Underground Kraut-Kosmische monster, recorded / produced circa 1972-73 in Cologne by Toby “The Mad T--ST (Underground 1972 Kraut-Kosmische monster)widdler” Robinson for his Pyramid label. Apparently released as an ultra-limited handmade edition back at the time, but no original copies have ever surfaced. Featuring Mythos drummer Hans-Jürgen Pütz on percussion & effects, alongside synth / keyboard freak Alex Meyer, poet / vocalist Pauline Fund and mysterious guitarist Peter Förster.
Tripped out electronic ambient soundscapes, dark atmosphere, drones, plenty of MiniMoog, gothic Hammond organ, Rhodes, electric & 12-string acoustic guitars, ritual chants, effects, horror cinematic vibe…
*Insert with detailed liner notes by Alan Freeman (Ultima Thule / The Crack In The Cosmic Egg);

“Fans of Terry Riley’s “Shri Camel” or Julianna Barwick’s “The Magic Place” will like this one…meditative synth drones and soundscapes that sound almost sacred in places” – Faris Badwan (The Horrors / Cat’s Eyes);
“…haunting and seductive, recalling the atmospheric minimalism of Brian Eno and conjuring up images of celestial angels drifting like ribbons of smoke through the darkness of deep space…” – Bobby Switchblade (Will The Fire);
“…Even the albums I did for the Cosmic Courier label seemed fairly commercial in comparison to what I really found fun…” – Toby Robinson (Pyramid)
