Product Description

Crystalaugur / Terranaut

NEW LP

REISSUE


1972. Not much is known about this obscurity. The campfire version is these were burned out US GI¿s who recorded a psych album in Singapore in the early 70s.

The album,  would be difficult to get any more simple than this. A basic rhythmic backbone, almost surf rock in texture (especially the guitar leads), sometimes with vocals, sometimes not. It sounds like it was half finished, then possessed by a tax dodge label (in the days when unlimited losses were allowed by the IRS) and released in a small quantity years after it was recorded. Probably the band name and title were made up ¿ which might explain the lack of info.

for fans of obscure basement recordings.

 

CRYSTALAUGUR

Terranaut
OUT- SIDER / LP
SECTION: PSYCHEDELIC, PROGRESSIVE, FOLK > 60's & 70's
Cat. No. : OSR047
Ultimate underground, lo–fi, psychedelic private press album recorded in Singapore by four US teens in 1975.

Loose feel, raw sound, spacey prog /funk touches, sound effects and some proto–DIY, pre–punk vibes which bring to mind Velvet Underground or avant–garage 70s Cleveland bands like Pere Ubu but also hard–rockers ala Pink Fairies or Stray...

Crystalaugur was formed by four young ex–pats attending school in Singapore in the early 70s: Howard Kukla, Kim Bengs, Bryan Hall and Guy Rittger. For most of them this was their first serious musical experience. "Terranaut" was recorded on a 4–track machine and subsequently released by the band in a private edition of 200 copies on their own Warped Records imprint. Bootlegged many times over the years, we present the first ever legit reissue of this "lost–in–time" psychedelic artefact.

*First ever legit reissue done with the band’s involvement.

*Insert with rare photos and detailed liner notes by Jeremy Cargill (Got Kinda Lost, Ugly Things), explaining the fascinating story behind Crystalaugur and debunking many myths and false rumours about the band and their only album.

*LP housed in an old– school– style tip– on sleeve.

*Featured in Hans Pokora’s ’Record Collector Dream’s book with the maximum scale rarity.

"...Terranaut is a rollicking, rumbling and lightly ramshackle bomb of cosmic teenage hard rock informed by an infatuation with the early rumblings of progressive rock (given a proto–punk edge by the discontent of the group’s constituents)." – Jeremy Cargill

Tracklist:
Terranaut – I’ll Be Remembered – Cosmic Journey – You’ve Got To Rap (...) – Uppachit Creek – Easy Term Pleasure – Pams Song – Number 4 – Goodbye
