AMONULLUNOMA - Amplifeeding Fyrewarmtouch (1994)

Underground band from Belfast in the early 90's. The band was primarly a spacejazz jam outfit in the Gong vein but the sole album reflects some classic symphonic prog influences as well, ranging from Yes to early Genesis.

The most spacey and adventurous moments evoke Gong and late 70's Steve Hillage works. The band recorded their sole album in pure analog and released it on tape and vinyl only.

All the musicians are good, only the drummer's play doesn't sound as "vintage" as the others but remains decent anyway.

The guitar has a slight heavy edge but not too much fortunatly while the keyboard's excellent using cosmic sound similar to Gong Tim Blake's works.

The bass player has a nice big and aerial sound reminding of Ye's Fragile period.

All that create a pleasant mixture that is quite impressive for such an underground and obscure band. I had the chance to put the hand on an original pure analog tape (thanks to G Fox Noon) which sounds very good, a very rare and appreciable privilege in a cold digital world!
