Just An Important Album Pt 8

Another triplet of must-have albums of undescribeable aural experiences:

In Search Of Space

Doremi Fasol Latodo

Space Ritual

In spring 1973 Yan and I for the first time did act as DJs on a big school disco at our own school. Some people knowing our musical taste were suspicious, but the arrangers of the disco only knew us as kind and easygoing guys and had no idea to what we use to listen to at home. They probably thought it was the chirpy-chirpy-cheep-cheep stuff that was going around at the radio of the time.
After some heavy openers with tracks from Iggy & The Stooges Raw Power we turned on 'You Shouldn't Do That' from In Search Of Space on the highest volume and left the DJ stand, went dancing with some inncoent girls. Soon we were the only ones dancing....

This was the beginning and the end of our very short career as DJs.
On the other hand it our love affair with the early Hawkwind stuff recently had begun...


Mushroom Gods

Sometimes coincidentally your footsteps crosses an unknown path.
A while ago I became aware of the cultish British psych/spece/whatever band Mushroom Gods.

From their own information:
"We are one of the best British underground neo psychedelic progressive rock groups of the late 90's to come out of Leeds, perhaps too underground for our own good as we where never signed to a major record deal but had a large following of spores around the country. Extensive touring gave us an energy and a freakout in our live sound quite unlike our peers always unfashionable and always unapologetic for it. We are Influenced by a real mix of bands; Hawkwind, Amon Duule 2, Can, Tangerine Dream, Jimi Hendrix, Big Black, Stooges, Velvet Underground, Pere Ubu, Soft Machine, Captain Beefheart and of course early Pink Floyd we where born in the wrong era but are still die hard hippies . The Mushroom Gods are: Lost Johnny keyboard, vocals Dick Freek drums Mathew Corbett sitar, flute, effects Fast Elbert Kram guitar CJD Bass, vocals if you wish to contact or more info; if you want the music for fwee go to....................... ...................and download now its not illegal i own the fkin music!"

I couldn't have said it better myself. Just go for it! It's great!
They should at least have been as big as Hawkwind (especially as H-wind of the 90s wasn't too intersting, impo).

Just An Important Album Pt 7

Silver Apples - Silver Apples (1968)

Silver Apples - Contact (1969)

Two guys from New York City, Simeon Coxe III (Simeon), on oscillators and primitive synthesizer of own homemade origns and/or constructions, and Danny Taylor on drums and percussions. Stanley Warren was a guy who wrote the words to most of the songs
Modern, original, almost a decade before Alan Vega & Suicide's attempts. Melodic mantras and pulsating beats we recognised on the dancefloors in the late 90s.
And on and on...
These two records are magnificent and good, pointing forward in a most unusual way. And we're still talking about the 60s...
An important album? Well, actually it wasn't for me. I've recently heard them, but them almost chocked me and made me think how come this little combo became cult and not on top of the bills of cred?
I don't have any answers... Sometimes things just happens.
Anyway.. lend them a few ears or so...
In 1970 a third album was recorded, Garden, but as their label Kapp Records, was bought by MCA and the album was lost and forgotten until 1996 when it was released.
