4 stars The band name seemingly evolved from a rather pragmatical solution. Nicky Garratt, co-founder of the British punk band UK Subs, once met Uve Müllrich, bass player of Embryo. This just happened at Hedersleben, a small village situated in Eastern Germany (former GDR). After celebrating some jams together and obviously being inspired Nicky decided to form a new band, where he could convince his ex-colleague and drummer Jason Willer to take part in the project as another constant. And finally keyboardist Kephera Moon also turns out to be one of a party with regularity.

While also including a few other like-minded musicians they have toured the US up and down, had collaborations with Nik Turner and made an important contribution to the recordings for the new Brainticket release. Two band albums were recorded so far, this one is the latter from 2014 which clearly shows them underway on kraut respectively space rock paths. The extended title track comes inspired by diverse bands - there is a ADII/Yeti adapted flow to state, or just taking the Doors alike psychedelic organ into account.

A wonderful relaxed listening experience featuring soaring guitars and synths as well as hypnotic bass lines contributed by Bryce Shelton. Kati Knox's ethereal voice appears here and there and finally it all turns into a nice, more classically flavoured piano sequence. The following four songs are building a range of shorter excerpts offering a more common song structure - though, basically also equipped with the aforementioned attributes further on, this is definitely appealing too. An astonishing affair when considering Nicky's musical origin. Spot on! Highly recommended!
