Music Review: The Nu-Utopians - Imagined: The John Lennon Song Project

Back in 1972, Rex Fowler first appeared on the recording scene with the debut album by his folk/rock duo, Aztec Two Step. Continuing to record and tour to the present day, last year Fowler teamed with another folk mainstay, Tom Dean, to work on a project that grew out of their love for the music of Beatle John Lennon. They ended up creating something very special indeed.Fowler and Dean first called themselves The John Lennon Song Project until the Lennon estate told them that name was not acceptable. "It was rather presumptuous for us to try to use that name," Fowler admits. "The estate contacted us after we planned to play for a World Hunger benefit. They said we could use 'Celebrating the Music of John Lennon' as a sub-title after we came up with calling ourselves the Nu-Utopians. We tried different spellings to refer to the fictional country John and Yoko called Nutopia back in the '70s. We hope his fans will recognize the connection."

Life is what happens when your busy making other plans. John Lennon
