This record is by the one and only AKA , who according to the Indonesia branch of Rolling Stone are "Indonesia's Legendary Rock Band." They peddle a sound that is part psych, part Prog, all Rock. They have quite a big following in obscure rock circles and its not hard to see why they are held in such high stock. They have a great typical 70s rock sound. You know dry sounding drums, vox with a touch of reverb, lurching bass and song titles like "Crazy Joe" and my favourite "Sky Rider". They sound like all the great rock bands of the 70's but with an added oriental spice that most bands could do with nowadays. The album begins in fearsome fashion with some blazing guitar solos coming out of some experimental noise. The drums and vocals cut across time and space, and the bass nails the grooves right down to the floor. The rest of the record is full to the brim with virtuoso solos, druggy imagery and extended jams that make this one heck of a lost classic.Its also amazing to hear a band that aren't whiny white indie fucks and to hear a band that can really kick out the cocking jams. These retro rockers have made a wonderful album that is a loving ode to the church of Rock. Progressive /psychedelic rock never sounded so good... Comes with a bamboo hat and some black pyjamas...OHHH!
