What happens if you take legendary surf guitarist Jerry Cole, after his brief spell with The Animated Egg and put him in a room with a lush orchestra and lots of Philip K Dick books?
According to the sleeve of the original mid-'60s album: 'A space Odyssey in the beat of today – with the far out sounds of tomorrow’s uncharted trip beyond the now generation.'
Yes, all that and song titles like 'Re-Entry To Mog' and the supreme 'A Disappointed Love With A Desensitized Robot'.
'Astro-Sounds From Beyond The Year 2000' is a work of psychedelic genius with a Krautrock-styled rhythm, a trippy meander through the planets that’s very PiL in places over ten years before the fact. As groovy as it gets!
