4 stars Here goes my second review at Progarchives : immediately noticeable are the song titles listed here, I have the Demi Monde vinyl of this release and it features 5 tracks ; Side 1 - Who Who , The Tribe and Tik-Tok Song , and side 2 - Haupmotor and Hymn for the Hardcore. While this line-up of Guy Evans, Dave Anderson and John Weinzierl may not have what it takes to produce the dense sounds of Lemmings or Wolf City, what we have here is a rocking, jamming band who just let it rip !! Most of the album contains long, instrumental jams which, even if a little repetitive, have a strong psychedelic vibe to them (particularly the last track, with loads of sitar) and for those familiar with the musicians involved, their execution on their respective instruments is immediately noticeable. Guy has got the most inventive and imaginative percussive skills in the prog world (VDGG/Hammill, Mother Gong, Long Hello etc) and Dave A's bass is solid and clear (always liked him in early Duul and his one time stint with Hawkwind). So, this is a great album, and something of a treat (this is a 1989 release) and I wouldn't hesitate recommending this to fans of the bands mentioned above, or for the curious wanting an album of 70's spirit from a time when the art had long become a business. 4 stars.
