2 stars These are very obscure, archaic live sessions from this 70's psych rock collective. the sound recording is really poor, garage and amateurish (sometimes provoking an absolutely painful listening) but we have to try making abstraction of this and infiltrate the intimate compositions and improvisations delivered. The opening tune represents the highlight of the album with an epic stoned soundscape, starting as a CAN song with obsessive rhythms, then transformed into a dense, melancholic acid 'trip" with fuzzy guitar solos and attractive melodies. It's closed to weird krautrock jams without experimentations. After this deep spaced out free form composition the musical quality declines with absurd songs as "Dibio" (a such "ridiculous" humorous short composition for acoustic guitars and naive hyppie like vocals) or the grotesque folk- ish "munfiol". "Var vila" is not a more serious affair, including heavy guitar riffs with ultra sick voices but the melodies really rock and try with a certain success to catch the essence of freaked out psych rock classics. An explosion of sounds for the best and the worst.
