Dr. Hofmann's Bicycle Ride (CD)
Founded already at the beginning of the 90s, Vocokesh is one of the veterans of psych/kraut/space/drone/impro/garage rock in the US. The bands leader is Richard Franecki who on this album plays guitar, bass, electronics and on one track also electric sitar. Also featured are John Helwig (solo guitar and bass on one track) and Rusty (drums, percussion). I have missed a couple of the bands latest albums but especially the limited vinyl-only release Electric Indian Blues would be a nice item to have. Recorded at various locations and quite ominously entitled Dr. Hoffmanns Bicycle Ride anyway proves that the band has not lost its lysergic magic. The album begins with the nice, a bit more structured psych/garage rock piece "Born Losers". This one has some obvious 60s vibes. The slower "Texas Asphalt Blues" gets into somewhat more experimental direction due to its loud lead guitar work but this track is also clearly composed. The hallucinatory and mystical "The Cruising Song" brings to mind the experimental and psychedelic kraut rock bands from the early 70s and also includes synthesizer. A great jam, actually!
