Thank you

These are one of those old German groups who recorded one amazing album and the vanished into obscurity. Their style was very bizarre, comprising of elements of rock, jazz, classical and Eastern music. It's not possible for us to compare them with anyone else as we've heard nothing like it. Side 1 has 5 tracks, the second track is Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon...Ford, and is full of unusual ideas; weird, slurring drums, droning organ, haunting breathing sounds...the whole affect is quite astounding. Most of side 2 is taken up by The End, which works along similar lines with a backdrop of amplified Stylophone, chanting vocals and growling bass fiddle. All we can say is if you see it, buy it, as it is a very rare and hard to find album.

Yes, this must be a concept album, at least according to the title, but not much inside the grooves conveys a Huxleyan atmosphere. Although the brainchild of O'Brien, who wrote or co-wrote all the material, the main ingredient is the truly magical flute of Geller, who can produce any style imaginable and does so convincingly, too.
A sad recorder over solemn organ in ''Prologue'' slowly gives way to the warm sound patterns of ''Alpha'', a versatile piece of jazzy rock and leading to passages with experimental use of different tape speeds. ''Lenina'' is very serene with a narration and multi-voiced flutes, while ''Soma'' is krautrock in the best of traditions with long guitar improvisations over a floor of organ. Almost early Pink Ployd, but with the unusual sound of an embedded flexatone. And there is ''Malpais Corn Dance'', an unlikely track that sounds like folk music played by Martians.
Side B is dominated by the long suite ''The End'' (nothing to do with The Doors, of course) which pulls all stops. Wistful wind, English horn, ocarina, double-tracked recorders, sombre monk's choirs, Scottish percussion, wild electric guitars, heavy synths, cascading saxes, soft-horror, well anything almost, but somehow forged into a meaningful whole, that can hardly be compared with anything else we have heard. Krautrock in its best form, an at times almost magical record!
