Ax Genrich - 'Psychedelic Guitar' (ATM)

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Ax Genrich was the guitarist for Guru Guru from 1970-73.'Psychedelic Guitar' was cut a year before 'Wave Cut' and is more diverse."Blow Up" is mind-blowing with some good rhythm intact and "The Bording Hymm" is a modern day cosmic gem.Both "Got Love" and "South" feature some decent vocals and sizzling harmonica.This is like PURE ear candy for those who want and deserve it."Helicopters" displays Ax's full ability to jam and includes lyrics about flying in Vietnam."Marsyas" showcases some African musical influences.I happen to notice that Ax is often pictured while holding a banjo.What's going on with that?A psychedelic banjo?Talk about some ground breaking music.I've become aware of Ax and bands like Guru Guru about ten years ago now,when I virtually discovered 'krautrock' by accident.I'm even MORE mesmerized when I find out that TODAY,many of the prime/key players or even bands of '70's kraut are not only still around,but still active to some degree and STILL able to record a fantastic full-hearted piece of work.Such as the case,'Psychedelic Guitar'.Long live kraut!Recommended."
