Ejwuusl Wessahqqan

Profile:
The utterly unpronounceable Ejwuusl Wessahqqan were a one-shot German progressive/kraut crossover band, whose instrumental, organ-infested eponymous album stands up pretty well in comparison to some of their contemporaries.
Originally released in 1971 in a self released edition of only 300 by the band, this has been an unknown rarity until this reissue. A keyboards/bass/drums trio, they combined the keyboard-driven sound of bands like The Nice with an obvious German slant and a much rawer overall esthetic. This goes back and forth between Nice influenced classical rock to very weird, overdriven and unusual sounds.
Originally they started under the moniker Time Of Waste in 1971
together with a guitarist who disappeared the next year and took that name with him. The bizarre Ejwuusl Wessahqqan derives from a science fiction story written by US artist Clark Ashton Smith. The band's music appears here as mysterious as the band name. Situated in Munich they were related to Amon Düül 2 at that time. You can recognize this when exploring the songs which are experimental and stylistically differing a lot. The self-made 7 stringed instrument Filouphone marks another unique aspect of the band and adds oriental elements to the sound.
