Rocket Probes October 2009 Playlist

Hills – Death 1
(Swedish psych/kraut rock, don’t know anything about this band and what they do is nothing new, but they do it VERY WELL indeed, especially the last track, some great Fuzz laden motorik!!!)

Part Chimp – Thriller
(Good to have them back with another album of great frenzied noise rock)

Spectrum – War Sucks
(Same ‘ol stuff from Sonic, but that is fine with us...a great return!!!!)

Broadcast and the Focus Group – Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age
(Thanks to Martina from Warp for this...an imaginary soundtrack from a film I would love to see..... )

Lightning Bolt – Earthly Delights
(Great new album, and nice to see they have dusted off the wah....perfect for a Sunday morning hangover!!!!)

Choukoku no Niwa– More Echoes, Touching Air landscape
(From their split with Boris, amazing 24minute Can’esque track of tight rhythms and free rock)

Harmonia - Live 74
(Motorik synthesizers and percussive pulse and throb grooves from the crusts of Kraftwerk, Neu! and Cluster)

Ray Russell - Rites & Rituals
(1971- forerunner of today’s avant-guitar/improv/noise scene - electric free jazz embraced rock)

Jonas Reinhardt
(70s krautrock-inspired spaced out propelling cosmic adventures in sound)

King Crimson - Larks' Tongues in Aspic
(Exotic percussive tension building, improvisational hypnotic and harsh throughout)
