Review by Rivertree
4 stars Hard-wired but not hot-wired ...

ZONE SIX is known in Germany for playing improvised rock music within nearly ten years now. 'Live Wired 2004' is exemplary for their jamming style. The Double LP version contains 87 minutes with impulsive drums and a lot of excellent space guitar work, sometimes bloody rocking, sometimes in a trippy trance mood. Musically the musicians get along with each other perfectly and have contributed a fine live album which is not boring in any case. As you cannot watch their special lightshow at least use your headphones please and close your eyes. At the (space)bass we have Dave Schmidt, also known for several other project contributions and solo efforts as Sula Bassana.

Synthy soundcapes are opening the emotional Hopscotch which gets tempo after some time until it culminates into a furious finale. Spheroidise could also be an excerpt of a MAN gig but is a lot more dedicated to the delay effects of Julius-K's excellent space guitar work. The trippy Sod waterways remembers me at the band TRIBE AFTER TRIBE from south africa, played with Walt Jahn's djembe accompaniment but not so heavy and more relaxed - wonderful! Beach comber starts as a Pink Floyd reminiscence, later with heavy guitar delay effects once more. A stunning song which makes you high without any other help. Susurrus is delivered in two versions whereas I'm familiar with the shorter CD one. This song is also interesting for electronic fans - ambient with spacy synths and djembe percussion - fly, fly - up into the sky.

This live album is nearly perfect - recommended to fans of trippy space rock sounds which also like Hawkwind or the 70s psychedelic/space phase of Man.
