Review by Sean Trane
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk
2 stars 2.5 stars really, almost three!!!

A rather different album than their previous two, Blitz is a much rockier effort and was not released on the legendary Metronome section of the Brain label and it is again graced with a doubtful taste cartoon artwork by Gil Funccius. By this time, the group had been annexed by the Drogies brothers (have you checked to see I was not joking? ;-), and it sure sounds like it.

Indeed this is almost hard rock with the lead guitar and drums splattered all over it, and the whole thing is not far from a disco beat, having lost all of its previous subtleties. Even if there are still some spacey effects, they sound quite kitsch on this simple instrumental funk rock. As four out of five tracks of the opening side fit this description, only the slower It Was Love differs, but that does not make this slow ballad any more interesting. A real downer after their previous two albums.

After an equally forgetful Sûdwind, the flipside does raise this album's level to a more acceptable overall level with the charming Rainbow (filled with keyboards) and the lengthy upbeat Jungle Of Your Mind (but "marred" with a very lengthy Hawkwind-esque drum/percussion duo. in 76) and the excellent Crickets Don't Cry with finally some decent interplay, inspired tempo changes and brilliant execution.

Quite different than its two predecessor, Blitz is really not that worth the proghead's investigations (let alone the investment), but aside from three pleasant tracks, you'll not find much to quench your thirst.

3 stars Wow, what a change in direction! Thirsty Moon's first two studio albums are top notch hard rocking kraut affairs. This one is not. It's difficult to categorize, very uneven, and, for me, unprecedented. Difficult to categorize in that the musical styles jump all over the map. It's uneven i ... (read more)

2 stars Blitz is a totally instrumental production, realized by two left over members of the original line-up after the band split in 1974. Norbert Drogies- drums, bass Jürgen Drogies - guitar,keyboards All instruments on the recordings where played by the two alone and that is what you hear. The ... (read more)

4 stars Another great effort by this little known and under rated KRAUTROCK PROG BAND! This release finds the THIRSTY MOON boys hard at work again on another prog/space/fusion masterpiece. Almost the whole album is instrumental, featuring cuts of high energy fluid guitar work.A bit more rock than jaz ... (read more)
