Excellent kraut, of course... this particular boot is clearly a needle-drop copy, has a few pops and clicks from the vinyl. Still great music, though, and a nice bonus track.

Thing is, there HAVE been official rereleases of things that were booted here, post bootlegging. (I'm thinking of Conrad & Sohn, Jean-Clade Eloy, Dub Taylor* etc.). Perhaps the appearance of the boots has encouraged the offical reissue proccesses? You ... See full review

I incline to the view that they're products of the 90s, just on the way they sound... it seems fairly clear they are. Although the production on Dzyan albums was very 'clean' sounding. Also, Zeus B Held was (is?) partially based in the UK after the ... See full review

Utter masterpiece of brain frying acid snap clang and squelch. Rhythms programmed with less thought for jack and his house than emulation of the snapping on and off of neural connections as burbles, growls, clonks and echoing voices scour your brain ... See full review

Great album. Elements of classic late 90s early 00s electronica (think pole etc.) meet in a sonic mobile of tape hiss and click. Dubby elements and crackles turn slowly in afternoon sunlight. A poised and spacious sound, and a very welcoming and human ... See full review
