The second in a series of four Strange Fish vinyls by Fruits de Mer Records. A double LP compilation of krautrock/progressive rock-influenced/guitar-led tracks .
Moonweevil occasionally escapes from the Cranium Pie secret bunker in Wiltshire to deliver a track or two to Fruits de Mer.
Vespero, Organic Is Orgasmic and The Grand Astoria all come from Russia, and specialize in powerful, modern progressive, krautrock and even post-rock (although the ghosts of Hawkwind seem to have sneaked into this particular Grand Astoria session).
Julie’s Haircut are Italian and new to Fruits de Mer, they mix prog, post-rock and even jazz, while Mechanik are Spanish and quote krautrock. kosmische and experimental rock among their influences; both bands are FdM virgins – although they’ve been around a bit.
Vespero and Temple Music delivered a side of music each for FdM’s 2013 Annual 7”, finally
Cat Frequency describes himself as, “me and a pile of instruments and boxes with wires coming out of them all squeezed into an upstairs room” – which is nice.
