Mugstar release...more info

*Green vinyl. Edition of 800* Following up their 'Lime' album for Important, Liverpool's psychedelic rock unit Mugstar have enlisted notorious former Loop frontman Robert Hampson to remix album track 'Serra'. What they, and you, get is an epic, 39-minute overhaul. The first 19 minutes or so concentrate on the cyclical krautrock rhythms, sounding kinda like some long lost session recording from an Alpine commune circa '73; one long Head-feeding stretch of motorik percussion enveloped by blown-out harmonic distortion and squally feedback. The flipside essentially swallows the beat and heads out into vintage Tangerine Dream-alike (Klaus Schulze era) soporific ambient stock now £14
