Lovingly pinched from The Sleeping Shaman: Baby Woodrose aka Lorenzo Woodrose has consistently produced the most enthused heart-felt replication of a paisley patterned 60s fuzz drenched avalanche of psychedelic acid trips since the Vietnam war defined an age of social resistance.
Surely he must be regarded as being the undisputed master magician for capturing the spiritually enhanced symmetry of Count Five, The Remains, Music Machine, 13th Floor Elevator, The Seeds style garage music. It is therefore with tense anticipation that I find myself sitting in front of my hi-fi, fingers a quivering, holding the delicate silver CD platter of solid sound from which I am about to gratefully receive a mass cerebral penetration of my third eye.
Now before we begin, my children of the psychedelic dawn, perhaps I should lay the ground firm by providing a descriptive under pinning to the proceedings. The press release accompanying the album boldly states this is the newest endeavour to create a different vibe, with its emphasis now being on colonising the space rock genre.
My initial impression on what I am about to hear tells me I should be looking to Hawkwind or Amon Duul II, as entrenched members of the space rock cosmos, to guide me through this astral vortex. But I am finding it difficult to imagine how Baby Woodrose can possibly achieve the free form spiral tidal wave from jamming out star dusted organic dark matter as these past masters were able to do.
It is with this apprehension and excitement, part of a bi-polar mind expanding stretch between hyperspace and where I am sitting, that I finally succumb to my own curiosity and place the album into the machine.
