3 stars Completely lost in time before to be re-released on LongHair, this proto-bluesy krautrockin' band is a real obscurity and curiosity. Pacific Sound published one inspired and soulful album Forget Your Dream in 1971. They are playing the blues with an intuitive feeling and with a sense of instrumental improvisation. Their sound admits the presence of fuzzed out guitars and pleasantly psych / mellow Hammond organ passages. This album is not a revolution but it reveals super efficient and dynamic jams with an obvious late 60's musical aesthetic. After the conventional Forget your dream, the second piece called erotic blues offers a very sensual, intense improvised musical game including a nice groove, a discreet acid atmosphere and explosive Hammond organs. Drive my car is a solid rock 'n' roll piece. Thick Fog is an astonishing psych-bluesy-rebellious piece with aggressive vocals, Hammond organ freakouts and heavy- fuzzy-distorto guitar leads. Ceremony for a dead is an evil, haunting, emotionally charged bluesy-rock song with plaintive / aggressive vocals, mega doom fuzzy guitars, and massive organs. Impressive stuff. Gates of Hell is a moody-dark bluesy-rockin' piece with plaintive guitar leads, sumptuous Hammond organs. Esoteric album with a few melodic grooves, lugubrious atmospheres and constant inspiration. Recommended if you like the damaged / bluesy / improv / psych works of Kapputer Hamster, Prof wolfff (...)

2 stars It's not that unusual to hear a Swiss band playing Krautrock, but this is album is the poorest example of that that i've heard. It does nothing for me unfortunately. Basically an organ led Blues album with poorly sung English vocals. I should have known by the album cover that this was an album to avoid. Haha. In the liner notes they say: "The album should be played at "high" level !". We get it.

"Forget Your Dream" sounds way to much like parts of THE SPENCER DAVIS GROUP's "I'm A Man". "Erotic Blues" has some bad lyrics but the music isn't bad with drums and organ leading the way. Vocals don't arrive until after 3 1/2 minutes. "Drive My Car" is led by organ, drums and vocals. Guitar after a minute.

"Thick Fog" opens with some good guitar before vocals arrive. "Gyli Gyli" is basically laughter set to music. It doesn't work. "Ceremony For A Dead" is more of the same really with organ, guitar and drums. Vocals after a minute and some prominant bass. "If Your Soul Is Uncultivated" is fairly catchy with guitar, drums and vocals. "Gates Of Hell" features some bluesy organ and vocals. Guitar 2 1/2 minutes in.

If your a Krautrock fan I would avoid this one.

2 stars Definitly, something very strange: a swiss band, playing a kind o psychedelic blues rock and labeled as krautrock. Thatīs the only original point about it. The musicians are good, ok. I liked the Hammond organ runs, but the vocalist is awful and the songwriting is mediocre at best. Nothing Krautrock about this one as far as Iīm concerned. Not much more to say about this anomaly. Forget Your Dream is their only album and itīs easy to understand why there was no follow up. If you-re interested in blues based Hammond organ centered rock, maybe you should check this out. But I should also warn you that there is nothing really original or interesting here and the singerīs histrionics really get my nerves.

Rating: something between 1,5 and 2 stars. Tis one is for collectors and fans only.
