and nearly chilling on the other hand.

The title song is on hold for the finale. One from the heavier side again which shows them rocking with duelling guitar and wind instruments. For some time I was wondering if the label space rock is still suitable for this album. But as for the final conclusion I can state they have simply expanded their horizon integrating several other influences. An enjoyable album with a great flow alternating between mellow and heavy parts - I like it very much. Gong fans will be delighted too, I'm sure.

— First review of this album —
4 stars DREAM MACHINE plays at the Bush Hall in London in November 2005 to promote their debut album 'Trilogia'. As the title implies three space rock jams are presented - even more extended than on the regular album. Founding members Gabriele Tosti (bass) and keyboarder Julian Adamoli are aboard, plus John Egan (wind instruments) who is also known for his collaboration with Ozric Tentacles. Regular member Seaweed, another OT ex-band mate is substituted by Joie Hinton at the synthesizer on this evening. Additionally we have drummer Maurizio Rossi and Alex Pym (guitar) completing the line-up.

Besides the fact that some crew members are having an Italian origin Egan offers multilingual announcements - space rockers are international of course! Fortunately the video mix is produced not that spectacular and turbulent - very suitable as for my taste - capturing the concentrated acting band members during the show with alternating views. And the professional colorful trippy lightshow makes this gig to an extraordinary experience finally. Very special by the way is the total view featuring a sparkling candelabra.

The 80 minutes lasting recording is devided in three songs - so it's not difficult to notice that the band's emphasis is on extended improvisations. But you have to follow up the whole gig for to state that this is well structured too. Bass, guitar and flute are placed to the front on the stage, maybe one can say representing the band's more soloing section whereas drums and keys are serving the solid background in the majority. Invisible Maze opens the gig. The first minutes are reserved for an ambient sound check preparing for the lift-off and then Rossi enters with his beat - all engines are running now immediately with propulsive drive! Alex Pym is convincing with his emotional echoed way of guitar playing. Gabriele Tosti surprises with much varity on his bass in opposite to a monotonous behaviour which is the trademark of some space rock bands.

As for both key instruments you will detect some nice electric piano and organ additions by Julian Adamoli and Joie Hinton is responsible for the spheric, swirling and bubbling moments. The band plays as an entity. Consisting of alternating ups and downs - or you can say culminations and recovery phases - the song structure is space rock typical. The same on the next song Macchina Dread initiated by a relaxed chilling raggae/dub vibe. Announced enthusiastically by Tosti Logia Dei Sogni is the core with a total length of more than 30 minutes. This is all provided with more stylistical varity starting jazz rock tinged first but also consisting of some weird parts with transitions to krautrock I would say.

Lovers of extended space rock jamming will enjoy this one. John Egan offers an interesting folksy ethnic contrast to the band's rocking elements with his flutes. Not intending to diminish the others I especially want to point out Alex Pym's conspicious guitar work. You shouldn't miss that!

Thanks to rivertree for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
