Golem - Orion Awakes (1973)


Niewiele wiadomo o autorach tego albumu, podobno „po godzinach” nagrały go pod pseudonimami głośne nazwiska na krautrockowej scenie. Płyta "Orion Awakes" to potężny i w całości instrumentalny, krautrockowy space-rock, który z całą pewnością zasługuje na miano klasyki tego gatunku. Szkoda tylko, że jest już trochę zapomniany…

***
Epic early to mid-1970's 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, and amazing improvised free-form trip of impressive magnitude, on par with the music of Krautrock heavyweights like Neu! and Gila. An adventurous atmosphere throughout, whether the result is hallucinogenic and jazzy ('Jupiter'), the heavy freak and roll of 'The Returning,' with crushing guitars and massive, repetitive almost funky rhythm, or the Jimi Hendrix-inspired 'Godhead Dance.' 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 1990’s, including the fact that one "Genius P Orridge is named as producer of the Golem album. It’s clear enough to all that Genius P Orridge is strangely similar to the name Genesis P Orridge of Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV fame. The fact that the other names on the Golem album jacket lead nowhere only adds to the confusion. In any case, a deep and fascinating record, still fresh despite the years... and meant to be played loud.

Pyramid Records to była wytwórnia, która nagrywała muzykę w latach 90-tych i wydawała takie niby-reedycje zagubionych klasyków krautrocka.
