3 stars This band has never released a vinyl or compact disc so far what is very careless compared to the quality of their songs they recorded. Only music cassettes are existing. Besides the fact this are rarities with a low number of copies and quite unavailable - who really uses a cassette player yet? So first of all I strongly recommend to take action - it's worth it!

The songs of this production are obviously provided with HAWKWIND and OZRIC TENTACLES leanings. Remarkable are the delay and wah-wah drenched guitar, a hypnotic tribal drumming and what is typical for many psych bands - vocals are very rare, only given with some mantras.

Ayermandominar is starting somewhat clumsy but soon hurries up reminding me of MR. QUIMBY'S BEARD with wah-wah guitar work. Some effects simulating the crying of the whales are interspersed at the end and the song is made in an interesting trancy mood even if it contains some tempo changes. Other standout tracks are the gripping Circles underlaid by Mark Dixon's didgeridoo and the epic Conditioning with high-speed jamming deluxe.

Hopefully the band decides to continue and to reissue their songs on compact disk or vinyl soon for having the chance to purchase this interesting recordings which are first of all recommended to fans who are swirling around the Hawkwind and Tentacles circles - 3.5 stars really.

Rivertree | 3/5 |
