Product Description

BBC Review

Since the late 90s, Amorphous Androgynmous AKA The Future Sound Of London AKA Garry Cobain and Brian Dougans have been weaving together two-hour broadcasts of their favourite records that could be loosely classed as 'Cosmic Space Music'. After ten years of messing with our heads via the wireless, they now pick their choicest mind-melting moments on what promises to be a fine series of double cds. It's a collection that perfectly runs the gauntlet from kitsch (Lord Sitar's I Am The Walrus) to uber cool (Miles Davis or Can).

In this day and age when 'obscurity' is an almost meaningless term the duo seem to really know their (glass) onions. This reviewer was pleased to be introduced to Bath's Cranium Pie as well as the neo-Fairport Conventionisms of Espers. And it's a joy to know that SOMEONE else out there appreciates the desert twang of the Friends Of Dean Martinez. Also the pair's own tracks sit nicely in the midst of all this synapse-snapping action.

The boys are, of course, expert at weaving this stuff into a pleasing journey through the backroads of your mind with, yes, the odd wrong turn. Why anyone would pick Larry The Lamb-alike Devendra Banhart over the far better Tyrannosaurus Rex is a mystery, but then you slip into the Mahavishnu Orchestra's mighty You Know, You Know, and all is well with the world again. Which is another way so saying that A Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble is a trip (man).

For every Nick Nicely ersatz psych moment there's the messed up funk of Miles' Rated X; and the cod Jamaican nonsense of something like Donovan's twee Riki Tiki Tavi is easily negated by the wah-wah moonstomp of Can's Flow Motion (with the late Michael Karoli completely on fire). The pleasure is in the bumps, twists and turns. Here's to volume two... --Chris Jones

I have all kinds of praise for this collection. I had not heard any of this material before save three of the selections. I was intrigued with the segues and liked that they blended and morphed into each other. I like the mix of old and new material and especially enjoy it when the ancient and modern coalesce in such a way as to muddle any era identification. Good to finally hear Tommy James selection and Devendra Banhart's music mixed in with the other tunes. A complaint would have to be made of the almost impossible to read text. The cosmic prose was not a bother-trying to read it was!
Otherwise, I am enjoying my listenings and look forward to future comps of this nature. MW

Anyone with a good psychedelic record collection will be familiar with a good psych comp. Essentially this is a compilation put together by someone who obviously has a taste for good music on the spacey side. However as far as a psychedelic compilation goes it's not that adventurous or revealing. Tracks by Donovan and Hawkwind whilst good tracks will have been heard a million times by anyone seriously into this kind of music. In places the tracks flow together well, theres stuff I wasn't familiar with and tracks I didn't like at all. As with any compilation you could criticise the track selection. I would have issues with a number of choices (Is Maypole really the best track from The Whicker Man ? and the sing along Riki Tiki Tavi by Donovan is not only a really annoying song but not in the least representative of his more cosmic recordings such as Celeste) What really lets this whole thing down is the hippy drivel in the booklet. I'm sure anyone who likes this kind of music is aware of some kind of Universal Oneness but if anyone seriously believes that Lord Sitar and the Mahavishnu Orchestra have anything in common either spiritually or musically then they have been smoking the wrong kind of camberwell carrot.

This double cd functions best as a sampler for lots of interesting and obscure folky noodlings, and Pink Floyd-esque indulgence - "psychedelic" it is not...
Jung described the "psyche" as containing both conscious and unconscious mind, so you would think that a lot of the tracks on a "psychedelic" collection like this would really stir things up, shake you by the bootstraps and bring weird creatures and landscapes bubbling up from the primitive unconscious.
Unfortunately, my grannie's breakfast cereal is more psychedelic, most of these tracks are very pipe n slippers, chill out room type music, there are hardly any balls out rippers at all.
So, if you like your psychedelic music to be challenging, out there and an assault that kicks your lazy brain back to life, you need to look elsewhere to artists of the ilk of Amon Duul 2, Chrome, Loop, Spacemen 3, The Residents, Wooden Shjips, Electric Wizard, The Chico Magnetic Band, Parson Sound, Ufomammut, Expo 70, The Butthole Surfers, Todd Tamanend Clark, 13th Floor Elevators, Aphex Twin, Goblin, early Monster Magnet, Circle/Pharaoh Overlord, Mort Garson, Heldon, Third Eye Foundation and so on...
If you bother to read the claptrap inside, it's clear that despite all the "cosmic" mantra, this is really someone's ego trip, maaaaan...Do we really need 4 or more pictures of the DJ?
