Boomkat Product Review:
Reissue of funky tropicalia and psych from the late ‘70s, impossible-to-find (or très spenny at least) partner piece to Malay/Aussie bandleader Lau’s unreleased 2nd album.
Originally issued to accompany Lau’s thwarted 2nd album and follow-up to 1977’s ‘That Rongeng Sound’ (which also made up Left Ear Records’ first release in 2014), Lau’s sole 7” was issued in limited quantity and was a preserve of the collector’s market until Left Ear stepped in for this reissue, which is bound to push a lot of buttons for vintage DIY rock from the fringes.
The A-side’s ‘Late Night Flyer’ is an ode to the the late night Sydney jazz clubs that Lau frequented and played at during the era, underlined by licks of Latin-influenced jazz rock played by a predominantly Chilean backing band, The East-West Unity Band, while the B-side’s ‘One Dimensional Man’ loosens up on a fiery and funked up psych tip with chipping guitars and swirling bassline holding lyrics inspired by Lau’s favourite philosopher Herbert Macuse, and somehow delivered like a hippie MES.
