Echoes And Dust Review Anthroprophh 'OMEGAVILLE'

Echoes And Dust review Anthroprophh 'OMEGAVILLE' album:

"Showcasing this pastiche of British life and culture in such a ferocious yet entertaining way".

It Reads:

It’s time to take a trip, one of many trips that Rocket Recordings have offered over the years, to the insanely twisted-psychedelic-rock-out land of Omegaville, the latest album by Anthroprophh. What’s to be found here? Only a manic rush of an experience that throws us through an almost satirical universe representative of our own, where the familiar elements of England feels warped and mutated into something wonderfully indulgent, whilst simultaneously feeling like a cosmic journey into worlds new and unknown, where nothing is predictable, where all rules are thrown out the windows into the streets of Omegaville, and where everyone of a certain disposition is sure to have a truly wonderful time....

Echoes and Dust


High praise has been coming in for what some are calling a 'masterpiece':

"Fans of The Heads might wish to look away now because I think that this might just be the best thing that Paul Allen has ever done. 
10/10" Psych Insight

"Possibly one of the most important albums you will own." 
Days of Purple and Orange

"Guaranteed to be one of the year’s best, brutal and intensely beautiful releases of the year." 
Get into This

"The Stooges demolishing MC5's dressing room with Lemmy-era Hawkwind turned up to 11 on a dusty tape deck." 
The Quietus

The Independent Voice reviews Rocket Twenty

They say:

I headed to Islington’s The Garage for a full on day as the second date of Rocket Recordings’ 20th Birthday took place. Around 10 hours of a range of genres would be filling my ears courtesy of Gum takes Tooth, Goat, Hey Colossus, Housewives, Gnoomes, Mamuthones and Temple ov BBV.

Temple ov BBV are a group formed of members from Gnod & Radar Men From The Moon, which explains why there were ten members on stage at The Garage. A huge soundscape of long form psych with the slow flowing numbers traversing the space and rattling the rib-cages of everyone in attendance. Temple_OV_BBVA few crowd members were really into it, standing, eyes closed and absorbing the moment. I especially liked the penultimate number, the tantric beat continuing onward as a cacophony of noise and energy snuck up on me.Temple_OV_BBV

Mamuthones were next up. The electro-indie style 4 piece from Italy performed a lot of upbeat numbers. They were a stark contrast to the previous band with some huge thumping bass from the drums, some great guitar work and various electronics from the two other members, including the vocalist who was surrounded by keys and buttons....

Moose and Hobbs say some words about Rocket Twenty

They say:

Blast into the future

Last weekend saw three days of loud. Three days of bands playing loud. I like bands playing loud so, obviously, I was there.

My travelling companions on this trip were Ellen, Rob and Simon, who had descended on The Smoke for the occasion, and also Jeremy on the Saturday. Over the course of the weekend I saw a whole range of bands but it was impossible to see everyone so I’m just going to focus on a few of my favourites who, for me, really stood out.

I started the weekend wishing that I’d arrived just a little earlier, as I only caught the last song from Flowers must Die and it sounded great; funky and bouncy is a good way to get things started. They were swiftly followed by Julie’s Haircut who played a cracking set with a little bit of jazzy sax and a lot of krauty-rock.

I spent all day Saturday at an archaeology conference (which was very very good BTW. See #lamas18 for some tweetage) and then sprinted over to The Garage straight afterwards to wreck my hearing. Unfortunately I’d missed Temple Ov BBV and, just to make it worse, my friends were all raving about them. ­čśŽ

Gnoomes, from Russia, reminded me of 1990. They’re that shoegazey moment before it went all fey and a bit too shimmery-dreampop. There was something about them that reminded me of The Pale Saints, although they don’t actually sound like The Pale Saints. They’re definitely the pop end of the weekend and I liked them...

John-Mark from MIEN said this about the MNMX001 mix:
“I grew up feeling mildly obsessed with 12” extended remixes and synth pop, which are definite influences on what I bring to MIEN. I wanted to blend these elements with other inspirations that formed our sound including industrial, psychedelia, musique concrete and krautrock. The original idea was to make something a little seedy and raw, something you’ll hear plenty of on our album.”
