Review by DamoXt7942
FORUM & SITE ADMIN GROUP Avant/Cross/Neo/Post Teams
5 stars An authentic Krautrock along with weird keyboard / organ / Moog works, mysterious guitar discordance, spacey whacked-out synthesizer trippin', and no good voices (lol). Actually SCARECREW were formed as another super Krautrock project by Steve "Aquarian" SCHROYDER (ex-Tangerine Dream) in collaboration with some Krautrockers (Ash Ra Tempel, Agitation Free, etc.), and have released only one album "Magical Mind" veiled in a shocking yellow bizarre sleeve.

From the beginning of this creation (just the first tape effects shot "Eingang"), their German Psychedelic Engine is taken to full power. In every short track (except 10 minute longest one "Stardust") is overflown with guitar dread, percussive dizziness, and Moog madness. In the same vein of Ash Ra Tempel or freakout freeform surrealistic music creators (e.g. Ya Ho Wha 13), massive sound shower breaks our brain out irreversibly. An only-fourty-minute album creation completely makes a hallucinogenic whisper to us.

Evident ritualized songs consist of downtempo trippy ethnicity created by percussion, deformed but energetic guitar explosion or shabby shaggy shouts touched in the head. Intensively they have squeezed some mindtoxic agents into our mind. Electronic drone / percussive line filled with strange tension and modest synthesizer technique here and there should be impressive. Infernal warped voices sound like such an eerie magic spell based upon unpolished percussion and synth / key irregularity. Exactly almost all of German psychedelic essence should be included in this obscurity in a sense.

"The Mammoth" or the longest one "Stardust" reminds me of a leaning toward a French acrobatic Krautrock gem Mahogany Brain, who launches incantation phrases along with unsteady guitar vertigo. It's a mystery such an unnatural psychedelic hideaway can be slip easily into our inner brain. An awesome unknown masterpiece, let me say.
