3 stars I don't think this band are very well known even among prog fans which is a shame as this their one and only album is a fine offering. To be honest I don't know a great deal about them so was suprised to discover only recently that Simeon Sasparella is non other than Steve Hillage. I got the reissue on akarma in 2002. It is definately a product of its time with heavy use of organ throughout the six tracks. Strong bass lines and drumming carry the music on with mad guitar riffs and screeching feedback punctuating the clever use of keyboards. These could have outshone the Doors if only they had kept going, but this sole album has left us wondering what if.

Good stuff but not great
