Boomkat Product Review:
Originally released in 2003, this album harks back to the middle period of the mighty Acid Mothers Temple, taking on a four-part David Bowie-themed opus. In reality, the music bares no resemblance to that of the mercurial popstar, but he's used as an excuse to lever some fairly outlandish puns into the song titles. Speaking of which, 'Ziggy Sitar Dust Raga' opens the record with a half familiar sound to the melody, although it may take a few moments before you realise exactly why: it sounds like a spacey, Indian-styled version of the theme tune from Steptoe & Son. Unable to top such a feat, 'Diamond Doggy Peggy' is nevertheless a head-spinningly weird freak-out of the highest order, full of feedback-smearing tape delays and rampant psychedelic drumming. Taking a darker, almost ambient feel, 'Aladdin Kane' meditates on frazzled guitar leads and flooded drone sounds, leaving the analogue synth experiment 'Cosmic Funky Dolly' to modulate its way through twenty minutes of bad-trip weirdness and distant, screeching vocals.
