Guardian Alien / The Cosmic Dead ‘Tunnel Channel Volume One’ LP 2014

1st September 2014 at 9:25 am

Guardian Alien / The Cosmic Dead

While I’ve always been somewhat in tune with the strange brainwaves that The Cosmic Dead live out their myriad existences with, they have nonetheless always been able to surprise me; sometimes with their shifts in direction, sometimes with their subtlety and sometimes, like this,…

E-Musikgruppe Lux Ohr ‘Spiralo’ LP/DD 2014

30th April 2014 at 9:59 am

E-Musikgruppe Lux Ohr

The six letters, one hyphen combo ‘E-musik’ makes me instantly think of Neu! The fifth track on their legendary Neu! 75 album, ‘E-musik’ stood for ‘ernste Musik’ (earnest music), and one can only imagine whether they were taking the piss or being deadly serious…

The mighty Mugstar, who have been frying neurons for quite a while now, have a genuine claim to be the most noteworthy and highest quality psychedelic outfit in Europe today, if not the world. Yes potheads, the big green world. That’s some claim isn’t…

Warp Transmission & Heavy Smoke

Some things are like buses; you wait ages for one, and then two come along at once! Therefore, today we present to you not one, but TWO great new bands of the lysergic persuasion from Finland, approaching psychedelia from rather different angles, both to…

The Cosmic Dead

The first time I ever saw The Cosmic Dead live, they were playing a double set at Mono, a vegan cafe / awesome record store nestled in a remote corner of Glasgow’s Merchant City. As I was walking to the venue, I heard a…
