Who was the mysterious Cosmic Michael? Nobody knows for surerumour goes that he was a freak from New York who later relocated to the West Coast after living the Woodstock dream. Thats all we know about him. But before vanishing without trace, Cosmic Michael self-released a couple of primitive, home-made albums on his Bliss label. This is his first one, DIY stoner bluesy garage psychedelia with crude organ, guitars and vocals. Featuring underground classics like Cosmic Michael Theme (covered in 2013 by neo-psych band Psychic Ills) and Now That Youve found it among others.. One of the least cosmic-sounding cosmic LPs around, with a loose urban soundcheck vibe using equal parts Vox organ, piano and crude guitar, on top of which Michael semi-improvs lyrics to a steady basement boogie beat. An unusual LP that falls between any genres you can think up; The top attraction is Cosmic Michaels Theme which describes in third person the acid-indulged transformation hes undergone: some kind of chemical change is going on in poor Michaels brain set to a rockin garage fuzz beat - Patrick Lundborg (Acid Archives)
Stoned '60s DIY rock 'n'roll. You can call it lo-fi or home made, but the message remains: Cosmic Michael preaches love and freedom, and he's a mean boogie-woogie player too. The songs run one after the other, as if part of one spontaneous recording - Forced Exposure.
