Got three sweet reissues and about an hour to review them in. First two were Group 1850 and Vangelis (both excellent) and this is some bubbly kraut-jazz weirdness from Os Mundi (also excellent) which originally came out on the iconic Brain label in 1972. On it Os Mundi fuse the insistent repetitive rhythms and occasional somewhat tribalistic vocals with a gleeful splash of prog rock and a liberal helping of jazz, like a mind-melting melange of Can and early Hawkwind along with some sweeping Scandinavian jazz flavours...
If these guys were around today I reckon they’d be on Rune Grammofon, or maybe think of skronk legends Blurt but more restrained and repetitive. Playful, elastic-fingered musicianship, hypnotic repetition and gleefully anarchic jazz shapes make for a hippie-kraut free-for-all of heavy grooves and adventurous melodies which the world just wasn’t ready for in the early ‘70s. There’s even a mind-expanding Anchorman-style jazz flute solo! Totally worth a listen! There’s only 500 of these so I wouldn’t hang about either.
