Orion Awake

(Acme / Lion) Used CD $8.00

“Epic early to mid-1970s instrumental psychedelic space-rock from the Pyramid Records archive, said to be pseudonymous after-hours studio sessions featuring the biggest names on the Krautrock scene at the time. Heavy drums, jamming guitars and Hammond organ — in short, an amazing improvised free-form trip of impressive magnitude, on par with the music of heavyweights like Neu! and Gila. An adventurous atmosphere throughout, whether the result is hallucinogenic and jazzy, heavy freak and roll with crushing guitars and massive, repetitive, almost funky rhythm, or Jimi Hendrix-inspired. Booklet essay examines the controversy surrounding this and other recordings first made known to the world via Virgin Records’ three-disc Unknown Deutschland series of compilations from the 1990s, including the fact that one ‘Genius P Orridge’ is named as producer of the Golem album.” Jewelbox edition from 2010
