Sun biography
Hailing from Hettenleidelhelm near Eisenberg in the Palatinate, SUN were founded under the moniker of PUNISHED SUN in 1969 and shortened their name to SUN in 1974. Apparently influenced by jazz rock especially Zappa, and their credits can be seen in a double compilation album "Proton 1" released in early 1974 via a German independent label Kerston, with Zyma, Andorra, Penicillin and Nexus. In 1980 they have released their debut eponymous album, in an edition of 1000 copies. This album has been reissued with two "Proton 1" tracks, two unreleased materials from some rehearsals, and two unreleased studio recordings, via a German label Garden Of Delights in 2008.

Review by DamoXt7942

3 stars An orthodox jazz rock stuff from Germany. A German jazz rock outfit SUN were founded in 1969 under the moniker of PUNISHED SUN. After shortening their band name into SUN in 1974, they launched two long material for a split album via Kerston label, on that other four bands Zyma, Andorra, Penicillin, and Nexus provided tracks. Finally in 1980 they released their eponymous album as their one and only full-length studio-recorded one on their own ... their musical identity can be thought as 'typical' progressive jazz rock slightly tinged with Zappa's influence, easily heard also around the world in those days. Obviously understood why they are unknown because of their traditionality, and if such a technically fantastic album might be revived unless a German Krautrock label Garden Of Delights reissued it in 2008. Forgive me if I'm not correct but I assume all of them had tried to learn and master jazz music and got pretty inspired by rock pioneers (including progressive rock). Their play and technique are quite superb, and every material featuring a strict rhythm section for hard, complex melody lines is excellent indeed, but I'm afraid their sincereness and seriousness might have attenuated Zappadelic quirkiness. The audience can listen to their creation safe and sound, but innovative vibe cannot be found enough, sadly. It might be fine for you to enjoy orthodox jazz rock school.
Thanks to dAmOxT7942 for the artist addition.
