Psy Valley Hill = LP = (LP)
Gurumaniax are something of a prog-rock supergroup. Led by Krautrock legend Mani Neumeier (drums) and his former Guru Guru stalwart Ax Genrich (guitar), the emphasis is on heavy duty psychedelic prog. Univers Zero member Guy Segers (bass) completes the power trio, with the emphasis fully on power. While Mani has led Guru Guru from 1968 all the way up to the present day, the years Ax spent in the band (1970-75) are generally considered to be their most essential. These were the glory days of Krautrock, and Guru Guru contributed such classics as UFO (1970), Hinten (1971), and Kanguru (1972) to the cause. Guy Segers joined the Belgian "chamber rock" consortium who call themselves Univers Zero in 1979, just in time to appear on Heresie. It is regarded as one of the darkest records ever, and is as mythical in some circles as anything Guru Guru accomplished. With all of these credentials, Gurumaniax sounded great in theory. As we all know however, so-called supergroups are almost always a disappointment. Whether there is too much ego in the room, the guys have lost their chops, or time has just passed them by, these collaborations have a high rate of failure. Thankfully, that is not the case with Psy Valley Hill. As opening track "Drumoroto" unfolds, you get the sense that this is a band with a lot to say. As the title implies, it is a drum showcase, and Mani brings everything he has to the performance. But nobody is laying back. Segers lays down some funky bass, while Ax gets a little crazed feedback action going on his Strat.
