1. Train Klang 71:12
"Train Klang" is a single 71 minute track featuring Steve Palmer on keyboards, guitar and bass ably supported by Nick Toone (monochord, gliss guitar), Dave Dilliway (audio generator) and Erich Z. Schlagzeug (drums). The music is knitted together by the eerie sounds of Dave's audio generator, reminiscent in places of Hawkwind's DikMik, which run through most of the work. Various train and railway sounds augment this foundation, evoking a strange European landscape perhaps of the early 1970's. Nick Toone's cosmic gliss guitar and monochord expand the work, and there are mood-altering inserts from a drums/bass combination, primitive organ and mellotron, and a central section of multiply echoed electric guitars. It makes for a haunting trip that will find fans amongst those enamoured of the very early Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze albums, and those into the more abstract side of Mooch: a kind of new kosmische musik.
