4 stars I was already impressed by the most adventurous parts of their studio album "Amplifeeding Fyrewarmtouch", i'm even more impressed by this very short (two pieces, for a total clocking at 13 minutes), but delightful '"Derry tapes" live record. A spacey fusion in the vein of the best Steve Hillage, still with the nice aerial Yes Fragilesque powerful and elastic bass sound, killer vintage synthe, fantastic guitar and even vocoder effects reminding of Steve Hillage's "Green" album. "Herbrush" is simply a spacerock masterpiece. No fault of taste here, a solid four stars, not five only because of the record's shortness. My favourite 90's prog.

Currently unaivalable in record form to my knowledge, but you can have a listen on this page:

Enjoy the sound of the 90s!!

Review by Rivertree
4 stars It hurts like hell - can't believe why they ceased their highly productive collaboration after recording one album in 1994 - and why they remained an insider's tip so long. As for the musical essence AMONULLUNOMA's songs are extremely good - every piece I know deserves to be re-released and can easily compete with the output of bands like Gong and similar. Okay, it looks like they never went on commercial paths, but this sounds way way better than a hobby project which met to jam in a cellar from time to time.

By the look of it the two songs offered here were recorded in 1997, responsible is the same line-up which produced the album 'Amplifeeding Fyrewarmtouch' three years before. So probably this was their one and only temporary rebirth, don't want to abandon all hopes though that some other recordings are existing somewhere. You can expect excellent musicianship, especially the extended HerBrush is a killer track, I dare to say the best piece they've ever recorded - eh, respectively I'm aware of.

Being faithful to their trademark they play a special mix of space and jazz rock. This extended one shows an excellent flow, opening spacey/ambient - as for the visual component I would imagine a flower coming into bloom in quick motion. The song glides into an intriguing groove then with a stronger jazzy orientation where they permanently increase playfulness and tension - wow, just can't get enough! Highly recommended - don't miss that - it's that easy - just enter the official website and grab it.
