PSYCHEDELIC/SPACE ROCK

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.

Everyone Into Position
Oceansize Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by siLLy puPPy

3 stars Well, it seems I am just not suited to click with these guys. I honestly don't hear the appeal with this band. First of all, the aspects I liked about the debut mainly the psychedelic and spacey effects that they utilized are mostly lacking on this second release EVERYONE INTO POSITION. To me, OCEANSIZE have de-emphasized those psychedelic tendencies and firmly placed themselves into the more alternative rock / metal sound. There is a certain spaciness to be had here and there especially on the slower tracks but by large I find them to sound like a distorted version of Soundgarden mixed with Tool. Two bands that I love, but when I listen to OCEANSIZE I just can't help but want to put on those two bands instead. To be fair this comparison tapers off and I find the tracks towards the end of the album more interesting and they save this from a lower rating.

Once again this album is waaaaaay too long and I find most of the first half repetitve and frankly boring. The variation between the songs isn't as diverse as I would like and the endless repetitive riffing just leaves me a little cold. I just can't connect to their sound as of yet. I realize some bands take a while to connect with if given the proper saturation effect but when it comes to OCEANSIZE I just can't seem to get into it enough to warrant multiple repeated listens when I would rather hear so many other artists. I have been trying to pinpoint exactly what it is that doesn't work for me and I really can't say. I love alternative metal / rock and space rock and post rock and well, pretty much everything that these guys are utilizing in their sound so I can only conclude that some sounds work for some and not for others. I certainly don't think anything on this album is bad. Perhaps it will sink in and i'll wake up one day and like it and want to throw it on again and again. Stranger things have happened. For now only 3 stars.

Psychedelic Teatime
Margin Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Matti
Collaborator Neo-Prog Team

3 stars The new German artist MARGIN makes it clear also in the promotional texts that PINK FLOYD is the major influence, and it's indeed audible in the music. To me this is not a problem, but if the idea of listening to a Floyd-soundalike doesn't appeal to you, you may as well keep clear of Margin. Being practically a one-man effort (concerning even the album design) this is amazingly well done, from a technical point of view.

There are many ways to interpret the essence of "psychedelic rock" today. The historical weight cannot be escaped anyhow. One can try and find a unique way of sounding "trippy" and "mind blowing", though it's harder and harder nowadays not to sound like someone. Or then one can underline the word "psychedelic" thematically and make quite safe and accessible music in the style and honour of one of the most legendary and beloved rock groups all time. It's obvious which way is easier and commercially safer. It may also be easy to forget such tribute-like band several years later. I don't mean to be cynical; these were my thoughts about relations between Psychedelia and this album.

'A Mysterious Cup of Tea' is a 23'-minute suite in five parts, numbers two and four with vocals. Definitely lyrics aren't MARGIN's strength, actually they're just escapistic day-dreaming "steps beyond the reality". "Look at this cup of tea, it's turning to a cup of sea with some islands / a saucerful of secrets sounds deep from an unknown ground / up to the highlands, it resounds". Thanks to the soaring melodic instrumental parts the suite is my favourite on this album. The best side-long epic that Pink Floyd never did! But sadly all is not up to that level. 'Psychedelic Underground' is actually a catchy pop song despite some prog rock flavour - including a mellotron sound - but especially the decision to end the album with its 10'-minute 2nd version is not good at all! It's rather disturbing how Lutz Meinert's vocals on it make me think of PET SHOP BOYS, of all bands in the world.

'Landscapes on the Sky' is a mellow and slightly melancholic track. I like the sounds of acoustic guitar, glockenspiel (xylophone?) and mellotron. My associations were the Finnish Folk-Psych group KOSMOS, and for the long instrumental section late sixties Pink Floyd at their calmest (e.g. 'Julia Dream'). Carola Meinert's backing vocals are in a very minor role on the album; I would have wanted to hear more of her, and less of Lutz Meinert himself who's a wonderful multi- instrumentalist but not a great singer. Also 'Last Exit to Pluto' concentrates on calm, Floydian sound painting. As an instrumental and relatively progressive track it's very enjoyable. But I can't help I dislike the re-entry of the weakest song, and the proggy extension of it doesn't save anything.

Three stars for a nice listening enjoyment are earned without a doubt. Weak lyrics, average vocals and the lack of real personality would make the fourth star seem quite undeserved. But in my opinion this is a very nice album to return to when in need of soothing prog-pop without harder edges.

Margin Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by UMUR
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars "Psychadelic Teatime" is the debut full-length studio album by German psychadelic/progressive rock act Margin. The album was released through Madvedge Records in June 2014. Margin was founded in 2011 by Lutz Meinert (Spielte, For Your Pleasure), who sings most vocals and plays most instruments on "Psychadelic Teatime". He is joined here by Carola Meinert (additional vocals) and Arne Spekat (acoustic guitars).

The music on the album is psychadelic/progressive rock, highly influenced by late 60s/early- to mid 70s Pink Floyd. The music is laid back and slow building towards louder and more epic climaxes, but always pleasant to listen to. Organic drumming and bass playing, emotional guitar playing and some nice vintage keyboard/organ sounds spiced up by the occasional sedated vocal line (Lutz Meinert´s voice and way of singing remind me slightly of a more ordinary sounding Roine Stolt). The musicianship is top notch and you don´t notice that this is basically a one-man project.

"Psychadelic Teatime" features 9 tracks, but the first 5 tracks on the album seque into each other to form the 20 minutes + long "A Mysterious Cup of Tea" suite. While the Pink Floyd influence is heard throghout the album, it´s on this track that it´s strongest. The long suite is followed by the shorter "Psychedelic Underground - The Short Trip", which is an almost radio friendly catchy track. "Landscapes On The Sky" features a folk influence while still retaining it´s psychadelic rock foundation while "Last Exit to Pluto" is a bit more ambient and atmospheric. The album closes with an extented version of the "Psychedelic Underground" track titled "Psychedelic Underground - The long Trip". While there is satisfactory variation throughout the album there is also a good flow, so you´re never in doubt that it´s the same band playing.

While I wouldn´t put the sound production in the same catagory as some of the top notch sound productions of a band like Pink Floyd, "Psychadelic Teatime" is still relatively well produced and organic sounding, which suits the music well. All in all "Psychadelic Teatime" is a pleasant listening experience and a decent quality psychadelic/progressive rock album by Margin. They don´t really cover any new ground and I´m not sure that was the purpose either, but for what they do, they do it pretty well. While the musicianship are generally on a high level and the sound production decent, the album´s real strength is that the tracks are easy to tell apart and that the music flow well for the duration of the album. Although the music can be very laid back and slow, it´s never boring and my attention never wanders during it´s playing time. A 3 - 3.5 star (65%) rating is deserved.

Phoenix Rising (with System 7)
Rovo Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by tszirmay
Special Collaborator Crossover Team

4 stars I decided to chase this hitherto unknown to me Japanese act, uniquely attracted by the lure of Steve Hillage's presence on guitar as well as confirmation that he would be wielding his slippery axe and leaving the synths to long-time partner Miquette Giraudy . Then, I also noticed that this psychedelic/space combo was also staffed by two drummers. The clincher was the presence of a cover version of a Mahavishnu Orchestra classic "Meeting of the Spirits" Hmm! This could be good proggy stuff, further online video research revealed the need to take a risk, as no PA review has yet been posted.

Well, they have been around since 1998, releasing regularly intervalled albums, to relatively small prog-rock acclaim being more of a trance/jam band and I can only guess that by adding the Gongster and his famous lady the prog community will join in on the fun. Truth is the music presented here is definitely more club oriented techno/rave with stupendous though binary drumming, relentless bass pummeling, scouring violin sorties, cyclical guitar churnings and stop/start explosions. In fact, the correct definition would be a heavier, more organic version of System 7 (Hillage and Giraudy's band are huge in Japan) with harsher sounds, adding definitely more propulsion than a synthesized drum machine. The first two tracks "Hinotori" and "Love for the Phoenix" are clear examples of what System 7 is all about, electronic space jam excursions that are both linear and hypnotic.

One of the highlight tracks unsurprisingly is the John McLaughlin-penned "Meeting of Spirits" off the Inner Mountain Flame album, showcasing Hillage's command of his instrument as well as some spirited work from violinist Yuji Katsui, though the two Japanese drummers cannot match Cobham's whirlwind technique. The piece comes across as a much heavier version, which is actually highly appreciated.

Another cool track is "Cisco", which is a heftier lumbering bulldozer with an echoing guitar that sounds like a harmonica, sort of wondering if it was not inspired by War's classic "Cisco Kid" (I think so!) , creating an all-instrumental jam-fest that rambles on for 13 minutes of beat-infested glory. There is an obvious Ozric Tentacles feel, when bassist Jin Harada steps up to the plate and starts swinging for the fences. Hillage, together with fellow axe man Seiichi Yamamoto (who is legendary in his native country) then start carving some serious slices of cosmic splendor, boldly going where few have gone before. This is a highly bellicose arrangement, thrashing hard and mercilessly, skirting the outer edges of delirium and unafraid to bliss out.

"Unbroken" starts out all fluffy white clouds, ponderous slivers of undulating rhythms and serene atmospheres, until the violin starts screeching boldly, a twisting neo-jazz electro- space shuffle, sort of urban cool in a delirious kind of way. Imagine JL Ponty meeting a Gonged-out Steely Dan! Steve really kills it here, showing clearly why he is such a prog guitar icon. Tremendous track!

The simmering and somewhat playful "Sino Dub" is a Yamamoto-penned epic that is just too simplistic and frankly puerile to my ears, at odds with the three previous tracks that had such massive doses of bite, grit, beat and fire. The eternal drum rhythm in particular is very boom-boom-tchak, closer to the Orb than anything else (funny, Hillage played on the debut!). This is a skipper.

The final track "Unseen Onsen" is an ambient Giraudy piece that showcases interplanetary synthesized resonations that flicker about in seemingly Oriental spheres (Gong), strips of Moogy stringlets forever blowing bubbles into the not too distant cosmos. It's refreshing, meditative, spiritual and hypnotic. A definite mood driver.

Power And The Passion
Eloy Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by psychprog1

3 stars This is an atmospheric album, but I would generally call it "poor man's prog"... I remember, around 34 years ago, when Eloy came to my country and this album became an "icon" for local prog fans. I believe this was the first ever concert by a foreign prog band in this country (people from my country must have just guessed what I'm talking about), and I definitely understand why Eloy LPs like this one have been so much worshipped around here.

But... I cannot disregard the flat vocals, the awkward lyrics, the poor and complacent playing which is more or less derivative of Jethro Tull and the like.

I still enjoy listening to it myself sometimes but I would find it naive to praise it a lot, as there are hundreds of pleasant prog LPs like this one.

Arcadium Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by psychprog1

5 stars This is a real dream come true for collectors of rare late 60s albums. I would very strongly recommend it to anyone looking for a masterpiece in the psych prog sub-genre. Apart of that it is a very moving album which has had a strong sentimetal impact on me, and on many other people as I can see. Indeed, I have heard (and read) a lot of people saying that this one almost changed their view on rock music when they first heard it.

People (like me) looking for forgotten masterpieces of the late 60s really regard this one as second to none. All our musical phantasies are here: long mysterious tracks of the highest quality, heartfelt vocals, dreamy production and all this recorded by an obscure record company-alternative club and packaged in one of the most enigmatic covers ever (the back cover adds to the aura, too). In addition to that, the band, as well as their enigmatic leader/songwriter Miguel Sergides disappeared immediately after this testament, leaving no traces (you will find nothing else if you google them). And a special treat, as if this was not enough: the 2 bonus tracks are so good, that in the case of another LP of the era they would be worth the price of admission alone! There are great albums that get re-issued with disappointing bonus tracks, but this is definitely a different case. Thank you Arcadium, whoever you were and wherever you may be now!

I believe that reviewing each and every track in this album wouldn't be necessary. Indeed, those who have heard it know what I'm talking about and adore it, unless they are not prepared to hear something so eerie (I understand that there are reviewers who give this one a single star while they believe that, say, Neal Morse is an absolute genius, but they surely have the right to think so). The rest are, to put it this way, lucky that they have not heard it yet... because a great musical experience still lies ahead!

Healthy Music In Large Doses (with Clearlight)
Spirits Burning Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator Psych/Space Team & Band Submissions

— First review of this album —
4 stars All right, I would say that SPIRITS BURNING are stretching the genre boundaries again with this album. But hey, it's okay - on one hand here we have a distinctive orientation towards jazz, symphonic and avant to state - however, overall synths and guitars are still representing a strong spacey vibe. And so, regarding such a stylistical mix, this album comes as another really unusual attempt. I could only name Bo Hansson, who - but only concerning some parts, to make it clear - had to offer roughly the same in style and mood. CLEARLIGHT head Cyrille Verdeaux from France is deeply involved in the production, makes a lasting expression due to his piano and organ input above all.

Again a bunch of musicians have made a contribution to the thirteen songs. Solely mastermind Don Falcone appears on every track, understandingly enough, as he has assembled the puzzle in the end. This time Daevid Allen plays a relatively minor role, being present on one song named Bring It Down - lyrics and vocals are offered by himself, related to environment protection in general. 'If the hurricane don't shake ya, maybe the song can wake ya' - lyrically seen a clear message, musically this makes it to a proper reggae tune anyhow.

SPIRITS BURNING are on a relaxed trip predominantly - the rock component takes a backseat in general. Hence the first two songs appear in a rather jazzy lounge outfit, where Raised On Coal & Oil is more suitable for background listening. Treasures At The Dawn Of The Century strongly features electronic elements, although eqipped with a sawing electric guitar too. The atmospheric ethno and chamber/symphonic flavoured Our Secret Cloud is the first to offer a vocal presence then, a gripping implementation due to some different stages - excellent - the album's peak I would say ...

... if not Infinite City works inspired in a quite similiar way, shows - partially distorted - lyrics in French by Verdeaux, just another tricky exemplar which obviously appears jazz/fusion laden. Hand Signals & Daily Horoscopes is the very best to remind me of the aforementioned Bo Hansson, where The Road To Shave Ice otherwise mirrors something like an avant space attitude. A variety of events is summed up, no wonder, considering that members of Thinking Plague, The Muffins, Universal Totem Orchestra are also taking part here.

'Healthy Music In Large Dosis' - an aural panacea in other words - this means yet another song collection where the listener has the opportunity to explore a lot which evolves off the beaten path. Released on Gonzo Multimedia this is an album with an unpredictable flow and quite a few compositions of high quality. Wind instruments are very present, just to note another prominent trademark. I hear a challenging blend of different music styles and instruments, suitable for moments of reflection basically ... and equipped with a lasting impression, if you decide to stay tuned to it for a while.

Senda's Song
Spiral Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Finnforest
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

— First review of this album —
2 stars Senda's Song is a shorter singles edit of a track called "The Memories Speak" from Spiral's "The Capital in Ruins" album of a few years back. It features Spiral contributor Senda Shallow doing a fragile and emotive vocal contrasted occasionally by the harder-edged guitar and programmed drumming. These fall away again leaving Senda singing over what sounds like a flanged effect on the guitar. The B side is an interesting unreleased track from the Spiral vaults (which must be enormous given their prolific creative habits). "The Sun Cauterizes His Soul" is a slow almost folksy based track with strummed guitar chords and cool upfront bass lines complimenting. The vocals are hollow and resigned, giving expression to horrific post-disaster imagery of the lyrics. But there is never any crushing here, Spiral goes the other direction with this and laments the pain in a less extreme manner. Nothing wrong with these songs, the rating is just noting this is a "fans" release. Senda's Song should be heard in full on Capital album and the B side is nice but not all that necessary. Great cover art in the Spiral tradition.

Avaruuskorpraali Paha Hirvi Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Matti
Collaborator Neo-Prog Team

4 stars AVARUUSKORPRAALI PAHA HIRVI (= Space Corporal Bad Moose) is a Finnish quartet who seem to have a joyful, loonie attitude in making Space Rock. On the back cover the young men dance merrily in a backyard at night wearing just shorts. The music is however very well done. This second album was re-released on vinyl in 2012; 200 numbered copies with a colourful painted version of the same front picture, much better than the original you see here. The title means "From the world of a night nurse", but considering the track titles there isn't a clear concept.

The barely 2-minute 'Intro' features wailing synths and a brief spoken narration about, hmm, sexual contacts with space flies & worms. Over-the-top fantasy humour! 'Avaruus, avaruus' (= "Space, space") is 9 minutes of pure, HAWKWIND-like Space Rock with a steady beat. The exciting, electronic soundscape can be associated with the spaciest rock acts of 70's Krautrock too. 'Kauniit silmät' (= "Beautiful eyes") has slower tempo, being no less hypnotic slice of spacey psychedelia. It's slightly reminiscent of Cyclone / Force Majeure -era TANGERINE DREAM.

The B side starts with 'Avaruustissit' (= "Space tits") which is built on a simple, endlessly repeated rhythm pattern. Certainly it has groove and nice sounds, but is perhaps a bit too long and monotonous. The next one (= "Interdeath") features no drums for change. Being close to Ambient / New Age it offers a welcome variety to the album. 'Munakello' (= "Egg timer") has a slow tempo and a melancholic, nocturnal atmosphere. The gentle guitarwork takes completely over synths. Excellent, not far from e.g. ORESUND SPACE COLLECTIVE. And finally comes "The Waking of Sexuality" (Yes, these rather silly titles are obviously from a young male mind!). The drums and the strong beat are again central, but synths and guitars have no difficulties to send the music into outer space.

Naturally it depends on the listener whether this music is hypnotic or boring. Hopefully my review helps you to estimate which reception you'd have. If you enjoy the mentioned bands and genres, you'll probably find a lot to enjoy in this meaty, groovy, ambientish and deeply psychedelic Space Rock. 3½ stars.

Without Introduction
Polyphony Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by siLLy puPPy

4 stars POLYPHONY was a short lived band from Virginia Beach, VA who put out this one highly eclectic album back in 1971 or 1972 depending on the source. Originally released on the Eleventh Hour label it has been long out of print until recent years. Unfortunately the re-release is pretty weak as it is not remastered, there are few liner notes and they actually list the wrong track order. Quite lame, however all that aside, it is the music that counts and the music is excellent and exciting. Probably one of the better progressive albums from the USA at this time.

I would call this an equal mix of influences from King Crimson in terms of proto-metal and avant-garde jazz, ELP or The Nice in terms of symphonic bombast and early Pink Floyd in terms of heavy psychedelic tendencies. The music is quite complex as it goes through many changes but generally always energetic and progressive to the max. This could easily be called eclectic. In addition to the major influences there are also Santana-esque percussion parts, strange slide guitar riffs, slow and pastoral Genesis-like symphonic parts and even some hard bluesy rock sections and circus music. The second track "Forty Second Thing In 39 Seconds" is a short little burst of symphonic moog wankery that is rather unique.

Unfortunately the production on this is not so good meaning bad. It has a tinny sound and is in clear need of a remastering. Musically this is quite exciting and I find it to be worthy of the term "long lost classic." The first track "Juggernaut" is just filled to the brim with every prog trick in the book and it takes a full 9 ½ minutes of instrumental prowess to finally get to the vocals on the track. This is the kind of prog that has the right formula going on. It is both melodic and slightly dissonant at times. It varies the tempos, time signatures and compositional developments and keeps it interesting throughout its entirety. With two sprawling epic tracks, POLYPHONY more than proved it was capable of playing with the big boys of prog. This is a band that I would love to hear more music from for the mere 37 minutes is only a teaser! Musically 4.5 but i'm only giving this 4 stars because the production is just so bad it hurts.
