Product Description

ANNEXUS QUAM

OSMOSE

KRAUTROCK MASTERPIECE

NEW LP REISSUE

purple coloured vinyl

WAH WAH

Considered by many to be one of the finest Ohr albums this debut by the German experimental band can be compared to early Ashra Tempel, Kollektiv and the UK's 3rd Ear Band in that the group launch into space with cosmic free-form improvisations, featuring assorted electric and acoustic instruments.

Long stoned jams filled with spacey reverberations, and drifting musical ideas. Superb!

LPS049 ANNEXUS QUAM – OSMOSE

One of the most interesting and unknown bands from the Ohr catalogue, Annexus Quam had actually a quite long career, having their roots in the outfit Ambition Of Music, formed back in 1967 Kamp-Lintfort (near Düsseldorf). By 1970, and paying tribute to their early name, they had  incorporated a whole array of influences (most important one, the inclusion of jazz instrumentation) and brewed them in what was becoming a very personal progressive fusion of styles, best witnessed in their their debut album: Osmose.

At that time, the band had grown into a septet formed by Uwe Bick (drums, vocals, percussion), Jürgen Jonuschies (bass, vocals, percussion), Werner Hostermann (clarinet, organ, vocals, percussion), Peter Werner (guitar, vocals, percussion), Hans Kámper (trombone, spanish guitar, vocals, percussion), Ove Volquartz (sax) and Harald Klemm (flute, vocals, percussion). Far from a typical jazz sound, they were able to integrate rock and jazz instrumentation into a unique style, which borrowed elements from the aforementioned genres but blended those into an ultimate cosmic fusion (which can recall at times the Third Ear Band, Xhol Caravan or even Ash Ra Tempel yet remaining totally their own).

Actually, Annexus Quam were able to sound meditative, doomy, stoned, aggressive, exotic and lyrical in the same track without loosing any musical coherence or perspective. With their personal style that even today defies categorisation (except for that big umbrella we call kraut rock),Annexus Quam had all the inventiveness and excitement of the 1969/1970 german bands.

 

Osmose: a most unique album by an equally unique band, housed in one of the most luxurious, ellaborated and tripped-out gimmix covers ever made, now reproduced in all it’s multi-folding glory.

Strictly limited  copies - Gimmix folding-pyramidal cover!
