Caught as they drifted past overhead amongst some space debris, the robotic arm retrieved these two albums which show two contrasting sides to the multi-national jamming space-rock combo known as The Oresund Space Collective.
This amorphous musical co-operative revolve around the core of synth wizard Scott Heller aka Dr Space, and normally feature at least two guitarists, bass, other keyboards and drums. So, being of a certain vintage, with a line up like that I am immediately put in mind of 70s space rockers Man, amongst others.
Spunk Rock off Greasy Truckers - a massive wigout and still in my all time top ten live performances after nearly 40 years!) and for once I don't mind a band being a bit backward looking, as any band that can rock with the spirit of the much missed Micky Jones is alright by me. Things gently float back to ground with Red Earth Calling, it's been a good trip.
