Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
4 stars Debut album from a very typical group that performed a jazz-rock/fusion with that typcal Krautrock spirit, TM's music can be compared to early Doldinger's Passport or Kraan to a spacey Release Music Orchestra (to remain in Germany). Lead by the Drogies brother (guitar and drums respectively), this septet had everything in their handsto make an entertaining JR/F as they introduced some space/cosmische muzieke in it. Released on the verey collectible Metronome section of the Brain label (this would mean the brown label, not the gfreen) with an arresting artwork by artist Gil Funccius, this debut album is one of the better JR/F from their country.

One the opening side, Morning Sun is absolutely delightful and the 9-min+ Big City is a scorcher, both being the essence of TM. The two shorter tracks are also much worthy of the attention. The flipside is made of the sidelong Yellow Sunshine track, which is easily the album's highlight even if there are inevitable lengths and solos.

A very worthy album, just as their second would also be, I recommend starting out with their You'll Never Come Back as it might be a tiny bit more concise, but both are very worthy of every proghead's shelves.

3 stars Rich and warm first entry from a helluva band though it may take a few tries to get into this generous record, prog-jazz-space orchestra Thirsty Moon definitely came to play. Seemingly a jam album but that appearance fades as we begin to notice the clear vision, musicianship, taste, and subtle German precision. The band is given life by leader Norbert Drogies' hungry performance on drums and brother/co-leader Jurgen's support on guitar. No waiting here, the energy kicks right in for 'Morning Sun', pumping muscle turning into a smooth respite, Michael Kobs' cool electric piano, great layers of brass from Willi Pape and a bit of Krautrock trance. Strange and playful psych tune 'Love Me' is built with care, and 'Rooms Behind Your Mind' explodes with progressive energy, wild squawking from Pape, Hans Werner Ranwig's beautiful organ and Jurgen's black riffs. And 'Big City' lives up to its name, a sprawling nine-minute urban dig that smells of heat, fumes, food, people and life as it bustles forward. Twenty minute dirge 'Yellow Sunshine' is an ambitious opera that unravels gradually, only giving up its treasure to those who listen in full, packed with horn arrangements, killer organ, wailing space odysseys and amazing moments.

Like a shy but deep and brilliant person, Thirsty Moon is something you must invest some time into to benefit from, only later returning with stories of adventures in the night.

3 stars A significant name of the German krautrock scene,THIRSTY MOON were found in Bremen in 1972 and started as a 7-member band.By the same year their epontmous debut was already recorded and released by Brain Records.

It consists of four short tracks and one epic jam,clocking at over 20 minutes.The album follows the typical German mode of krautrock with strong interplays,long jamming and a lot of space for endless improvisated musicianship.Saxes are everywhere played by Willie Pape and ranging from smooth passages to abstract heavy parts.There is also some lovely percussion work throughout the listening,featuring also nice organ and groovy electric pianos.Vocals are English with a rough edge,which fit very much to the band's style,while the epic of the album conatins also a lot of spacey parts,charcterized by the unbelievable saxes,the great percussion work and the smooth flutes.Sometimes it seems that the tracks are out of any logical structure,but repeated listenings will give you the time and chance to appreciate THIRSTY MOON's undenieable talent.Headed mainly to fans of jazz and kraut rock with heavy emphasis on good jams and improvisations!

5 stars Unique kind of Jazz, weird effects, especially on guitar and keyboards. Lots of 'air' instruments added. Powerfull bass lines, nice drums. Thirsty Moon never sticks to the conventional, instead, seems to just play for themselves, wich can lead you to an enormous appreciation, or a '[%*!#] this band' ... (read more)
