KMRLP2  37      THUNDERMOTHER           NO RED ROWAN                    2LP     02.2019

A quite mysterious release from mostly studio musicians, of which not much history
is known. 'No Red Rowan', an album of heavy blues, psych, acid rock was released in
1971. Out of the UK, the album is definitely a required rarity for any fan of early
'70s hard/psych stuff. Recorded in 1970-71 in Wakefield, England.
KMR2    38      LAMP OF THE UNIVERSE    THE COSMIC UNION                2LP     04.2019

Lamp Of The Universe is a solo project by Craig Williamson, who was the vocalist,
lyricist and bass player in the mighty Datura, but this is the total opposite of that
group's full-on rock overload. 'The Cosmic Union' is an incense drenched mellow groove
of an album, with sitars, tablas, flute, keyboards, spacious guitar and stoned trancy
drumming. The authentic eastern flavoured '60s sound is comparable to Dead Flowers,
Saddar Bazaar and Tangle Edge, combined with the hypnotic groove of Spacemen 3 abd
the spacier moments of Porcupine Tree. The perfect, opium-hazed soundtrack to those
"quiet nights in". This 2019 version includes unreleased tracks and demos and is
limited to 200 copies on black vinyl.
