This interesting Italian formation invites us for a trip with their musical time-machine to the early Seventies. In those days most of the big record companies had small sub-labels in order to host their progressive rock acts (like EMI had Harvest for Pink Floyd), there they got room for adventure and experiments. Well, listening to Areknames you can easily confuse this for a Seventies rooted band. This live CD was recorded during the Burg Herzberg Festival 2007. Don't expect elaborate music but let you carry away by Areknames their compelling vintage sound, loaded with mindblowing work on the Hammond organ!
These guys wear their 70s influences on their shirtsleeves and for a full blown heavy jamming prog-psych-krautrock experience you can do no better than Space Debris. Like their previous albums the guys get a jam going and just take off, with most of the tracks being in the 14-18 minute range, giving them plenty of room to stretch out and explore. This is a world where the guitar and Hammond organ reigns supreme dueling and trading leads throughout.
A great live recording from Belgian spacerockers who performed this gig at Burg Herzberg Festival in 2007. Here we get 14 tracks of instrumental spacerock jams, not far from Oresund Space Collective and Ozric Tentacles.
This is a recording of the live concert held at Burg Herzberg Krautrock/Hippie festival from 7/15/99. A kind of Woodstock in Germany with a lot of bands. Sounding from psychedelic rock to berlin school electronic. Release features one track each from seven different artists that played at the festival. A couple of really good cuts here include Ashra's (aka Ash Ra Temple) eighteen-minute "Twelve Samples" and the Hypnotix eleven-minute piece "Roots". Top of the line what many might refer to as new age/world music. The Dissidenten tune "Instinctive Traveler" hit sort of like a Gong wanna be. Tunes here from Sunya Beat, Edgar Broughton, Caravan and Might As Well are so-so.
With the vibe of early Pink Floyd, Strawberry Alarm Clock, The Electric Prunes and Spacemen 3 running through their drugged-up veins, Germany's very own Vibravoid excel at synthesizing these influences into a heavy storm of psychedelic sounds, shapes, and colors.
