Just imagine what this sounded like in 1968. This is the first single from proto synth duo and inventors of electronic psych music Silver Apples. This would have blown minds, maaan. Or left everyone pretty confused - one or the other. Anyway here it is re-issued in it's original sleeve which features at least one turtleneck jumper.
To this day, Damo Suzuki continues to tour the world, playing improvised sets with one-off ensembles of local musicians as he goes. On this Berlin date in 2011, his Sound Carriers include Ilpo Väisänen of Pan Sonic and Dirk Dresselhaus of Schneider™, among other remarkable types. Live At Marie-Antoinette is a double LP, released by Play Loud!
All That May Do My Rhyme is the 1995 album of 13th Floor Elevators originator Roky Erickson. It’s a pleasingly laid-back set, leaning more towards folky rootsy rock music than the fried-out psychedelia of much of his career, though that is also present in small tasty doses. The album has been reissued on CD and vinyl LP by the Play Loud label.
Guru Guru are a slightly obscurer but no less worthy band of Krautrock superheroes, originally making music in the late 60s wih a pretty conventional rock band set up: a guitarist and his doting rhythm section. That said, they had a thing for jazz (because, you know, krautrock), hard rockers like Hendrix and long-haired experimental fiends like Frank Zappa. These influences try and crack through 'Hinten', a very jammy collection of tracks that always meander over the ten minute mark. It's back with style thanks to Play Loud Productions. 'Hinten' translates into English as behind -- but Guru Guru were definitely ahead of time. Or maybe out of it.
