A Progressive Rock Sub-genre

Psychedelic/Space Rock definition

Psychedelic Progressive Rock

Progressive rock music has its roots in the mid 1960's psychedelic cultural phenomena. During that time the British Invasion and folk-rock bands began to expand the sonic possibilities of their music. These groups slowly started to abandon the concise verse-chorus-verse patterns of rock & roll, and moved towards fluid, free-form oriented song structures. Just as important was the incorporation of elements from Indian and Eastern music. Along them the principles of free-form jazz were included to the psychedelic sound, emphasising spontaneous emotions over calculated and estimated compositional constructions. Experimenting with new studio technology, electronically altering instruments and voices, was a part of this altered approach as well. Acid rock groups like THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE and CREAM stand as descriptive and popular examples of the path from psychedelic sunshine pop towards a more aggressive and distinct rock expression, in particular showcased in their improvised live performances.

The boundary dividing the "Experimental" and "Progressive" classification is a thin and at times contested one for this era. The pioneering psychedelic progressive rock bands to be found at www.progarchives.com will in most cases be found in the Proto-Prog section of the site. Amongst these pioneering outfits are acts like THE BEATLES, JEFFERSON AIRPLANE AND VANILLA FUDGE. Artists such as PINK FLOYD will not be found there though, as their career extended well beyond these first, formative years.

Psychedelic progressive rock music may contain the elements previously described in varying combinations, but the artistic perspective of progressive rock is another factor. Some psychedelic rock bands stuck to the mid 1960's beat rock style in purist form, not partaking in the experimental development of the impressionistic possibilities of psychedelic rock music others spearheaded. The evolution of the psychedelic depth within a progressive context could be seen for instance in the 1960's recordings of ARCADIUM and BABY GRANDMOTHERS. One good example of early 70's Continental European progressive psychedelic rock is the album by AHORA MAZDA, and from Britain JADE WARRIOR's early efforts fuse psychedelic rock and ethnic music. Current artists exploring the vintage 60's/70's style and sound are acts like THE SPACIOUS MINDS and ACID MOTHER'S TEMPLE.

The entire Western pop culture scene was influenced by the psychedelic culture to some extent, including other prog genres such as Prog Folk. In Germany, artists influenced by the British psychedelic movement formed their own genre called KRAUTROCK. The pioneering early 70's bands in this genre represent the progressive acid rock sound of Germany, experimenting with long instrumental improvisations, emphasizing the use of psychedelic effects and weird electronic sounds. Some examples are artists like AMON DÜÜL, ASH RA TEMPEL, CAN, GÄA, NECRONOMICON and YATHA SIDHRA. The PROGRESSIVE ELECTRONIC style emerged from Krautrock. Some of the most influential artists of this genre, such as TANGERINE DREAM and KLAUS SCHULZE, explored a distinct psychedelic musical style at first, which was influential for the development of the "space rock" sound:


Progressive Space Rock

The late 1960's psychedelic rock scene also spawned the birth of the space rock genre. The pioneering acts of this genre assimilated krautrock elements like repetitive hypnotic beats and electronic/ambient soundscapes as they moved away from the common musical and compositional approach. The synthesizer with its bubbling tones and spacey patterns, provoking a gliding flow, is a typical instrument of this genre. Guitars are by preference played with glissando technique and delay/echo effects are heavily used, and elements originating from reggae/dub are fairly common. Several bands combine their live performances with trippy lightshows using random fractals. Albums in this genre will often include at least one long meandering jam based on a main theme, where loops and wavelike fluctuations provides slight variations to this structural foundation.

Stories, images, song titles and album names referring to cosmic themes are fairly common features of the genre. HAWKWIND's live album "Space Ritual" is said to be the ultimate space rock album due to the collaboration with sci-fi author Michael Moorcock. His lyrics are performed by a narrator and underlaid with synth elements. PINK FLOYD can be regarded as pioneers of spacey music during the band's early phase, as exemplified by certain tracks from "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn" or the stirring live performance of "Careful With That Axe Eugene" from "Ummagumma". GROBSCHNITT provides another fine example of classic space rock with their epic effort "Solar Music". Other bands explored the space rock sound for a limited time period only. GONG released groundbreaking albums in the genre at the start of their career, while British hard rock band UFO released the extraordinary album "Flying - One Hour Space Rock" as their sole contribution to the genre in 1971.

A space rock scene can be found in most countries sporting artists producing music with a western-oriented or influenced sound. Swedish bands are known for a brisk exchange of musicians among each other. The "Strange Daze" festivals from 1997-2000 showcased the American space rock scene. Japan is an inexhaustible reservoir of artists exploring both psychedelic progressivce rock and progressive space rock. Representative examples of the style are bands such as ORESUND SPACE COLLECTIVE with their focus on long grooving improvisations, QUARKSPACE and OZRIC TENTACLES with their stronger emphasis on electronic elements and VESPERO and HIDRIA SPACEFOLK with their inclusion of ethnic-originating musical components. Other groups like ESCAPADE and THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS represent an avantgarde approach to the genre, whereas SUBARACHNOID SPACE and KINSKI are examples of artists that provide transitions to the post rock genre.


The boundaries of Psychedelic Progressive Rock connected with Stoner Rock and Acid Folk

The 1960's and 70's were a time of liberation, a time of rebellion against rigid rules and strict moral boundaries. In those "freedom of expression" days, an artist would typically herald their liberal attitudes as a mind-expanding trip on stage together with the audience in two ways. One was to realize audio/visually the visual and auditory hallucination as it was, and another was to play their repertoire spiritually and improvisationally under the trip. As for the latter approach, they devoted themselves solely to slow-to-mid tempo playing with low-tuned guitars in a heavy and expansive manner for playing steadily under this twilight condition. In the same time period, this approach to the musical trip was also taken on by some artists especially in the hard rock and heavy metal scene. This new style, drenched in heavy and downer psychedelia, was called "Stoner Rock". The name originates from the expression "stoned", referring to people in altered states of mind while under the influence of psychedelic substances. The Stoner Rock genre was universalized "as a strict musical style only" by the Industrial Grunge Rock genre that gained worldwide popularity in the early 1990s. The common denominator of all the artists mentioned is the representation of their personal cultural and political backgrounds, whilst playing slow-paced depressive songs with heavy guitars and echoic rumbling drums as the dominating features. Most of current outfits claiming to be the so-called Psychedelic Heavy Progressive Rock ones should be much influenced by the traditional Stoner or Grunge Rock as well as the early Psychedelic Progressive Rock. They can be considered as a borderline case between Psychedelic Progressive, Heavy Progressive, and Progressive Metal.

"Acid Folk" can be mentioned as another musical style with hallucinogenic approach. Psych Folk or Psychedelic Folk are other names for this genre, and is vaguely defined as a rock subgenre due to the mixture of folk rock and psychedelic rock. This is a style lacking in strict definitions, and it is contested whether or not the term was actually used at what is deemed the dawn of the genre. It's an undeniable fact that the Acid Folk scene gained some popularity by the efforts of artists in "The Folk Revivalism", but it's important to remember that there were two distinctly different approaches taken by those who helped shape the genre in the mid 1960's. Some folk singers approached a psychedelic rock structure as was popular at that time, while some psychedelic rock outfits tried to absorb and incorporate techniques and elements from folk rock. Both have great importance in the development of Acid Folk, and this may be the reason that strict definitions of the genre cannot be given. In view of the history, it's no exaggeration to claim that TYRANNOSAURUS REX, SYD BARRETT or THE INCREDIBLE STRING BAND in UK rock scene seasoned the "traditional" Acid Folk with a more progressive spice. They, as eccentric or heretical rock outfits, accepted and incorporated Middle-Eastern and Oriental elements or instruments, and the result was the foundation for the current progressive Acid Folk movement. And in the Eastern parts of the world, different acid streams was provided by artists such as TAJ MAHAL TRAVELLERS or MAGICAL POWER MAKO who exerted a great influence on younger progressive bands. Their amazing achievements resides in the twilight zone between the Prog Folk and Psychedelic Prog subgenres.


A path that never ends

In addition of the styles described, psychedelic elements can be found in many other genres of progressive rock. The psychedelic cultural explosion had an immense influence on the western popular culture, and traces of it can still be heard also outside of progressive rock circles. The collective techno rave parties carry on the legacy of the audiovisual attack from the PINK FLOYD concerts in 1968, to cite one example. As the psychedelic movement was a large cultural phenomenon, it is difficult (and maybe unnecessary) to fence it to a clear category. Psychedelic progressive rock has been developing towards several different directions over time, and the task of classifying them as distinct genres and sub-genres is an ever ongoing process, often loaded with strong opinions. The psychedelic rock artists which are not considered as progressive in style are not listed in the databse of www.Progarchives.com. This in order to maintain the site's scope to be a progressive rock reference.

The aim of this description is to be a tool of reference for potential and existing fans of the genre, and we hope that this will aid those who read it to a better understanding of the genre as well as to enjoy and discuss the subject at hand both in the forums of the Progarchives website as well as in other places online and offline both.

Pharaoh Overlord
Circle Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

5 stars CIRCLE are a Finnish band that I've enjoyed over the years, I'd especially recommend "Prospekt" from 2000 and "Guillotine from 2003. Anyway this latest album is without question my favourite release by them. Now I'm not trying to be confusing but there is a companion album to CIRCLE's "Pharoah Overlord" record by a band called PHAROAH OVERLORD and it's called "Circle". They were released at the same time and it has to be known that a few members of CIRCLE are in PHAROAH OVERLORD which is like their Stoner Rock side project. This is different from not only anything I've heard by CIRCLE but really it's different from anything I've heard. I love Guldbamsen's description of the music on here as having those Navajo rhythms. And it was he who brought this album to my attention so thanks David! The music here has this melancholic and repetitive groove to it with chanting and mostly bass horns honking. It really sounds incredible as each song is connected by my description, then picture this leather wearing frontman who's into JUDAS PRIEST as he screams and yells several times which just adds to the enjoyment for me.

"Kostto" is laid back and melancholic as the guitar is picked while vocal melodies sing over top. This continues until before 2 1/2 minutes when the horn, bass and drums join in. Man this fuller sound makes this even more satisfying. A scream before 5 minutes. I like the way they'll add or subtract from the groove here as it plays out. "Kavelen Luiden Paalla" opens with drums as the horn starts to honk and distorted guitar joins in. Some yells 3 1/2 minutes in and this will continue for some time including some extreme vocal expressions. The bass arrives 6 minutes in and it's very upfront leading the way.

"Aavasaksa" has a catchy rhythm of guitars, bass and drums. Vocal melodies will come and go then it's the horn joining in. More vocal melodies before 3 minutes. "Aldebaran" opens with chanting, percussion, horn and bass then the vocal melodies start to come and go. Again it's quite melancholic here. "Madonna Of Viggiano" opens with horns, bass and drums as fuzzed out guitar joins in then actual lyrics instead of vocal melodies(chanting). Man, so much going on here with all these sounds. Great track!

One of my favourites from 2015 no doubt and my favourite from CIRCLE. I believe this is studio album number 27 for the boys so there's lots to check out with this band. 4.5 stars rounded up for the innovation that's on display in spades.

Space Fusion Odyssey
Nik Turner Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by friso
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Nik Turner - Space Fusion Odyssey (2015)

I really liked the Space Gypsy (2013) album because of it's Hawkwind style and catchy tunes. On the Space Fusion Odyssey album another brand of spacerock is played, more in the tradion of Fusion styled Gong. Nik Turner, the ex windinstrumentalist from Hawkwind, has invited an interesting list of musicans; Robby Krieger (The Doors), Steve Hilliage (Gong, solo), Gilly Smith (Gong) and Billy Cobham (Mahavishnu Orchestra, solo).. that's impressive.

However, this album fails to amaze me. Whereas Space Gypsy had plenty of catchy moments and melodies, this album doesn't have many. The fusion chords and solo's give rise to some more interesting harmonics and bass guitar / drums extravaganza's, but I never feel attached to the music. Their are few vocals on the album and even fewer lyrics. The guitar leads and fusion solo's dissapoint me a bit, perhaps we have been spoiled by earlier records of Mahavishnu Orchestra and Return to Forever. Nik Turner himself is obviously not a very experienced jazz musician, for his solos fail to rise above the rock'n roll feel that often sounds a bit misplaced here. What is interesting is how he remained true to his original Hawkwind signature sound. Still the rhythms are quite well made and the interplay of rhythm instruments is often great! I very much doubt that this record could dissapoint spacerock listeners in general.

Conclusion. A brave attempt at re-creating the space fusion sound invented by Gong, but not an improvement. This album is mainly interesting for its list of great musicians and loose spacey atmospheres. Fusionlisteners will have better alternatives, so this is for spacerock listeners only I guess. Three stars.

Different Sun
Electric Eye Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Windhawk
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars Norwegian band ELECTRIC EYE is a fairly new group, and from what I understand they are something of a local super-group consisting of fairly well known musicians all living in or near the town of Bergen. Their debut album was released back in 2013. With "Different Sun" they are ready with the mythically dreaded second album, which was released through Norwegian label Jansen Plateproduksjon at the start of 2016.

I stumbled upon this album by chance myself, when following up on something of a vanity project I have: To list all new albums sorted under the progressive rock tag which is available to by from digital vendor emusic. Not an important task at all of course, but it is interesting for me personally to see the sheer number of albums that in some way or other is marketed directly or indirectly to this niche audience. This new album by Electric Eye was among the recent additions to that list, and after giving it a brief run on Spotify I decided that I needed to get this one. And while emusic couldn't supply me, due to region restrictions, Google music could satisfy my need for instant gratification quite nicely.

As I do spend a fair deal of my spare time reviewing music, I figured I might as well have a go with this one as well, as my curiosity rather demanded that I had a full run through this album. And I have to admit that I am rather impressed by what this foursome have accomplished here. As with many other bands active today this isn't a band out to rewrite the rules of music as we know it, that should be crystal clear, but those who tend to be fascinated by psychedelic and progressive rock might want to take note.

My main impressions are that this is a band very much in love with the psychedelic music of the late 1960's and early to mid 1970's. And then spanning the whole canvas of music described in a psychedelic context from this era, albeit perhaps with a stronger orientation towards the rock based rather than pop based artists in general, and with something of an affection also for music of a more challenging nature in those landscapes. Not that this is an album I'd describe as challenging as such mind you, but there are numerous small details here that indicates that at least some of the guys in this band know their way around music that focus much more on chaotic and freaked out arrangements than those revolving more closely around distinct melodies and harmonic constructions.

So we have a song like Never Fade Away, a piece with a certain degree of hit potential to my ears, but with a sound that makes me feel like describing it as a bastard child of The Doors and late 70's Eloy. The more atmospheric laden concluding track Part One is a creation that would have been a good match for many late 70's Eloy albums as well, although I kind of presume that certain similarities in sound and style in this as well as the former case is more of an accidental thing. The bassist in Electric Eye would probably have a fun time listening to some mid to late 70's Eloy albums though, at least if my ears and my memory makes the right connections when writing this.

Elsewhere the band treats us to their amalgam of 60's and 70's material, some with more of a garage rock feel to them, other with a more clear orientation towards the cosmic aligned and space oriented bands from the 70's, with at times a liberal use of repetitive elements of the kind that was a staple in many krautock bands. Cosmic sounds and effects are at times used extensively too, and here and there there are even some subtle Hawkwind vibes creeping in amidst the more floating and elegant material with arguably more of a Pink Floyd touch to them, if not in sound and expression then at least in approach and spirit. But disharmonious and freaked out instrument effects have their fair and natural place too, adding a subtle touch of psychedelic freakout to the table. That effects of this kind can be included in a subtle manner is, at least for me, rather impressive.

All in all a strong production, and an album that appears to live and breathe tendencies from the heyday of psychedelic and cosmic rock in terms of songwriting, performance, instrumentation and production. If you have an affection for this kind of music in general, and a special soft spot for artists unafraid to explore it in a comparable manner to the ones active in the golden years of psychedelic rock, this is an album that merits an inspection.

Mondo Drag Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Aussie-Byrd-Brother
Special Collaborator Rock Progressivo Italiano Team

4 stars A tasty little 35 minute spacy and heavy retro-rocker, 2015's self-titled second official Mondo Drag album sees the original band, which included members of modern psych/blues group Blues Pills deliver a blast from the past of Seventies psych- tinged heavy rock with a battery of vintage and analogue gear. Running through a punchy mix of melodic rockers that work in everything from the scorching Hammond organ of Atomic Rooster, the heavy riffing of Black Sabbath and the psychedelic dreamy colour of the late Sixties/early Seventies Pink Floyd period, it's an addictive mix of catchy vocal tracks (keyboard player John Gamino steps into the lead vocal role here too) and one truly sublime centrepiece instrumental.

Lead track `Zephyr' is all business, a scorching Hammond organ-powered acid-rocker with treated vocals calling from the skies before the group races off in a frantic instrumental run, but it's a shame about the completely abrupt ending barely two minutes in! Nice slow-burn droning guitar (both Nolan Girard and Jake Sheley are credited on this LP) meanders over Cory Berry's steadying beat and the warm hum of organ opens `Crystal Visions Opens Eyes' before it takes a fiery turn, all Atomic Rooster-like occult tinged lyrics from a snarling voice commanding `Light the fire and make the offer', with great Hammond and guitar duelling finally climaxing together before a reflective and drowsy acoustic finish. Bookended by hard riff plodding, `The Dawn' quickly picks up in tempo and becomes a spirited Beggars Opera-style dash, and `Plumajilla' reveals itself to be one of the more ambitious pieces. The main guts of the tune is all muscular Deep Purple-like riffs and walls of Black Sabbath thick grumbling atmosphere with a sexy dark strut to it, but drifting strains of flute weaving in and out and a reflective instrumental diversion in the second half holds eerie Pink Floyd organ that grows triumphant and eventually comforting.

The flip-side may be even better, starting with `Shifting Sands', an up-tempo relentless bubbling psych/space-rocker, Zack Anderson's chasing bass murmuring sweetly behind shimmering other-worldly treated vocals, warping distorted electronics and weeping David Gilmour-like electric guitar caresses. Then the crowning achievement of the album arrives with instrumental `Pillars of the Sky'. Behind Nick Mason-esque drum steadiness, thick thoughtful bass and drowsy late Sixties Gilmour guitar embers. Keyboardist John Gamino concocts an ocean of whirring electronics, Hammond organ drones, twirling Moog spirals and fragile Mellotron veils over piercing piano that brings to mind the `Atom Heart Mother'-era, and it sounds like a lost Pink Floyd classic from the early Seventies. `Snakeskin' then closes the album, an acid rocker with a mantra-like quality of Doors-ish crooning invocations, and brooding unceasing Hammond fire smouldering delivers a lurking unease and plenty of wafting smoky incense mystery.

Recorded back in 2011-12, this will prove to be a transitional album for the group, as two members departed to fully focus on the now higher-profile Blues Pills, but with bassist Ventura Garcia and drummer Andrew O'Neil now in place, a new album `Occultation of Light' is already due in February 2016. But no matter how that one turns out, for now `Mondo Drag' is easy to replay, full of dirty foot-tapping grooves, loaded with cool playing and housed in gorgeous deep-space artwork (do yourself a favour and snap up one of the lovely vinyl copies!), so what's not to love?

Four stars.

5 stars Hawkwind archival live albums are, to say the least, thick on the ground - but this one has great sound quality and captures the band during one of their creative peaks. Just as the preceding year's Space Ritual tour would be based around the loose concept of a journey through the stars, the 1974 tour had as its schtick a trip through time to 1999 - but Prince isn't anywhere in sight.

What this amounts to is a sound much like a somewhat less overwhelming and rather more varied and technically adept take on the sound of Space Ritual, with a different enough setlist to be worth the price of entry. Material which would later end up on Hall of the Mountain Grill and Warrior On the Edge of Time also gets previewed. The band even manage to reclaim The Watcher from a quirky throwaway track from the end of Doremi Fasol Latido into something rather more powerful.

Watch out that you don't get fobbed off with the truncated 1CD version of this album, and you'll have a fine addition to any Hawkwind collection; this is a real gem that doesn't deserve to get loss in the mass of questionable live releases that have cluttered up the band's back catalogue.

Förnekaren
Kungens Män Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator PSIKE Team & Band Submissions

4 stars Since 2013 this quintet from Stockholm, currently consisting of Hans Hjelm, Mattias Indy Pettersson, Mikael Tuominen, Magnus Öhrn and Peter Erikson, is on the run to deliver hours of top-notch jamming psych/space rock music. 'Förnekaren' is their latest offering, a double LP production released on the German Adansonia Records label. Some may have the viewpoint to see Sweden as the mothership of space rock, at least concerning Europe. Not a bad call when you're considering the great amount of bands coming from there, respectively Scandinavia in a wider sense.

Anyway, you should know that this is another case far away from aimless noodling. The songs are trippy, basically relaxed, don't bear substantial twists and turns when it comes to the particular flow. Nonetheless you'll have the ability to follow something entertaining, an issue full of suspense. I'm quite sure they initially are starting with a loosely appointed framework regarding every recording session ... and then eventually rely on each other according to a further inspired and constructive process. Well, sounds kinda simple, however deserves deep respect.

Hence, attending a KUNGENS MÄN gig surely must be an impressive experience, what I unfortunately could not realize yet. Now let me point at two songs which are rather exemplary. The extended Sista Ordets Krigsdans Genom Snickeriet will need 22 minutes to unfold, where the hypnotic rhythm branch is acting kraut rock alike. Both electric guitars are leading through time and space with safety and trance appeal, are slightly variating featuring post as well as space rock attitude over the course. Yeah, this is able to enchant even long-time experienced fans of improvised music!

As for a valuable contrast Krautespark immediately follows as the shortest excerpt, though showing a proper drive, therefore this is somewhat close to the Oresund Space Collective I'd say, this especially due to the rather jazzy drumming. Also, at some point they are offering an US westcoast psychedelia feel. Space rock fans will be delighted - with additional support from some liked-minded musicians KUNGENS MÄN have put an excellent album to the table. And it's worth it to visit their bandcamp page occasionally, as they are very productive.

The Rule of Three
Moonwagon Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Eetu Pellonpaa
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars This third studio album of Moonwagon scribes a completely new kind of entry to their journey's log, their fresh approach on their cosmic conquest of sounds possibly dividing the reception among their fans. The personnel have reduced to trio due departure of their keyboard player, affecting to sound textures by reducing synthesizer presence and similarly giving more space to the bass player Janne Ylikorpi.

When looking to photographs of the band's recent gigs and reading the instrument details from the album booklet, I can't escape associations to Rush's late 70's and early 80's massive stacks of guitars, synthesizers and bass pedals. Like the albums from Rush-era referred focused to "post-apocalyptic" themes, there is also certain dystopic feeling on the whole album, a hint of seriousness when compared to their earlier record's abstract sonic rejoicing. This third album with three musicians seems to resonate with me to mankind's apocalyptic steps culminating to Trinity event, the scenario of final destruction presented most dramatically on the album covers and booklet. I mailed to Joni and asked about this scene, which appeared to be a deserted house with larger space for several activities, now being smashed to pieces by local kids. Later the building got burned to the ground, and somehow this also associates with my understanding of desolation and hardships culminating here in Finland outside the few city centrums with workplaces and universities.

This feeling is also strengthened by the opening verse "The ending is just the beginning", giving hope to the issue as like Petri Walli once wrote, "something new borns when something old dies". I certainly feel the band has reincarnated itself to a much better direction with this album, which I believe was a big enterprise to complete on basis of booklet notes about recordings and mastering. There seems to be more focus also to pleasantly pulsing rhythmic grooves and quite accessible melodic compositions. The psychedelic rock riffs and descending motives enhance the sinister flavor of the recording's infinite patterns, but the music does not grow on sadistic levels. Instead there seems to be some kind of human presence around observing the chaos of reality from the imagination of musician's work, aiming to find repercussive reflections with the listener's feelings. Musically I felt the album on a whole both synthesize the aggressive elements found from their debut record and more ethereal tones of their second album. There are also more psychedelic vibes associating with fresh avocados tasting of Kingston Wall on among the songs, and there are also few tracks with vocals, breaking the silence of space. Also tracks like "Run to The Sun" and "Skylines at Night" have some sort of Hawkwind feeling on them, however without cosmic synth electronics blurring on the background. Joni Tiala has also had currently a very active musical phase, as in addition of Moonwagon works he has released a solo album, toured with folk group Vellamo and also worked on musical projects aimed to young children. I believe this has affected to the width of his musical perception and allowed elements of several styles to be adopted on the sound of this fine album.

As only minor critic I would suggest separating opening intro speaking as their own tracks on the CD's, like was done on The Jimi Hendrix Experience's "Axis: Bold as Love" digital versions do. How important the narrations are to the album wholeness, this kind of reciting might grow tiresome quite fast. This can possibly be just an indication of today's hastiness of listeners, caught to the maelstrom of hectic society. So warmly recommended for enthusiasts of spaced out progressive rock, surfing on waves of psychedelia but not getting lost to too stoned noodling's. I would also suggest keep eye on event's happening at Oulu's Tukiohta; This stellar drinking place for many kinds of underground events gather also psychedelic light shows, interesting art rock bands from Northern Finland also Swedish groups of the scene. I'm uncertain what the future plans of the trio is, but whatever that would be, with this album they close one circle and finish their journey back home with great style.

Sensations' Fix Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Neu!mann
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Guitarist Franco Falsini and his band Sensations' Fix released only a handful of LPs in their prime, which would seem to indicate something less than a success story but more than a cult act. Things might have been different if Falsini had showed more interest in making money instead of music. But that was never his aim, and his lifelong indifference to anything outside the actual music has kept it fresh, if undeservedly neglected.

The band's third album, from 1976, is more or less typical of the distinctive Fix style: economical synth and guitar explorations, on a tighter leash than most Space Rock. The amateur home production is a handicap, and demands a little forbearance when heard today. Richard Ursillo's bass guitar is mixed too low, and the ace drumming of Keith Edwards (another American expat, outnumbering the locals in a supposedly Italian group) is often inaudible.

An optimist might say the inadequate sound quality helped to keep the music safely insulated from the multi-track excesses of the era. In my own experience, this and other Sensations' Fix albums enjoyed complete immunity from the irrational Post-Punk vinyl purges that decimated my once-proud Progressive Rock library, precisely because of that diamond-in-the-rough quality. Despite their cosmic attitude the Fix was a garage band at heart, and needs to be approached as such.

So ignore the muddy sound, and the glossy ineptitude of the front cover art. The gritty photograph inside the original gatefold sleeve, showing the quartet at work in their makeshift basement studio outside Florence, Italy, is a more honest representation of their music: the dystopian energy of the song "Boat of Madness"; the sci-fi trippiness of the title track; the ecstatic "Map".

And above all, the insinuating "Strange About Your Hands": a Fix classic, revamped (with lyrics) from an earlier instrumental, business as usual for the parsimonious Falsini. The guitarist would frequently recycle the same music under different titles, mostly to confound the bean-counters at Polydor Records, who weren't really listening anyway. At one point the band even released an entire album outside Falsini's contract with Polydor ("Vision's Fugitives", an apt title), upsetting their paymasters and further confusing their recorded legacy.

Robert Fripp, an acknowledged hero to Falsini, once wrote: "The business of a musician is music. The business of a professional musician is business." That was Sensations' Fix: a group straddling the hard line separating boundless amateurs from reluctant professionals.

Three strong stars for this effort, with another added for taking the high road to obscurity.

Handlingnoise Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by progadicto

4 stars What an amazing and astonishing discover!!! Got to recognize that I started listen this album full of previous friends comments that describes he sound of Handlingnoise like a new wave of psych... Well, the album is not that awsome but it has a singular style which makes you listen every song with many attention...

These boys take his time to build heavy atmospheres directed to epic moments created by guitars and keyboards supported by a strong base of drums. They don't leave moments for the rest of the ear while they build sound walls that chain different melodies in a musical construction that exploits in epic psych finales at the end of every song.

It is not a great album but it fulfills the function to spend and entertain. 3 and a half for me...

Hawkwind Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by friso
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Hawkwind - Palace Springs (1991)

Among the long list of mediocre Hawkwind recordings, both live and studio, there are some bright spots that should interest listeners of space rock and progressive rock in general. This is one of them. A part live part studio album, it features both older songs 'The Golden Void' (differenty titled) and songs from the eighties era of the band. The first string of songs is particularly interesting, the opening song with Bridgett Wishart (I like her vocals, wish she sung more on this record) is a bit of a mixed bag, but Treadmill and the Warrior on the Edge of Time section is beautiful and exciting. The recordings sounds good, though not perfect - yet is has some live-feel to it that I like.

Hawkwind having a good go at their kind of music means simple metalriffs, perhaps a catchy lead, drowsy vocals and loads of electronical effects swirling all over the place. I guess it is about the feel. The adventure of spacerock pioneering. The abstract rock fantasy. On these recorings, made in 1989, the band has combined it's seventies sound with good sounding keyboards making it a good summary of their career. I like some other late recordings of them, like the great Love in Space live record (perhaps their best), but that one almost leaves out the seventies favorites completely.

A big three and a halve for this one.
