Brighton group ZOFFF engaged in a full kosmische-psychedelic live ritual at Kozfest MMXVI, the results of which have been captured here on wax by (appropriately enough) the Drone Rock Records. Glorious space-rock jamming with sweet synth and trumpet action in the mix, all riding off the extra energy of the crowd. Edition of 300 LPs.

Zofff are full of curiosities and very into the idea of writing down their questions on a slip of paper and then putting them into a box, except the box is a black hole, of course. Can I write for Black Mirror yet. Having made some blank noise in the name of all that is good and kosmische for Deep Distance, the Zofffers now give their time to Drone Rock Records, offering a live record that seems to describe the label’s name with yawning chasms of space-rocked ambience.
It’s hard to describe a band grooving themselves into a dedicated trance, but I can certainly explain-applaud their kinetic energy for you -- the rhythms on this record are tight and loose at one, the sludgy bassline and spectacular drumming feeling almost improvised in their brief moments of synergised movement. Other inflections on the record feel like they’re trying to create terrain around the magnanimity of repetition, with little sounds intervening in what is otherwise a peaceful noise-making. On the first side, they cut out of their trance in favour of a second one, with delayed guitar whirrs taking the centre for an ominous, almost jazzy interpretation of krautrock.
These two sides show off a band who can double down on the sleeper kosmische and also whirr like a fire alarm at an experimental show. Did you know bands are allowed to do more than one thing? I truly didn’t.
