Second album of Bonn's (further capital of West- Germany) group Arktis. The original album is an old obscurity that intensely makes an original mix of heavy garage bluesy - rockin' songs with emphasis on psychedelica sonorities. This gloriously spaced out musical collective celebrates acid fuzz rock with heavy guitars, infectious grooves, really cool rhythmical sections and an hyper active sense of free instrumentation. 'Newrock' opens the album with a surprising heavy-rockin' song with mind blowing guitar solos and with an evident influence from late 60's psych rock legends. The vocals are in the hippie-stoned like vein. 'High fly' figures among the strongest pieces, strictly instrumental with wha wha bluesy guitars and a massive psych-doom like heavy ambience. This reproduction of the original album comes with insert including band story and rare photos. Remastered the music sounds brilliant. Don't miss this reissue of an original very rare album.
