    ALVA

    Ja Tik Butu

    [engl] Originally released 1978 on Pennine Records, two catalogue numbers before they issued the famouse "Rosemary Lane" album by Tickwinda! Even European music might have quite an exotic feeling and Latvian ethno rockers ALVA are the living proof. Based in England at the time they released their sole album “Ja tik butu” they fell straight into the folk rock genre with their cross of melancholic, even slightly psychedelic rock and colorful, mystifying Baltic folk and all of this in the middle of the UK punk explosion. So you will certainly be aware of the raw edge the rock part of their music bears. But this is just the fundament of the songs on which anthem like haunting melodies grow to entwine around your mind like ivy. The result is mind expanding and you can be sure that this is something you will hardly have experienced before in such a radical form. Folk, melancholic rock and laid back punk rock melted into one enchanting sound with the Eastern, the Baltic folk being holding the biggest share in the overall picture. The punk feeling on the other hand is the result of a rather energetic playing while all musicians are as skilled as a band should be. ALVA leave the sloppy performance always associated with punk rock to others. They even reach a post punkish area with the strange, yet also anthem like and humorous “Vilcenu dziesma”, sixth track on this colorful album. ALVA could have inspired fans from 1960s garage rock to haunting Eastern European gypsy folk to more sophisticated punk rock and become a major force in the rock world if the business was just a little bit more fair. This album is like a trip in spirit through an idyllic landscape most of the time but there is always a feeling of uproar backing up the flaming melodies. Listen with a free mind and you will be dragged into a world of sheer beauty and joy.

    ANALOGY

    The Suite

    [engl] PLUS BONUS TRACK! Back in 1972 German progressive rock band ANALOGY released its sole classic “Analogy” and even scored a deal for Italy but soon seemed to have faded into obscurity. Nobody really was aware of a recording named “The suite” that happened around 1980 and presents the folky side of ANALOGY who seemed at least quite creative for a time when electronic pop took over the whole music scene from disco sounds and poisoned the minds of musicians and fans even more. ANALOGY went into the opposite direction and reached out for musical realms that have been visited by legendary English acts like TREES, FAIRPORT CONVENTION or STEELEYE SPAN a decade or longer ago. Dramatic and powerful rock with a progressive edge meets mystical and magical British folk in a way that you might think this is rather an English or Irish original band from 1972 than a bunch of Germans about to cross the threshold to the 80s when music went plastic. This is handmade and the musicians play with a simmering passion. Two epic compositions were originally part of “The suite” but for this mighty reissue a bunch of bonus tracks has been unearthed from the vaults to add even more value to this gem. You will automatically be dragged into a world like a fairytale when you turn on this record even though it all just happens in your imagination. Several passages have a theatrical approach and feel like music from a stageplay and movie like “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” or records good old MEAT LOAF has recorded in the late 70s but those aspects are only tinges of color in an overwhelming sound picture drawn by a truly progressive band. For everybody who loves the heavier HORSLIPS and epic stuff like OMEGA with their “Suite” from 1974. This album develops passage for passage and makes this journey into your dreams a worthwhile trip.

    In the land of silversouls

    Der erste Gedanke, der mir bei dieser Platte durch den Kopf schießt, ist eindeutig Sonic Youth. Abgesehen von der eingängigen Struktur der Melodien und der noisigen Gitarre, schreit der abwechselnde Gesang von Coni Duches und Martin Guevara, deren Stimmen Kim und Thurston´s zum verwechseln ähnlich klingen, geradezu danach. Aber trotzdem ist das Trio aus Spanien weit mehr als ein Abklatsch, immer wieder driften sie in wesentlich bluesigere Gefilde, auf endlose Higways durch die Wüste, in Gefilde der frühen Black Rebel Motorcycle Club und vereinen Einflüsse rund um die 90er, bis hin zu David Bowie und Velvet Underground. Alles zusammen ist erstklassig umgesetzt und ein dicker Tipp für Fans der genannten Bands!!

    Hardpsychedelicsound aus Spanien. Das 3. Album wendet sich von den einstmaligen Heroen Blue Cheer ab und nun mehr dem Spacejamsound früher Ufo zu. Wer dann schon ins Ufo gestiegen ist, sieht am Horizont Hawkwind den Weg weisen. Wer hunderte Konzerte gespielt hat, weiß zu jammen, und dies authentisch, wie es sich für Früh-Siebziger Sound gehört. Das es sich um Spanier handelt bemerkt man nicht, es klassische Vintage-Produktion.

    DIES IRAE

    First

    [engl] German proto heavy metal and proto doom metal has always been more of an underground topic due to the fact that most bands only reached a regional level in every aspect. DIES IRAE are certainly something of an exception to the rule when it comes to the quality. What you get here is a heavy and dark music with open song structures that leave much room for experimentation. Despite the fact that the simmering fuzz guitar cuts through your burning soul like a chainsaw there are still many parts in each song showcasing a fondness for playful jazz inspired passages where all musicians can prove their skills and the whole band still conjures a gloomy atmosphere. Except for the short interlude “Salve Eumel” which is just some Latin babbling. But you feel the light footed swing the musicians have while playing in those certain sections. In other cases DIES IRAE go utterly crazy in a psychedelic freak out fashion. We have to remember this album came out in 1971 and musicians as well as fans quite often were completely out of their mind. Trippy moments are given on “First” in abundance in between the hard hitting heavily grinding doom outbursts. Nobody was even eager to call it doom yet but all ingredients were there. Think of a jamsession with BLACK SABBATH and AMON DÜÜL II and you come at least close to something that could sound like DIES IRAE. This album is highly original and unique and definitely has a place among the greatest KRAUTROCK albums of all times. You can literally hear the acid doing its work but in a very skillful way. Friends of proto metal from the early 70s who dig a progressive edge with their music and have a fondness for trippy psychedelic rock shall grab a copy of this beautiful reissue for originals on PILZ Records fetch prices above 1500,00 US$. And this is definitely an album worth spinning every once in a while. Turn on, tune in, drop out!!!

    Guru Guru

    Hinten

    [engl] Guru Guru is a German Krautrock band formed in 1968 as The Guru Guru Groove by Mani Neumeier (drums), Uli Trepte (bass) and Eddy Naegeli (guitar) later replaced by American Jim Kennedy (guitar). In time for their debut in 1970, Ax Genrich had replaced Kennedy to solidify the classic Guru Guru line up. Guru Guru were related to the free jazz music scene both through their work with Swiss pianist Irène Schweizer and through Neumeier, who had already won several jazz prizes. The band was also influenced by psychedelic rock artist, such as Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, Rolling Stones and early Pink Floyd. Among the band's friends were Amon Düül, Can and Xhol Caravan, with whom Guru Guru played jam sessions. Guru Guru's live performances in the late 1960s and early 1970s were politically left-oriented. They organized concerts together with the Socialist German Student Union, read political texts between the songs, and sometime played at the jails. Their shows were extravagant and anarchistic, some of the musicians lived together in a commune in German Odenwald region, experimented with hallucinogens (one of their songs is titled The LSD March/German: Der LSD-Marsch). Mani Neumeier is one of the organizers of the annual

    JUPITER LION

    s/t

    [engl] Get in to a car with a full tank, throw yourself towards the first motorway you can find and build up miles and miles without ever looking into the rear-view mirror. That's the spirit that made Kraftwerk start up nearly fifty years ago and it looks like its where Jupiter Lion are starting, only that the motorways this Valencian trio are driving on aren't in Germany, their up there between Venus and Uranus. It's not the Milky Way but the Jupiter Lion Way, where dimensions shrink and expand and the third eye melts into a sincere hug with our chakras. The band, formed at the beginnings of 2011 by Sais (vocals, synthesizer and programming), Jose Guerrero (Bass guitar) and Gonzo In Vegas (drums) come from the legacy of German experimental music, the kind that at some point stopped looking towards the USA and Europe and started to look towards outerspace, the kind that takes music forward with nerve and sweat. Riding on a Supernova of Kraut Rock that alternatively condenses and frees energy, this fantastic first album for BCore (recorded in June 2012 by Pablo Peiró - bass guitar of Betunizer- at the Sountess Studio) has six trips full of psychedelic and hypnotic rhythms that makes the listener advance non-stop. More, more and more. Jupiter Lion don't use dirty tricks or postal epic, they do slow burning, suggestive kinematics, the kind that Stereolab or Tortoise fans enjoy when they ride the back of the Gran Turbina of Motorik. Jose (also in Betunizer, La Orquestra Ganador and other projects) and Gonzo turn their rhythms, made of constant drive, into a magic carpet from which Sais serves himself and takes us on a interplanetary trip without leaving our homes, exploring spaces inside and out. Six songs that activate all our senses and those to come, a true sensorial hurricane that promises an energetic, physical and hypnotic live performance where dancing and eye ball turning inside out are totally assured.

    MASTERS APPRENTICES

    A Toast To Panama Red

    [engl] The Master's Apprentices are bona-fide Australian rock legends. As Stan Rofe said, the Master's Apprentices were Australia's Rolling Stones. They left an indelible mark on Australian music, and along with the Easybeats and the Twilights, they were one of the"could-have-been" bands, who tried valiantly to break into the British and international charts. Like both those bands they were ultimately unsuccessful in their attempts, but one of the later members of the band, Glenn Wheatley, learned valuable lessons from their mistakes and has played a major role in the music industry and the media over the last 30 years.

    McCHURCH SOUNDROOM

    Delusion

    [engl] The cover promises sheer darkness and madness. A skull in a bird's nest on the back and a skull covered with candle wax on the front. The rather pastoral folky beginning seems to prove my expectations wrong but the heavy progressive organ driven rock of this German outfit comes close to what the artwork suggests. The first song knows to convince all naggers. Twisted passages with an atmosphere of sheer insanity and heavy rocking outbursts of the classic kind shake your soul and drag you into a world so different to ours. Some classic blues rock parts get thrown in for the good measure as well but the attention lies on progressive and heavy aspects. The second tune proves that their bassist is a real maniac as he really smokes in some of the more loose sections when he and the drummer create flashing rhythms upon which the lead guitarist can take off to other spheres. Being crazy must be of importance here but MCCHURCH SOUNDROOM take care to be dynamic as well to keep the listener's attention upright when it comes to the lengthy instrumental jam parts with duels and dialogues of guitar and bass or even a wicked drum solo. If you think that progressive metal was invented somewhere in the USA by the early to mid 80s you will find out how far from the truth that is. Well, all in all this is definitely one prototypical 70s heavy progressive outfits and it has the spirit of most UK bands of the years 1969 to 1971 including vocals with a flawless English pronunciation. If you listen beyond the melodies be prepared to find some weird rhythm patterns and if you go back to the surface you may trip away on solemn organ parts or let your mind end up in the darkest and dirtiest backstreet pub when you get struck by quite powerfully rocking jazz passages. Music can be more of a journey than just a superficial experience and this is given with MCCHURCH SOUNDROOM and their “Delusion” album which takes you on a trip into the remote areas of urban life. All of it in a quite heavy fashion. If you love bands like GRAVY TRAIN or early JETHRO TULL, you may enjoy this to the maximum.

    MOTÖRHEAD

    s/t

    [engl] The 40th anniversary reissue of Motörhead’s seminal first album. Pressed on white vinyl with an embossed silver Motörhead logo on the cover, just like the original release, plus a fully illustrated inner bag. England’s fervent rejoinder to the MC5 and the Stooges, Motörhead’s potent brand of full-on, amphetamine- and hard liquor-fuelled rock’n’roll was openly embraced by the leading lights of the mid-1970s punk explosion in the UK. They were one of the few bands with a past to be accorded any respect at all by the Damned or the Sex Pistols, and would subsequently inspire bands such as Napalm Death, Discharge, Naked City and Metallica. Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister formed Motörhead in 1975. Rock’n’roll coursed through every fibre of his being. He was raised on 1950s rock’n’roll (Little Richard was a big favourite), played in cult 60s band the Rockin’ Vickers (with the boards manned by Who/Kinks producer Shel Talmy), worked as a roadie for Jimi Hendrix and was a member of Sam Gopal’s Dream shortly before playing bass with psychedelic space rock merchants Hawkwind. It was Lemmy who sang lead vocals on Hawkwind’s ‘Silver Machine’, a Top 3 hit in the UK in 1972. A drug bust at the Canadian border in 1975 caused the cancellation of a number of Hawkwind gigs and resulted in Lemmy’s dismissal from the band. But you can’t keep a good man down. Back in London, he formed Bastard with Pink Fairies guitarist Larry Wallis and drummer Lucas Fox. After a friend told him that Bastard wouldn’t secure many appearances on Top Of The Pops, Lemmy changed the band name to Motörhead. The name was the title of his final composition for Hawkwind – a no-holds-barred account of one wild night at the Continental Hyatt Hotel on Sunset Boulevard, which was originally released on the B-Side of their ‘Kings Of Speed’ single. After Larry Wallis left the band and Lucas Fox was fired, Lemmy and new recruits, guitarist “Fast” Eddie Clarke and drummer Phil “Philthy Animal”Taylor, recorded the definitive version of the song with producer Speedy Keen. Other Motörhead anthems, including ‘White Line Fever’, ‘Keep Us On The Road’ and a blistering reading of Johnny Burnette & the Rock ‘n’ Roll Trio’s 1956 version of Tiny Bradshaw‘s ‘Train Kept A-Rollin’’, were recorded in a two-day session at Escape Studios. The album would ensure the band would have a career until Lemmy’s death in 2015. The maximum rock’n’roll of “Mötorhead” still takes no prisoners, 40 years on.

    PATERNOSTER

    Paternoster

    [engl] Not each krautish album comes from a German band. Remember BRAINTICKET who in fact were Swiss with a Belgian mastermind? PATER NOSTER on the other hand who play an organ driven solemn progressive rock with a heavy edge come from Austria and really enlighten the heart of all fans of dark and often morbid rock music. It might be a good idea to overhear the pronunciation and the whole lyrics and take the vocals as another instrument adding some color to the whole picture. The voices are indeed quite charismatic and memorable. So are the compositions. The late 1960s psychedelic scene has surely made an impact on this band and the fuzzy lead guitar, creeping rhythms and wicked keyboards often create a climate of sheer dementia with the mournful voice of the singer on top. The record sounds as if the band was jamming in a giant church hall and therefore has a really gloomy mood. There are quite a few freak outs to be experienced along the way and in most cases they turn into some epic space trips that recall the greatest early TANGERINE DREAM and PINK FLOYD processions just with a funeral atmosphere. I may have never heard such a mournful album before which even sounds tragic when the lyrics center on the average working day of an average man. Well, this is some very special record indeed and will strike you deep inside. When you have gotten past the unique vocals the sheer beauty of the lead guitars and keyboard sounds will swallow you alive. Could progressive rock get more demented than VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR? Oh yes, this is the vivid proof. Made by freaks for freaks.

    PROGRESIV TM

    Dreptul De A Visa

    [engl] The 70s were the decade of progressive rock music of all calibers. And it seems not one country of this world was spared when the new kind of sound spilled over like a giant wave of inspiration. Even the European Eastern Block countries where rock music was regarded as subversive by the authorities had their share of rock bands with a hippie, heavy or freaked out direction. We recall OMEGA from Hungary, SBB from Poland or MODRY EFEKT from the Czech Republic and of course PHOENIX from Romania. The latter were the biggest rock music export of their home country but there were others with them building a solid spine for the still young and expanding rock scene. One of these nowadays rather unknown forces was PROGRESIV TM, a band not to categorize too easily. They loved big melodies with a yearning approach for the vocals, mixed up blues, folk, jazz and playfully twisted rock patterns. The guitar had a scratchy and fuzzy distortion that came close to what Tony Iommi ripped off his fretboard on the very early SABBATH albums even when the composition itself rather felt like a relaxed and jazzy ballad. What you get here on this debut album released in 1976 is a really captivating, well produced and even better played piece of rock music combining influences from everything that was cool at the time the band was formed, around 1972. Folky and catchy heavy rock like GOLDEN EARRING or JETHRO TULL, dreamy Eastern rock like OMEGA and PHOENIX, utterly grinding guitar power like early BLACK SABBATH and some wicked progressive freakouts along with jazzy breaks. If you are looking for a hot blooded and steaming, yet relaxed unique rock album from the 70s and can get along well with a band singing in its native tongue rather than English, grab this masterpiece.

    PROMISE

    Promise

    [engl] If you're continuously searching the margins for lost artifacts of the pop pantheon, you can find your daily dose in late period exponents of pure, lean, Beatlesque early '70s power pop, Promise. Originally issued in 1980 on the Boulder, Colorado, area band's own Cumulus label, their eponymous debut is filled with melodic, beatific blasts of pure pop, replete with ringing, jangly guitars, and rollicking crunch. Co- led by singer songwriter's/guitarists Curt Mangan and Danny Mey- with aid provided by the just right rhythms of bassist Randy Jones and drummer Gary York- the group created an album with precious little allying it to the punk- inspired power pop or prescient ''New Wave'' of the time, instead choosing to hone in on a classicist pop sound highly indebted to those famous moptops from Liverpool. Abetted by the fact some of the group's members had been playing together since their teenage combo's of the mid- '60s the album carries an ''out of time'' flair across surging rockers and mournful balladry.

    QUINTAL DE CLOROFILA

    O Misterio

    [engl] The album here has originally been issued in 1983 and contains a wild and captivating crossover between Celtic and South American folk from the Andes plus many elements of traditional music from Southern Europe and some more contemporary singer / songwriter aspects with a mystical atmosphere. The playing skills of all participating musicians are enormously high and the distinctive vocals by multiple voices capture your attention in just a second when you take a closer listen to the twelve songs on this album. One or another step into pop music with a slight psychedelic edge that manifests in the use of a saxophone here or synthesizer there carries the compositions into the present time and makes certain that this is not just a fairy tale from ancient days but definitely vivid music to blow your mind with. From harmonium to pan flutes you will find all kinds of instruments backing the beautiful acoustic guitars and haunting voices. QUINTAL DE CLOROFILA remind me of a South American version of THE INCREDIBLE STRING BAND and several gypsy and folk acts from the South or South East of Europe. The whole album has a rather epic feel and drags you deeply into a colorful world of sound. Truly majestic and unearthly enchanting.

    RAMESH

    Ramesh

    [engl] In 1970s Tehran, the classically- trained Ramesh played the serious, quiet marquess against Googooshs langorous pop princess. Both singers made the papers every time they changed their haircuts & appeared on tv frequently. However, while Googoosh now runs a cosmetics company in Los Angeles, they say Ramesh was killed in the political turmoil of the late 70s because she was a lesbian. Nobody knows for sure. What we do know is that she was a funky queen whose rich voice sits like a fat mink coat, twirling its melancholy way around long- necked lutes, backed by flurries of frame & goblet drums. And the sleazy, Western brass, strings & synths are here too, slathered across rare singles for your shameless dancing pleasure. Welcome to the unpredictable world of pre- revolutionary Iranian pop music.

    SPOT (france)

    Spot

    [engl] An early seventies Swiss band that showcases heavy blues-rock in fusion with the psychedelic influences of other swiss bands like Krokodil or Country Lane. With excellent guitar playing. The Spot LP is one of the rarest from the European underground scene for sure; it was pressed across the border in France under contract like the Splendid label stuff was (Pacific Sound, Aftershave, etc.), which makes it highly unlikely that it ever made it past an initial order of a few hundred copies for their local fan base. If you like heavy rock with searing distorted wah-wah guitar, this has it. If you like the juxtaposition provided by the short acoustic numbers on the Tractor LP, Spot does that as well.
